16mm NG Workbench laser cut kits etc

I saw this in Phil’s Garden Rail temporary layout article and searched out the kit on eBay - seller ‘vwmonkeyblue’

It slots together beautifully, no fettling required, just pva glue for the bodywork. 

 

I cut the axles to length so I could line up the bearings.

I built it it as a few sub assemblies.

I liked the window surrounds in the GR article so I added them from card.

Primed, sanded and filled again

Basic paint on, now some detailing to do. The drive is only on one axle so you could add a chain drive but mine will only ever pull a wagon or two so I left it as one axle drive. The wheels and gear were pressed on using a G clamp.

Porton No1 ready to run although more detailing to do. The wagon kit is lovely and took just a couple of hours including painting!

Rowntree from the Smarties Mining Co started today with a full load, the driver blamed the lost load on rough track . . .

So the blue Hudson has been renamed Rowntree after the quarries parent company ;)

 

Then I succumbed to temptation to model another line too so I’ve got two skips and the battery mines loco from Phil Sharples. 

 

Jensen the workshop foreman is keeping quiet about the client but has sent over these shots of the wagons.

Close ;) but Flake is a much older 20’s mine, this one was only opened in 1960 :)
