What is the prototype model and text on this model

Who can help me out?  What is the model of the prototype?  On which railroads did it run?  And what would be the proper text on the sides to use?

I would appreciate the help.

Looks WD/MoD to me, and YES, probably of US origin, but one war earlier.

My father had a US Military Railway Engineering book of the era full of cars like this, but the book is lost in the mish-mash. A check of the Magor and ACF trench cars show some SIMILAR, but nothing exact....

Would be suited for the new WD Baldwin by Accucraft tho!


edit, cut and paste link above, it won't direct on this "improved" site.....
The 40' bit is long for MoD/WD use, assuming that this thing is 45mm gauge, maybe it is a 7/8" model?

Hi All,

The exception is the much illustrated Baldwin 4 6 0 tank, (by Accucraft) the full size 12" to 1 foot versions now being re-built, with one having been resurrected already, and the Welsh Highland have another! .

One can hope that the 4-6-0T Hunslet and 2-6-2T Alcos are not far behind?  Dunno......
