I assume the bit over the cab is where they put the calves?

The over cab section more likely carried straw bales, ropes to use as halters , brushes, shovels and disinfectant.

Great service from Osborns. Ordered yesterday morning and received this morning. :claphappy:
A tad expensive compared to the price of Oxford models but I had to get them (the Dornaplas one was waayyy too old for my era)

Nice idea, but it's a shame no-one looked at some real ones before designing it. Typically they have the bodies sat above the chassis, and the planking is solid with gaps at head (and occasionally waist) height.

Cheers

They do normally have cutout slots but that was likely to cause issues when printed so were left off.

These were not a copy of a specific one but a mixture of various different ones, a couple of which are below

Your post and pics certainly clear things up a bit..... but seriously, in this scale, are we that worried?

Those are really nice models to my eyes, and they  would look great on any layout of the period.  :beers:

The higher mounted ones are often a body placed on a truck flatbed. Commonly used in areas where the haulier is multi-purpose rather just a livestock mover. They can remove the livestock body and deliver other goods loaded on the flatbed.

Clear in this photo.

An AL digger model

These were used for loading MGR wagons from stockpile at Immingham Docks in the 1990s.

seen at Thornbury show ( Old & new)









the models are printed with  lasers scanning a tank of photosensitive plastic, and  are almost free of the striations the "ink-jet " style printers produce.
