GW Wooden Mink to Dia. V4, V12 and late V12


Vacuum cylinder, crank, tiebars and vacuum pipes included with each model

SKU: N/A Category:


The Great Western Railway built a huge number of vans of different sizes, designated eventually by the Code V and they became widespread throughout the United Kingdom.
Minerva’s models depict a total of 3 different diagrams, and are now available. Fitted with DC3 brake-gear, some went on to be vacuum fitted and many survived into the early British Railways period.
The models include parts for optional vacuum cylinders, vacuum pipes and tie bars for the W irons, with DC3 brake gear.
Three diagrams are available, the V4 without ventilators, V12 with the end louvres in the closed position and V12 with the twin end bonnets.
They are  available in three liveries:  1903 Great Western, 1923 GW and British Railways unfitted.  Different numbers for some liveries are provided, see the individual descriptions for details. The models feature a plastic injection-moulded body and chassis, metal-tyred wheels on shouldered axles fitted  in compensated axle-boxes, sprung buffers and hook draw-gear with three-link couplings.
