Doesn't time fly in the our world of modelling? Back in 2015 having been disappointed when I realised that the M&M Pipe Wagon wasn't built by the LNER despite being principally to an LNER design, and not wishing to tackle another anytime soon I looked at the Parkside BR Pipe wagon kit to see if it could be converted into an earlier version. Via a discussion on the Guild Forum Paul Bartlett, renowned wagon guru reckoned that it couldn't be done but being perverse I decided to have a go anyway (I had bought the kit by this time). As far as I could see I needed to remove some bodyside details and reinstate them and then change the brakes from Morton style to the LNER type with three V hangers. Below is a series of photos showing what I did. You can see from the scratch marks where I had to scrape of some bodyside detail. I had an LNER brake rod in my spares box but it wasn't long enough so I extended it.
