Here we have a pretty much complete kit for a Winson/Modelworks 5″ Gauge BR Britannia. It was purchased brand new by it’s previous owner directly from Winson initially (for the first few kits), and then after a 7 month interlude in the middle while the receivers did their thing, the remaining kits to complete the model were shipped from Modelworks.
The first few kits have been assembled some time ago, and although doused in WD40 to protect the surfaces they show a very light amount of surface rust. It is superficial and will rub off with a decent bit of wire wool. Most of the boxes have only been opened a couple of times to check their contents. Whilst we can’t really spend the time checking that every last component is there, the previous owner has done so, and missing at the moment is simply a few basic gaskets and bits and bobs that you would almost certainly be wishing to replace with more substantial items anyway. Certainly the vast majority and all the significant components are all present and correct!
We've seen a lot of the MW Britannias finished off into lovely models, and there is a huge wealth of information and support out there for people attempting this build, where you can find out exactly how and where to make modifications and alter things to make it work well.
On top of that, if you rely want to make a lovely job of it, we also have the D.Hewson range of fittings and BR standard parts here at The Steam Workshop. So we can supply all the jewellery to make the model look just like the real thing, as well as fully cab kits, tender body laser cut kits, smoke box kits, new CNC chimney machinings. Pretty much everything that you could possibly want to finish the basic Modelworks Britt off to look like an accurate scale model of the real thing.

Sorry It's Sold!
