00 Model Brush Type 2 (Class 31)

 My very first 00 scale diesel I bought in my early teens was a Triang Brush type 2 (later classified class 31). 

Last week I purchased this Airfix version. 

A far better detailed and finished model than the Triang one I had. 

It was missing a coupling and the screw which held the unpowered bogie in the chassis was not fitted and I had to do some work to fix this, hence I got it quite cheap. 

A new coupling arrived in the post this morning along with a set of 'FlushGlaze' windows for it. 

As manufactured these early models had glazing just glued on the inside, but these push into the window aperture so look more authentic.
