When the group build was originally proposed I didn't think I had anything suitable to do, but then I remembered a set of parts I had languishing in a an old ice-cream tub. So I dug it out to see what I had, hopefully the group build will give me the impetus to actually get them finished. The intention was to build a couple of LMS long tube wagons (Diag.1945) - something like this LMS Tube wagons | KDM499768 STO It was inspired by the series of articles on wagon building in MRJ by Chris Croft. So after more than a few years delay this is my starting point. The bodywork is birch plywood with the planking scored in. I have 4 sides, 4 ends and a couple of floors. The corner strapping was fashioned from an empty beer can, a little wet and dry to remove the print, cut with a knife and folded. Some brass channel for the subframe, scale7 wheels and some cast axle-boxes. I have some sprung W irons on order, some buffers in a box somewhere otherwise that is the "kit".
