Just moved this from an old thread. NIR Ballast Wagon.

Built from Cambrian Models kit C67 SR 40T Hopper Wagon, SSM Transfers, Ballast is from Woodland Scenics Med Grey. The paint is Humbrol Insignia yellow 154. Not a bad kit to build but some tricky bits on the two ends.

The second shot could be mistaken for a prototype shot. Great modelling

Superb work Popeye - as set me thinking about how to do a 7mm version. interesting thing about wagon kits is that the expensive bits are the running gear, buffers etc, while the bodywork is about a fiver at the most. So, what brakevan did you start with? Am hoping could do the same with a Slaters or Parkside kit.

Made using a Lima O gauge brake van chassis, the rest is plastic card

I have been building a brass Park Royal Coach from Worsley Works over the past year. The Bogies used are from Bachmann 36-008A so are the Buffers.Torpedo ventilators are from MJT 2940. The roof was made from plastic with a frame of curved ribbs covered with very thin plasticard. The seating was also made with plastic.
