I have some drawings that were published in the Model Railway Constructor but unfortunately I they aren't dated. J.H.Russells books on Great Western Coaches are a font of information and invaluable for constructing these coaches. The details on bogie wheelbases and numbering sequences save an awful lot of research and are well worth the price.
Between these published details the positioning of
roof vents etc are made so much easier.
Seen in the poorly focused lower picture is the footsteps soldered into position. Alan at Worsley Works ha sproduced some fine etches for these, no cleaning up at all was needed, they just slotted into place. If only everything was this easy!
