Apologies for the picture quality,
I ve been building a ballast rake for the last few months consisting of two shapeways Ballast plough vans and 8 scratchbuild hopper wagons, luckily i was able to obtain plans from the trains operator so they'll be fairly accurate.
The shapeways vans are more of a scratch aid than an actual kit as its only the body that is complete but the chassis(modified hornby brakevan), decals, paints etc need to be sourced. The bodies as supplied need quite a bit of work as they need a good sanding and opening out around the windows, for the window grills i used some spare bachmann grills that i had to hand. The roof pod was cut out from plasticard.



The ballast wagons are a mixed bag, 4 are built onto dapol prestwin chassis and the other 4 are built onto much modified hornby chassis, the bodies are built up from plasticard and various bits of plastitruct. The various decals are sourced from a Irish supplier called Studio scale models.
