Austrian brake van conversion finished...

This evening I finished the Austrian OBB inspired brakevan, based upon the LGB balcony vented goods van.

The work has involved filling the vents, cutting and fabricating windows, adding an end door, smoothing off some other details, respray and then custom transfers.

I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. Initial inspiration came from Bruce of the Hill Head and Dales Light Railway conversion's along with the book 'Schmalspurig Durch Osterreich'.
I lettered her for the EJ&KLR as although it's a reasonable replica I didn't follow one prototype too closely.
