How many vans does a guard need?

With the IZ/RY wagons ready for paint, it's time to look at finishing a project that has been on the backburner for 2 years:

Some time ago I purchased a Broad Gauge Bodies ZF van kit. While not a hard kit to assemble the castings do require some work to get them to a good standard. As such mine has remained in a box awaiting the day I'd finally look at finishing it. Some work was done on the kit late last year which resulted in the basic componments being assembled to a running standard. I am now working on adding the detail which will make it look more like the van it will represent.
The next post should contain some photos of the progress.

Riveted Wagons

Steam Era Models excellent riveted IZ/RY wagons are the first project to be posted on this blog. The detail is supurb and rivals any of the RTR product coming onto the market. These two wagons are now ready to enter the paint shop.

Hello and welcome

Blogs seem to be the way people show off their model railway efforts these days so I have finally joined the fold. I hope the content of this blog will not only appeal to those who model Victorian Railways but also to those who enjoy model railways in General.
