Pre 1979 code: VSX

250 of these 56' Louvre vans were built in the early-mid 1970s, the largest of the louvre vans.

Model manufactured by: Aust-N-Rail

Simple model to assemble - a single polystyrene body and a polystyrene underframe. I use Quick Grip to glue them together.

Paint wagon red. There are many similar colour paints you can use. It's worth using a few of them on different wagons to give a bit of variety in tone, as you would find variation between real wagons.

Roofs are mostly silver.

Make sure you put a clear gloss coat before the decals and a flat (dull) coat after the decals have dried.
