Thanks for the kind and encouraging comments guys. Feeling somewhat humbled given the quarter from whence the comments came. While waiting for decals and some detailing parts for the GSV . . .
Next project are some 20ft skeletal container wagon kits for my C-Rail 20ft Bell containers. 3D bogies with some white metal detailing bits. Surfaces being 3D a little 'toothpaste' but judicious primer will help that and you won't even notice when they are under the Bell's.
The 3D bodies have NEM coupling pockets at the correct height. Bodies are dead square and flat with no warping. I added two small vertical container pins to each wagon to keep the containers in place. I have four standard holes in the base of my C-Rail containers so they can be mounted on the wagon in either direction and I will have the option to run with or without the containers.
Primed in new'ish spray booth as it's too cold and damp to air brush outside in the shed this time of year. Will spray these bauxite later. The kits were supplied by IFM and I'm very happy with them, quick and easy to assemble with minimal fettling, filing or tidy up needed. The kits came with wheels, couplings and transfers.
