Just finished, this old MAJ Collet Passenger Brake Van kit. Given its age, this £15 item went together reasonably well, although a lot of age-related warping had to be contended with. The self-adhesive sides has held up reasonably well though, without too much shrinkage. The lettering / branding is by Railtech [never used their transfers before and am quite impressed by them] and I have added etched door handles and grab rails to lift the very flush appearance of the sides. The coach is extremely free-running.

Obviously, these look a little dated when compared with the latest Hornby Collets or Hawksworths, but that's not the point: the build was extremely satisfying and where else would you get a PBV for just £15?
