Some more positive observations about the Grain to note.
The body itself is held on the chassis by means of two small screws, easily removed from the underside with the break point perfectly sited if you wish to repaint yours.
Also apparent is the void on the chassis representing the hopper chute which provides a convenient place to stick some additional weight, the wagon feeling just a little light.
With the body removed, it’s a much easier task to remove the buffers and drawhooks and also a good opportunity to sand down the noticeable gap/lip on the body ends.
I’ll give these a bit of fine filler yet before repaint commences.
