Parcels Plan

A quiet weekend and the right mindset were the perfect combination to get an Ian Kirk ‘O’ gauge Stanier parcels van kit off the ground. MIKE WILD explains all.

It took me a while to get started on this LMS 50ft full brake, but once it was on the move it assembled quickly. It is now ready for further detailing. The roof and gangways are temporarily fitted with the next stage being handrails and painting of the body.

I REALLY enjoy building kits of any kind, but sometimes I don’t have the right mindset for it. At other times though, the wind is in the right direction and I’m in that mode where I want to build something for myself and that was exactly where I got to during March.
