Bashing coach kits in 009

Kit Bashing coach kits in 009
One of the staples of 009 modelling over several decades has been the Vale of Rheidol coach. The matchboard sides mean that it is easy to chop down in length to produce a number of varied generic late 19th and early 20th century vehicles. Here's a bit of compare and contrast: On the left the standard Orne coach which is a straight 2/3s length reduction with added lamp housings. On the right the current build, a conversion to a Welsh Highland Railway No 23 - full 32' length retained, but lowered on the bogies and reduced in body height.
