Silhouette Cutter drawings for NER CCT Van

Moving rapidly on I have started on a proper project.

 

While attending the select meeting for Railart 2015 I met fellow O gauge modeller and artist David Halliwell. While chatting David was telling me about an NER Bogie CCT van that he had scratch built using Kirk parts as a basis (for anyone wishing to have a look it can be found in the Guild gallery Here).

 

He mentioned a drawing and I asked if I could have a copy which he sent though as promised and when I was looking for a project for the cutter I thought that it offered potential. However while looking through Historic Carriage drawings vol one for the info on the Kirk parcel vans I noticed that there was a section on NER CCTs and not only was there information and a set of drawings for the bogie versions (there are two with different window/vent combinations) but there was a 4 wheeled version which I thought might be a better bet than jumping straight into the bogie van.

Tuesday evening was spent scanning the drawings and resizing them etc. and then yesterday I made a start. and this is where I got to.

From the drawing the ends look to be the same on all three so if I move on to one of the bogie versions I can re-use the end drawings.
