1.2 M R Coaches
This is a series of frets for selected Midland coaches mainly of the Clayton square panelled period, though some diagrams were built in the Bain period. These frets include an etched roof with rainstrips and ventilator/lamp bases incorporated. A very high level of detail is provided in these ‘body only’ frets. Suitable bogies are available separately unless the bogie is of a type un-available elsewhere in which case complete bogie kits are provided with consequent price increase.

2 Etched parts for use with etched sides
These components are intended to permit the completion of COMET and 247 Developments loose sides for LMS coaches in brass. The basic unit is the underframe etch which provides a stable floor (much easier to solder sides to than copper clad ) with fold down trusses, separate solebars, fold up flaps to take the sides and an auxiliary etch with cross bracing members, brake vees, steps etc. There are sets of etched ends with detail far crisper than castings, sold in pairs to suit all periods and coach types. Correct bogies with lost wax castings are available together with a range of lost wax accessories to enable completion of the model entirely in brass, much stronger and more durable than any other medium.
2.1 Underframe and Floor Kits
All these kits are priced at £6.50 and include the accessory etch LM306 with crossbraces, brake vees , vestibule connections, etc. If the diagram number of the intended model is quoted on the order then the correct length footboards will be supplied.
U 101 57ft
U 104 50ft (full footboards only in kit, but can be shortened for kitchen cars etc)
U 105 68/69ft
2.2 Etched ends and other detailing parts
Ends are sold in pairs at £3.00, and are designed to suit the coach type listed. LMS coaches typically have slight differences at each end and these are catered for, as well as the three main periods and two possible variations in period II.
