O Gauge Compressor Van   Leave a comment

This project came about via a photo of a scratch built GWR compressor van in OO built for Alices Wonderful Railway which is on Facebook. I contacted her for permission to copy and use her photo as a reference piece, which she duly granted.

The chassis is of the self Peco RO-8 Br 9ft chassis – steel type as it is basically the same as in the photo.

The body is made from plasticard cut to the length and width of the chassis and all other parts are made from bits from the spares box.

To get the height right I measured a Peco 8ton banana van, It is painted in GWR freight grey with HMRS transfers.
