Etched Pixels / Ultima N Gauge Catalogue 2016 GWR Hawksworth Coaches (2mm)

With the end of the Second World War in sight the Great Western Railway instructed Hawksworth to design new rolling tock for the post war future. The prototypes were readied in 1945 and a building plan was made for 1946. Post-war material shortages and labour shortages meant that the first few vehicles were not produced until the end of 1946. With nationalisation in sight the directors cut back orders and the majority of these vehicles were built in early British Rail days. These were to be the last GWR style coaches built. Altogether 550 were built between 1946 and 1953 with withdrawals beginning in 1965 and ending in 1967. Some were transferred to departmental use and in time around a dozen were preserved.

The kits consist of a fold up etched floor combined with etched sides, and plastic ends and roof. Buffers, screws, underframe and roof detailing parts are included with the kit along with glazing material and pre-printed interior dividers. You will need a pair of suitable bogies. For those who prefer to use RTR bogies the Farish Mark 1 coach bogies are not entirely correct but can be used, except for the six wheel sleeper.

Full instructions are included as well as information on how to build the kit without soldering if so desired.
