    I'm very happy to report that Fred Phipps is making good progress with the master for what will be a resin cast body for the ubiquitous 12T BR van.

    Looking good for fertiliser deliveries to North Cornwall in 2016........

    That really looks fantastic, can always rely on Fred :)
    Looking forward to building one of them to run somewhere...

    I believe that availability will be in about 2 months time:)

    A superb bit of work, thank you very much Fred!!

    Very nice indeed - like all of Fred's stuff - will the chassis (assuming it's supplied) have the correct BR pattern W irons? No, I'm not in the market for one...

    Chassis to be confirmed, currently sitting on a Mercian etch but I'm hoping something more correct for the body will be devised.

    In the meantime scratch building and Slaters W irons (ironically from their 10mm kit of the same prototype) together with their buffers will see one nearly there.

    Great! Those pressed steel ends are really something else.
