Following on from Geoff Kents' series, in this book John Hayes presents a modelling guide to the common coal wagon.
Many thousands of company and private owned wagons have served on Britains railways. Built by hundreds of builders and maintained by hundreds of repair depots their design, although laid down in specification by the RCH was almsot as varied as their liveries! John deals with structural and detail differences, showing how a more accurate model can be constructed of a specific wagon. He then provides an excellent guide to the lettering and weathering of your wagons, using transfers andÂ hand painting to create a realistic replica of a real wagon at work.
This book covers box vans, both general purpose and special traffic vehicles and tank wagons of many different types and designs. Over 160 pages of useful project ideas and practical demonstrations described and illustrated.
This series is recommended for 4mm scale wagon builders, helping you build a distinctive and unique model from a plastic kit, then progressing to kit bashing and straightforward scratch building projects to model specific prototypes.
