Ex Parkwood Models kit.
The LMS and later BR built over 10,000 of these medium open drop sided wagons between 1935 and 1950. The LMS was the only group company to build medium open wagons. Under BR they were often borrowed by the engineers, for example for carrying used ballast, and in the 60s most were transferred to the engineers department where they lasted into the 80s. The kit is straightforward to build using a Peco 10ft chassis kit which is included.
Decals are not included in this kit, but are available under 'NGS Decals, item NGST0800’ (click to go to page).

These wagons were the commonest match wagons for the LMS/LMR Cowans Sheldon cranes, soon to be released by the NGS.
There will be a new decal sheet covering a variety of different match wagons that are available RTR or as kits. It includes six different sets of decals for this kit as a match wagon, covering all eras from 3 through to 9.
