GRS Gresley Coach "Skeleton" kits .....if  you are thinking of buying a Gresley "skeleton" coach kit (GRS list 3 as being "in stock"), be warned!

A friend made an enquiry about the availability of the modules required to complete sides/ends/detailing for these "bare bones" kits and was told none of the items necessary to complete the kits are in stock and there are no plans to re-stock!

That effectively turns the remaining "skeletons" into "white elephants" ....... unless you are willing to scratch build the sides/ which case it makes more sense to build the entire carriage.

If you have already bought a "skeleton" and have been pondering which type of carriage to build before ordering parts to complete .......hard luck!

My fellow Members, ask not what your Society can do for you, ask what you can do for your Society.
