SM32 (16mm) Type C wagon

This wagon is a laser cut kit and took several coats of paint to complete – of all the WW1 wagons this was one of the rarest types – although finished it may well be weathered slightly more to blend the body and the bogies a bit better. Again photo’s taken on the O gauge photo plank. It is also a bit lightweight and extra weight will need to be added either through a load or underneath!

Class R wagons – weathered & loaded

I have now made bales of ‘fodder’ for the type R wagons. Fodder was an overall term for the horses feed, it could be made up of various plants. I have made hay bales cut from grass land. These were made from a softwood base with glued on chopped coloured hair and bound by wire. Not perfect – but they look the part.

Three Class R wagons for 4000 yards

Here are three class R wagons, used mainly for provisions etc. There were several different types made for the WD, but also quite a lot of commandeered ones from various sources. These three are generic, but are the correct length etc.

I purchased some 7mm hay bales and hope to set up a production line making some in 16mm – must feed the horses! They are varnished, but not weathered yet!

Also pleased to say we are now up to four Exhibitions in 2019 with the layout.
