On a coach trip!

The latest "creative bodge" to grace my workbench is this scratch built narrow gauge coach.

Built almost entirely of styrene sheets it is now just awaiting some door handles and grab rails before being painted in crimson and cream.

The coach rides on a pair of old Lima 00 gauge diamond frame bogies with some decent plain disc wheels fitted. The only other metal parts are the truss rods and full length step boards.

The design is loosely based on the WHR "Summer" coaches with an observation window at one end.
I need to build another coach of some description with a guard/luggage/brake compartment. I have found a suitable design all I need is more modelling time!

Cheers for now.
