Just checked my 9 examples of the Bachmann BR vans (38-160, 38-160A, 38-161, 38-170, 38-171, 38-171A and the Modelzone triple pack) - all have different roof finishes. Maybe all of a particular catalogue number have the same roof finish but then if you are going to have more than one of a particular catalogue number then you ought to be renumbering them, so running a mucky paint brush over the roof is hardly troublesome.
Now have the 3 pack of weathered vans from Hattons and all have different roof finishes, two are similarly but in good light are plainly different so Wayne Rites post seems to yet another unneccessary ill informed bachmann bashing exercise which we could all do without.
The latest one from Bachmann, 38-170A, has a very light nearly white roof which contrasts sharply with the varying greys of the rest of the 38-170/171/180/181 releases. As an "early"liveried model it has quickly gone into the box of stock to use on my layout in its earlier BR period rather than the c 1966 stock box.
