  • An Etched Brass G.W.R. Siphon Kit

    Adrian Gray

    Issue 4 (1985)



    The six-wheeled milk vans with slatted sides and heavy outside framing were a distinctive and long-lived component of the Great Western scene. Until recently, apart from a rather unsatisfactory plastic kit, the modeller's only option when wishing to re-create these intersting vehicles was to resort to scratch-building, always a tricky business. D&S Models have recognized the potential of etched brass for modelling of this sort and the result is the kit discussed here by Adrian Gray.

    The model represents a low-roofed, 6-wheeled vehicle constructed according to Diagram 04. The article includes scale drawings and a prototype photo.
