Summer Coach - Pt.1

After witnessing a demonstration of kit building at this years 16mm NGM National show, I was quite impressed with the quality and ease of build of a Houstoun Gate Locomotive Works wagon.

Upon my return home I subsequently gave HGLW a call and ordered a Summer Coach from their range.

After less than a couple of hours I had most of the model built.
All of this model, bar the roof, is made from precision cut MDF.
There wasn't much need to file down any retaining tabs and all throughout assembly was perfectly square.
The chassis's were in two identical sections which slotted into the underneath of the coach perfectly.
