Recommended Posts

This evening ive carefuly "cut up" one of my Bachmann nuclear flask wagons,

plan is I want to be able to load and unload from open flask wagon.

Plus ive never seen anyone model this or make the load which houses the spent fuel rods for waste storage...

Im planning tp cover both here in scratch build..

Layout is coming along very well. See you have made CCTV camera posts. Just checked some of my pics (Lydd 2007) hadn't noticed them. Yes, they will add some height.

Cheers.

The flask I have is a un-named white metal kits that a mate let me have, he said there was too much work in it for him regarding removal of flash and the shape. I took it on and I think it's about right apart from some filler.

Problem is you never see a dirty flask, always seem to be spotless and very white.
