BERGS CV VAN part 2

I like to add underfloor detail to my 4 wheelers to fill in the void between the axles. The following photos are a way of achieving this.The wheels are Steam Era rp25 88 as I find these are a bit more realistic than rp25 110, it’s a matter of choice really. Buffers are Krystal castings that I’ve had for a long time. Brake wheels are from the same fret as the W irons, wire used is phospher bronze or brass will do 20 and 15thou. Next week
the roof.

    I like the underframe detail you’ve added – it really enhances the wagon’s appearance. Out of interest, where did you get the triangular brass component that goes between the brake shoes and brake rods? I’m doing up a few 10′ wagons and would like to do the same.
    Cheers,
    Ben
