A new brake van

One of the kits I bought at NGSW was a rather nice and quirky looking brake van from the Chrises Ward. It is a kit made of 3D printed parts. I've decided that it will be a very nice mess van for the IoSR works train.
 
 
 
 
The kit has no chassis but is designed to sit on a PECO wagon chassis which I just happened to have in stock. The handrails are ordinary office staples as the print comes with holes in it designed for just this use, a neat idea.
 
 
I've added a chimney pot for the stove from a whitemetal casting and a hand brake wheel on the door end.


Here it is with the new Minitrains Gmeider to give an idea of the size of the van, it is quite small.
