Thornycroft lorry kit

I've been sorting out a couple of year binders of RM that I picked up at Luton and slicing out the articles I want to keep. One thing that I'm noticing is the regularity that this little kit turns up on layouts. Probably not surprising being that it's a Peco agency kit and is so readily available, but where are all the conversions? They are all to a man built with the canvas tilt and the standard W/B. No flat beds, box bodies, cage sides or even as this one will be with a high headboard and sans canvas. Not a very imaginative lot are we?

What I am noticing is that the plastic is very brittle and even with the requisite amount of care a lot of bits are being broken coming off the sprue or in the clean up.
