BE Cattle Wagon

A post on the WA Facebook group regarding chopper couplers reminded me about this model.
Quite a while ago when I was 15-16 years old I scratch built this BE cattle wagon, complete with NCDA choppers. 
It was all styrene board by board construction, except the floor which was hand scribed both sides for the planks. 
It was intended to be entered into the AMRA modelling competition at the time; the full underbody detail precluded adding weight, as such it did not run very well and it is also looking a bit worse for wear now.

The shiny patches are super glue from repairs and the some of the brake gear and wheels have corroded.
