NIR Parcel Van by Keiran Lagan
Allen Doherty of Worsley Works did an etch for me of a NIR Parcel Van.
|I finally got around to starting on my Worsley Works Parcel Van brass
etchings. I have to confess right away that I had help
in the form of a master class on how to soldier brass and it was my tutor who did all the hard bits leaving me to run the
soldering iron over the pieces.
|I used an old Airfix coach as a donor and a good bit of it had to be cut away to allow the 3 doorways on either side.|
|A first coat of primer which showed any gaps to be filled.|
|A little bit of colour helps a lot.|
|Waiting on decals from Railtec before finishing it off.|
|Parcel Van Completed.
Took on board the advice on the gangways and "plated them up" I also took some of the height of the roof vents.
Railtec provided the decals and I must mention Steve was very helpful in getting them right.
