Warbonnet posted a topic in NewsWe're delighted to announce that we will open the order book for the Tara Mines wagons this weekend at our range launch! The first run of models will see five packs of two wagons in the current red oxide scheme, giving you an authentic ten wagon train. The wagons promise to have a level of detail yet to be seen in 4mm, including rotating axle caps, kinematic couplings and a wealth of separately applied detail. We will be able to take orders at the event on Saturday and online. Prices will be €79.95 per pack. Excited? We are!
In April I bought a copy the IRRS booklet Great Northern Railway (Ireland) Carriage Diagrams Part 5 Non Passenger Stock. The booklet contains drawings of a number of GNR 4, 6 and bogie wagons. I saw a bogie parcel wagon in Desmond Coakham's book and thought that it would make a god model. However the book did not have any dimensions so I was delighted to get the IRRS booklet which had all the information I needed. In may I started to make a P1 parcel van mainly from plastic sheeting but enhanced with card and some brass tube. The only part I did not make was the bogies these are N gauge society kits. The following photos show roughly the progress in making the wagon. The chassis is made from mounting board. The bogies are attached by means of a small piece of brass tube glued into the mounting board. the board id raised above the wheels of the bogie by a washer which also provides a little weight. This view shows the side, the other side is the same. I put some generic boxes inside as I had glazed the windows but nothing can be seen inside when the roof is on As can be seen the windows are too small in this scale to see anything. For the louvres I tried scoring the plastic but with little success The roof made from card has been added together with details on the doors and chassis This view show one end, the other being the same The final stage was the painting and lettering. the following photos show the completed wagon. The lettering and numbering were done on the computer. I have given the wagon a worn look. MikeO
Can anyone advise me on the standard composition of the auto ballast wagons? From what I have seen they seem to be either : 1 powered unit and 5 standard units or 2 powered units (one each end) and 6 standard units. Is this the case? Also I believe Marksmodels are hoping to release the standard units separately to complete the sets.
