New Product Test BR GUV Newspaper Van
« on: Feb 07 2016 10:28 »
Morning all,
Last weekend I picked up from Greenwood Models the test prototype of their new product for Gauge 3, a BR GUV newspaper van. Having test run it this weekend it  runs very well. Greenwood models are the company who laser cut my O&K hopper wagons for me and do an excellent job. The kits push together and are accurate enough that theoretically glue would not be required.
The GUV will be at the AGM at the end of the month where expressions of interest will be taken and we should have a price worked out.
Its laser cut MDF and plywood with Whitemetal detailing / Steel bogies.

Looks great Keith, can't wait to see it at the agm. Can you tell me about the buffers you've used - they look like good replicas of the real ones.

cheers

Thanks Ian,

The buffers are Walsall models mark 1 buffers. Hopefully soon I will be able to change the shanks for oval ones.
Catch up at the agm.

regards
Keith.
