Googling images for "6 wheel toad 26ton brake van" gets me lots of pictures - many of models, but  quite a few original photos.

and a lot of detail about the GWR versions (with pictures and detailing) although none seem to be 26T at

Thanks peter,l seem to have made a mistake in my post,the weight should be "24 tons",not 26,.....yes you are correct,there are a fair few pictures online,but l am after a really good 3 view drawing.....l am sure the info exists,the model kit people had to get their details from somewhere,the 3 view you found is of a 4 wheel vehicle,but that is the sort of thing l am after.......l intend to produce a 5"gauge model for use as a driving truck,the extra wheels will spread the load better,cheers,jack.
