Three 12t Vanwides, a VWV and two VEA.

Three 12t Vanwides, a VWV and two VEA.   All three are Parkside kits with buffers and draw hooks from Lanarkshire Model Supplies and brake leavers from Bill Bedford, VWV decals are mostly Modelmaster and VEA decals are mostly Railtec. I might weather the VWV and lightly weather the VEA with the Haz symbols as VEAs were in good condition in the early 1980s. I weighted these with an M10 nut held in place with a piece of sprue. Couplings are Bachmann short cranked on Parkside mounts.

Three Manky Wagons.

I recently completed these three wagons. Two BR 13ton medfit from Parkside Dundas kits, both with some additonal brake detailing, one with 51L axleboxes.

Paint is Precision on Halfords undercoat. Rust is Rust-it The third wagon is a Cambrian Dogfish with some additional detailing with brass wire for the

Four more Mineral Wagons completed

Four more mineral wagons completed this evening, all are Parkside Dundas kits with additional parts from 51L and transfers from Modelmaster. One diag 1-110 21 ton mineral, two 1978 rebuilt 21 ton mineral and one diag 1-115 24.5 ton mineral. I'm trying to achieve a 1970s early 1980s appearance, quite pleased with how these ones turned out.
