Scale 5" gauge NSWGR 4-wheel covered wagon body kit.
Supplied as a 'Flat Pack' kit with 2 sides and 2 ends. Unpainted. Requires assembly.
The body for this model is constructed from fibreglass and resin and the kit includes almost all the detail required to complete a detailed model of a NSWGR covered wagon. The body kit includes two sides and two ends, enough to complete ONE wagon.
This model of the NSWGR Covered Van (coded CV) is based on the covered vans that were constructed during 1948 to 1953. The body was of timber construction and was externally braced. All but 3 CVs were withdrawn from service by 1983. The vans were built onto the standard 18ft long, 10ft wheel base steel "S" truck underframe and were fitted with automatic couplers.
Covered vans were used to transport goods that required shelter during transport hence the name "Covered Van".
From 1963 to 1966 50 CV vans were converted to ABV (Arnotts Biscuits Van) and they were used by Arnotts Biscuits to transport their product from the factory at North Strathfield to country towns around NSW and beyond. This body can be built into an Arnotts Biscuits van (ABV) if the modeller desires with the addition of extra body detail.
