Parkside Dundas PC36 SR (Ex SECR) PMV. Even Planked Version. Plastic Kit.
This is an older issue of the Kit, going by the packaging and instructions...C 1989...
This kit makes up into the South Eastern & Chatham Railway type van, and includes optional parts to make a Southern Railway Built version (1930s, Even Planked type).
The optional parts are the Chalk Boards, and side vents. The chalk boards may have been fitted to SECR vans, as the Bluebell Railway has one in SECR colours. (But this may not be fully authentic.)
Southern Railway version...
Romford metal disk wheels (Coach, 14mm type) and brass beraings are supplied, as are mountings for a Tri-ang Type MKIII Tension Lock Coupling.
The partially made up kit...
The roof is not glued on yet... painting and glazing to do first!
All the parts in the photos are supplied in the kit, except for the coupling hooks, which are whitemetal ones from out parts stock. Plastic hooks ARE provided though!
I was wondering about the colour of the window bars.
Some real ones seem to have galvanised bars. Of course, the RTR ones have white lines printed onto the glazing (see Hornby Dublo / Wrenn / Dapol models...).
Parkside Dundas kit...Part 2... Couplings fitted.
