This range of etched sides can be used with other parts from the MJT range to create a metal model of a Gresley teak bodied coach.

The sides are 'multi layered' allowing detail such as beading to be represented accurately. Cast door ventilator hoods, etched hinges and handles are supplied with the sides. Vehicles can be made to complement other proprietary offerings so that authentic express formations can be modelled. The instructions give details of build dates, livery, numbering, underframe equipment, etc. These vehicles were built between 1928 and 1929 and feature turnbuckle trussing.
