SAR NG-V2 Brake Van ‘Original Condition’ Kit

This 16mm scale kit represents the characterful ‘V-2 Brake Van’ in its original SAR condition. This vehicle was rebuilt from an ex- Otavi Railway Box Van and was noted as often being used on limestone trains on the Avontuur Branch. It is shown here in Imperial Brown as depicted in S. M. Moir’s Photograph in 24 Inches Apart.

The kit is available in MDF or Plywood depending on your preference (see pricing below) and utilises hidden slot and tab construction as an aid to easy and accurate construction. As per all of my kits it features individual glazing pieces and droplight details. Due to the interior being very dark, no significant interior detail is provided.

Although prototypical for SAR, this short bogie vehicle would fit right in on all but the very smallest 16mm scale railways and its loading gauge would complement many of the medium and larger sized generic live-steam locomotives currently on the market.

Most of the vehicles represented in the range were built in significant quantities. As such no lettering or numbering is provided as it would be impractical to include so many numbering options. However, ‘Endon Valley Decals’ produce appropriate decals and these can be customised to suit your requirements.
