Parkside RCH 5 Plank 12 Ton Wagon - 2

Basic construction is done on the Parkside wagon. I've fitted the Bachmann NEM pocket mounts - took more fiddling than I expected to get the height right. I ended up carving off the vertical projections off the mounts and then cutting back the underframe bracing until the correct height was achieved - silly me for expecting that they would just fit blink.gif

 

Here's a pic of the underframe prior to priming

and here's it replendant in red oxide primer

I might keep it this colour as it's going to be well weathered anyway. Nice kit to build, but you do need something like EMA Plastic Weld to stick the black ABS bits, luckily that's what I bought last and it is better than the Modelmaster stuff I used previously biggrin.gif

 

Now, I'm going to need some white lettering transfers, I've already posted a question here for advice on what is best to use. Anyone got a couple of Bachmann NEM pockets spare?
