This is a multimedia kit with etched Nickel Silver - Body, Bogie & Underframe, printed or cast brass parts - the Roof is pre-rolled and all the bigger or more difficult folds "releaved" to make bending possible with care by hand.
The Bogies have full break gear with plastic brake shoes (NO shorts) and designed to accept Slater Wheels, but others shouldn't be a problem.
The Underframe is highly detailed and comes complete with, dynamo, battery box, brake cylinder and linkage.
The Body design has "pockets" to accept glazing after painting and is designed to bolt to the underframe to make painting easier.
The Roof is removable which again will make painting easier and allow the fitting of interior detail. (Seperate pack)
As per normal wheels, paint and transfers are required to finish.
