Hornby V.R.Z Australian brake van

Postby Ken Shabby » Sat Oct 21, 2017 10:41 pm

Yesterday I picked one of these up for a tenner .
Before I start painting it and generally start fiddling around with it, Is it rare ? and should be left alone ?

Cheers, Ken

I wouldn't have thought so.
"12,500 solo models produced and more in train sets."
I have rare wagons that are released in less than a 200 model production run. They are rare....and expensive. :shock:

They are quite rare to find and often sell for a bit, I'd love a few of them to put into different liveries.

As an Aussie I can say that anyone modelling Victorian Railways would give their left leg for one of those babies, that is the non rivet counter type modellers.
