Endo PRUS kit was built up per instructions but with side protection bars and brake steps formed up from styrene strip, wire brake handrails and brake hoses as shown in the pre-painting picture at base above. I did'nt replace the moulded end handrails and coupling levers as they aren't overly visible in use. A note for first timers to these kits (like me!), the "decals" are rub-on rather than water applied.The wagons were spray painted gloss black before decalling, with the brake angle and step support being picked out in white, before weathering and dullcoting.
