SR Dia 1579/1582 Brake Van - Update

Current state of play.  I have managed to get most of the van done and a rolling chassis.  I still have to sort out the roof detail (the vents are easy but the chimney is proving a little bit of a problem as I don't have anything the right diameter in my bits box that I can see - but I am sure there is something.  There is still the hand rails, then painting and the addition of three link coupling chains to the hooks.  Other than that, mostly done.  I am hoping to have it substantially finished by the end of the week along with D2201 and the mineral wagons, thus finishing the first train for the W&U plans - only 12 months after starting...
