External detail kit for the Lima South African Railways C-36 passenger carriage. Five sets, includes:
Underframe details - All tanks, vacuum reservoirs, etc. the underframe detail includes a socket which aligns with the sprue remanants in the centre of the underside of the carriage, so that everything ends up in the correct place
Steps and coupler pockets - the steps and coupler pocket assemblies fit snugly under each end. The coupler pockets are suitable for Kadee #158 or #178 whisker couplers. An M1.4x5mm screw is required to fix each coupler pocket lid. IMPORTANT: On the black solebar under each vestibule side door is a moulded representation of the top step. This MUST be removed with a sharp hobby knife, otherwise attempts to fit the assembly will lead to the steps breaking off. Any damage to the kit due to a failure to follow this step will be the responsibility of the purchaser.
Bogie adaptors - the bogie adaptors fit into the existing carriage bogie mounts for the factory bogies and ensure that when our bogies are used, the carriage sits at perfect scale height, and the coupler is at the correct height. M2x5mm screws can be used to mount the bogies
Gummiwurst mounts - mounts for the intercoach weather protectors. 3.5mm diameter heatshrink tube can be used to represent the rubber tube
