For a change here is a quick post on some new wagons I’ve been working on. Last week I was after on my hols and took some simple kits and tools with me. They are all Mountblue models kits.
These came complete with the chassis. The flat car came with trucks and couplers. I have used Kadee trucks and couplers. i found the instructions clear and easy to follow. the prts were easy to remove and required very little clean up.
I know it is normal to paint these before they are built but as said at the start I was on my hols. I will use paints so any glue on the body shouldnt be a problem. I was very careful to ensure any glue on finished surfaces was removed before it dried.
I still have detail to add to all these cars, but this will be painted before adding and the car bodies painted.
I enjoyed building these in the evenings when away. I have 6 more to build that require the Bachmann 18 foot chassis and a Drovers Caboose to build.
