Cheers,

In 1923, the Railway Clearing House recommended that side sheeting (the planks you refer to) for a standard 12ton mineral wagon should be two and three-eighths inches thick, but could be as much as two and seven-eighths inches thick if desired. In 4mm scale, three inches equates to 1mm, so Ryman's .9mm thick mountboard, as recommended above by Jim, should be about right as it is just under three inches.

(Reference source: Diagram on page 58, British Goods Wagons by Essery, Rowland & Steel, published by David & Charles, 1970).

Hello Terry,

That's great fair play to you, its also means that the 1.6 mm mount board I'm using for my wagons is within half a Gnats knacker as well :-)

Regards - Jim

There are a load of diagram books on this site that may be of use for wagon building etc.
