New brake for Garn

At the Worthing show last week it was apparent that shuttling one brake van about between trains was not ideal so....Something slightly more workaday than the bugbox derivative was thought about.

Take one Peco 10' brake chassis, 50p's worth of plastic some bog-roll and a cotton bud... and...

The sheet bits are 40 thou, the framing is all 40x40 thou square. Planks are hand scribed (ha!)
Roof is 20 thou with toilet paper canvas and a couple of mil of cotton bud.
Inspiration is from three vans in the Boyd Mid-Wales book. The basic shape from the GVT, the framing from the Corris and the balcony from the Welshpool.
