Thanks both. As I said, it's supernumerary, so I'll get it done under warranty at some point. Other things to worry about before then.

IN the December issue of Model Rail Magazine there was a "How to" article covering the conversion of a OO brake van into a Road Van.  I had never heard of a Road Van before, but the GWR used them so I thought one would fit in nicely on my layout. 
Last week I nabbed a second hand GF Toad on e-bay for £4.20.  I drew up some doors and strengthening formers in ACAD the cut them from 0.8 and 1.6mm plywood on my laser cutter. 

Panel cut away with a razor saw, edges cleaned up. The "planked" backing overlaps the opening by 2mm each side with the inverted v laminated on top.

I broke one of the roof support rails when I levered off the roof, replaced with a bit of plastic strip.  Plywood door painted with Humbrol Dark Grey wash which seems to be a reasonable match to the naked eye, not obvious at all like it is with the camera/flash combination.  I will weather it next time I have a general stock weathering session.

I'm rather pleased with the result.
