pva glue and paint required to complete this kit
Just over 550 of these early 6 ton payload LMS 6-wheeled CCTs were built on re-cycled ex Midland or LNWR coach underframes (this model pictured on ex LNWR type). Minor detail differences existed to suit the frames used but they were all built to the same basic body shape. After 1959 they were banned from passenger trains after which many were downgraded to departmental use. However when first out shopped they were painted in fully lined LMS Crimson. Later the body ends of most were painted black.Note the unusual LNWR tie rods which can be removed to replicate the ex MR underframe using the alternative brake handle.
