Ex Parkwood Models kit.  Standard small and large general goods containers, between 1949 and 1959 BR built nearly 5000 of the type A containers and over 10000 of the type BD containers, so they were very common. The Assembly of the kit is very simple.  They were made obsolete by more modern designs that locked onto the wagon, though some survived in use until the late 70s.

These containers were painted maroon with cream lettering until 1956, then crimson with cream lettering until 1960, and then bauxite with white lettering.
