Good choice. Should cut down to the earlier version if anyone is brave enough to try.
Bachmann A2 to A2/3: from my thread in Model Railways page 56 to 83, also

Hornby A3 to A1/1 Great Northern: from page 84, in resin from page 108.


Apologies for so many missing images - see page 1 for reasons & possible solution.

Thanks Graeme. Foxhunter used to do a kit for this van but it sadly hasn't been available for some time now. I also picked this van as I'm sure Farish will do the 10' wheelbase version in due course and in any event, it wouldn't be difficult to adapt one of the many LNER 'standard' van kits to make a representation of one.

Now, what I'd love to do is one of the first LNER fish vans types but unfortunately my copy of Mr Tatlow's book doesn't have any drawings of these...

Having moved the printer down from the shed into the garage, it finally got set up again today.

A warts and all (and poor quality, sorry) picture of the initial print of the Dia 23 fish van. I need to do some tweaking to the support structure and orientation of the print as I think I can do better than this initial test print.

The upper section where the roof will go looks ragged as I just pulled the supports off the model and didn't bother to carefully trim them (it was only a test print after all!).
