Rather than clutter up my chaotic kitchen table thread I thought I'd separate the London Transport stuff. To begin this is a Slaters LNER/BR brake van - sort of built up in accordance with the instructions . The prototype was part of a 1961 LT order for new brake vans, built at Ashford to diag 507/1. However, B.581 does not have roller bearings unlike others in the same LT order - B.583 for example.. As usual there are couple of modifications required to turn the Slaters kit into the Ashford built LT variant. Cabin doors - from photographs the LT brake van cabin doors were hung on the left - not on the right as in the kit. And they open outwards. Buffers - the standard RCH? style provided in the kit are incorrect. I need to acquire some like this (enlargement from a t'interweb photo for illustrative purposes). Wheels - I replaced the 2 hole disc wheels in the kit with 3 hole disc wheels from my own stock. Upright hand rails - the inner ones were extended downwards and terminate under the cabin. Anyway here's progress thus far.... The body was sprayed with Tamiya rattle can grey primer and several dark grey washes to tone down the grey. The ends were painted a standard red from the Vallejo Model Air range. Decals are from Radley Models.
