...It's a little hypocrytical to say that I wagons are not exactly interesting, yet you go ahead and buy some and you are very happy with them...I just don't understand your relevance of that project...

...Anyway, that BW looks pretty good, keep up the nice selection of choice of SEM kits :)

I wagons aren't that interesting... Until you actually look at how many variations there are, and try to work out which variations cover which era!

Then they become interesting... And annoying! :P

As to lettering position, what era are you aiming to model Stevo? The lettering changed 3-4 times (major changes), hence why it seems all over the place...

Also, there are a few brake kits from SEM...

The GY kit (no longer available)
The I/IA/B kit (covers the standard I wagons)
The I/IA/M/P/U/T kit (covers the 'Tommy Bent' I wagons, plus the short U and T vans, and the others listed)
U/T/UP/TP/UB/IY kit
Pass car kit (covers E and W cars)

The two 'I wagon' versions have different length and shape handbrake levers, as they are for two different length wagons :)

I am modeling the second version on the I wagon decal setup thingy on the back of the SEM Instructions, Zec...

...Nathan, I have no idea why you are so uptight recentally, and I don't recall ever saying I wagons weren't interesting... I have no idea what you are talking about and would appreciate not being 'told off'...

...anyway, thanks for the comments guys :)

Cheers
Stevo

Easier if you tell me what era ;) :P

1928-58, 1958-72, or 1972+?

Not exactly 'telling' you off, just stating... You did mention to me when I got my I wagon completed; I quote 'I wagons aren't very uncommon, I have a few here...' With that said, it gives out an impression that you don't quite like them and don't care...

...I apologise for being so 'uptight' but it is not my fault when you can be a little hypocrytical.

Well, at least you got your I wagon with all the proper parts, I had to scratchbuild some stuff on mine ;)

it looks like you did a good job on the BW window frames, it took me a very long time to get the windows on my AW right, i had to use a pin to paint them. :roll:

Yeah, it can be a b****. I masked it off and sprayed it. Got a bit extra on the door but its not too bad...

...Nathan, What I meant is that I see them often and would prefer to see your scratch built stuff, as I wouldn't see it often :) Its fine to show your progress with kits though. Its nice to be told you've built them correctly :lol:

Zec, it the 1958-'72 version...

Cheers
Stevo

Hey Steve,

Would be easier to spray the body first then hand brush the window frames.

Cheers.
