James carriages

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

James carriages

Postby rowanb » Mon Jan 23, 2017 6:26 am

Being in dire need of some red carriages to run behind James, I decided to 'kit bash' a couple of G-scale Bachmann gons using OO rolling stock as a guide. The large scale gons were purchased at a large discount from my favorite spot to buy such items (in Texas).
I decided I would like a standard carriage, and a combined pass/horse car.
First step was to muck eeee mock-up to check for sizing/look etc.
Then today being 35 degrees (Celsius), was a good day to start the designs, cut out from matt-card and trial fit on the gons.
The gons have been left intact except for the handrails etc which will likely come in handy later...
