I am currently trying to create some virtual models of the full brake coaches covered by Diagrams 372 to 378 - typically 50ft long but of varying width and roof profile. I have managed to work out some estimated dimensions, although I doubt their accuracy. Some have ogees and some do not, and my question is did all of these coaches have windows in one of the ends? I note that in David Jenkinson's book Plate 117 shows some in the end of Diagram 375! I am also using Philip Millard's book and his excellent sets of data, for which I am very grateful.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

In the absence of any suggestions I'll have to make some sort of educated guess based on the picture mentioned in the previous post; i.e. I'll assume that all full brakes had a pair of windows in one end.

Your assumption is not correct. Arc-roof brakes had no end windows. High-roof vans with end brake had end windows in that end only.

Thanks for the reply, which I'll duly take into account. Thankfully I hadn't progressed the full brakes as quickly as I had hoped!
