Body Works and the Liverpool train show.

Over the last couple of nights ive managed to complete the body work for the Explosive van.
First I scribed in the lines to represent the doors and the timber work into the plywood sides of the van.

This afternoon after returning to mum and dads place from my trip out to the Liverpool model train show, I managed to glue on the railcraft door hinges and louver van door handles onto the body and now it really is starting to look like an explosive van!

 Body works complete.

PV 675.

Now Ill have to turn my attention to building the roof for it and setting up the running gear.

As I mentioned further up I visited the Liverpool Model Railway show today and as with previous years I attended it was worth the look. Plently of great layouts to see and lots of great things to buy. I had to keep myself from buying the new Austrains pack of a LHO guards van, KP Mail Van and FS pass car. I dont need a smaller scale to model in (however they would look great behind my trainorama 3245!). I was a bit disapointed that Austrains is only selling in 3 packs. Some of us out there only want to buy 1 FS or a guards van etc. 

Thats all for now.
