I have been commissioned :mutley:mutley:mutley:mutleyto build a couple of S KITS wagons for Chris, these are to say the least very complicated, but they do look as if they will make a really good couple of wagons when finished.

The kits contains a mixture of Polyurethane Resin, Etched Brass and White Metal castings, all the parts are really well detailed, with the white metal parts being some of the best that I have ever seen, but that where the praise stops, because the instructions are very poor for such a expensive kit, and after reading them a couple of times, I am not a lot further forward.







As you can see from the above photo's the parts are have been very well made, so to do these justice I need some help, well really I need some information, and photo's on these wagons before I can start the build.

The instructions from the kit advise looking at

Railway Modeller January 1991

British Railway Air Braked Stock Volume 1

Working Wagons Volume 3

Rail Express issue 100 September 2004


Or any other Information that anybody might have on the PBA "CLAY TIGER" Wagon, if you have any photo's, or can find any, this will be of a great help, I guess that Chris would like them modelled on the stock that ran from St Blazey, so again photo's of any from there would be great.

I don't have any of the above books or magazines, so the more that I can get my hands on the better, and without more detailed information, these wagons are going to be very hard to build, so any help will be greatly appreciated.


I have just remembered how I have got myself into this position, it is all down to Peter needing someone to build a wagon along side one weekend, Thanks Peter :thumbs

Wow, this looks interesting - I will be following this avidly!

The components do indeed look extremely good. It will just fall together right?

I was wondering, how does one get commissioned?

Wayne

PS: or more importantly, how do I commission you? :pathead

I think "commissioned" is a bit of a long bow, Wayne, as it implies payment.  I think this is more like "challenged" - not that Alan is "challenged" in any way (he hastened to add) - perhaps, "gauntlet throwing down."  :cool wink

Well I am glad it was not just me because I looked at them and had no idea what to do!

Owen, unfortunately that link has just about every type of clay wagon except the one we want!

Alan, I will find what I have and upload it.



One to be getting on with for now!

Ok lets deal with the comment  "challenged" I guessed you all thought I was challenged anyway, :roll: well I might be after this build, but I am sure that others on here have other name for me ;-)

Wayne

Commissioned

If anybody on this forum was to be commissioned it would be you for you stratch building of building.

P.S  But if you want some wagons built it seem's I'm your man:roll:

Owen

Thanks for the link, but as Chris said they seem to every other type of wagon, other than the one that I need.

Jeff

Straight forward, well we will see in the next couple of weeks, but I do like the Owens idea:mutley

Right back onto the research for the wagon, I have been looking through the Internet this morning and found this very good site if you are researching British wagons, "British rail wagons photographed by Paul Bartlett" I don't know if this site is in our index but it would be worth adding, as he seems to have photographed every wagon !!

http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/

And on this site I have found the following photo's, which will really help with the build, I guess that I could just print these images, but I am going to send him a email just to ask first

http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/c270358.html

But What I could really do with is a set of drawings, does anybody have any idea where I might get my hands on them ?

Amazing what we can unearth on here between us!  Some great links there.  I did look on Paul Bartlett's site but could not find them - you must have dug much deeper Alan.

Well now then, as this Forum caters for one and all scale i reckon if Chris has a N scale kit you should be commissioned to do that one. Only fair then the N scale guys will know of any problems with their version, :doublethumb.
