Getting used to these fiddly brake stuff gubbins

Kit goes together nicely once the parts are assembled and have been prepared

Brake stuff added and kadee coupling added.

Even though the brake wheels won't be visible from outside once the roof goes on they had to be painted red.

Had to put a little man on the veranda. A very pleasant wagon I'm delighted to have on the layout. Straddles my preferred era nicely.

That looks really good Noel, I also replaced with wire the brake hangers and step supports it makes such a difference. And I put a brake cross beams between the brake blocks plus a longtitudal fake pull rod. A really nice kit thats a pleasure to build, it looks so good behind a J15  :tumbsup:
