Hi guys, thought I'd show you what I've been working on, these are Parkside Dundas 7mm kits first is a GWR 20 Ton Goods Brake Van







 



Highly detailed underside which knowone will see.

Roof left off for painting gave me a chance to take this shot.

Few last details to do like handrails and lamp brackets but almost there.

The Second is a GWR 20 Ton Loco Coal Wagon this was a fairly simple kit to assemble done in an afternoon





The only thing to do to this is to paint, apply the transfers and fit Dingham couplings to it.

My next one to do is a Parkside Dundas Trestle Wagon and I've got a JLTRT Plywood Van Kit to assemble which have a one piece moulded van body, I'll let you know how I get on with that one.

They look like they make up into nicely detailed and sturdy models Nigels, do you think they are better than the OO versions

Yes Alan, because in 'O' you can get so much more detail in, like the brake van it has all the workings of the real thing (a labour of love but worth it).

Will go nicely behind my new Pannier tank from Lionheart Models.

When I get the trestles built I'll add some pictures of the Parkside Dundas Trestle Wagon, I'm doing at the moment.

Hi, sorry not posted for a day or two but here's the pictures of my trestle wagon as promised.










 

I have one more wagon kit to do a JLTRT plywood box van, then I'd like to get a cattle van possibly Parkside Dundas.

I've just got one big lot of painting to do as I've been building them but not painting. So once I masked I can do all at once with primer then set up the airbrush to do the different colours.

But it's tempting to leave that and get on with my new loco kit that I bought from Ebay an Eric Underhill 2021 0-6-0 saddle tank

 kit, it's got a brass chassis but the rest is Resin and Whitemetal for easy building.

Hi, similar in basic construction to the double bolster and plate wagons the trestle wagon had a special fixture to allow large plates to be conveyed held at an angle. This permitted sheet materials with sizes greater than the width of the wagon to be accomodated inside the normal maximum loading gauge and transported by ordinary goods trains.

Great stuff Nigel :thumbs  I could so easily be tempted to go 7mm scale,  main problem is lack of space (and funds).

Looking good, Nigel :cool:

I'd be interested in how the JLTRT van kit compares to the Parkside Dundas ones.

Hi Julian, thought I'd show you how the JLTRT kits come when you get them rather than just showing you the finished item, so this will be sort of review.

The JLTRT plywood box BR van, includes a one piece polyurethane body parts, lost wax brass, nickel fittings and white metal components

Kit includes finescale wheels, buffers and couplings.

















Clean mouldings with no flash and the ability to assemble the underframe, paint it before adding the painted top doing away with the need to mask.

Thanks Nigel - very useful. Interesting that they've cast the whole body in resin. I must say it does look very sharp.

Good stuff Nigel and very interesting. Do you need to add ballast and if so what are you using?

Les.

Hi, well it's hollow not solid, I didn't explain and my pictures didn't show it, the walls of the van are just about 5mm thick.

This one should be heavy enough but the plastic ones I will probably use Liquid Lead.

Nigel:cool wink
