Both the wooden C (L above) and steel rebuild Cs (R above) were scratchbuilt in styrene utililsing Model Etch W irons/axlebox & spring assemblies and mostly styrene for remaining chassis detailing. Couplings are Roco Bosna.
The steel HOn3.5 Cs (L above) prior to painting alongside a OOn3.5 version of the same wagon (R above) illustrates the different size and attributes of the two scales.
Built using Steam Era Model's kit of the Victorian U van as body basis, it is as yet unpainted as I need to build up a decal sheet for SAR ng stock. Styrene modifications/adds are in white, chassis is a modified (extending mostly) Parkside Dundas T&D chassis kit. Coupling is Rococ Bosna, using up remaining stock.
Welcome - Some Australian 3'6" Railway Modelling in HOn3.5
Welcome - this site canvasses some of my modelling of Australian 3'6" gauge railways in HOn3.5. Most work is intended to be on railways in South Australia whether Government or Private, with some Tasmanian stock also.
My models are in HO scale (3.5 mm/foot) on 12mm gauge track - this combination (HOn3.5) has been chosen for its' fidelity to 3'6" gauge. HOn3.5 is a "modeller's scale" with no commercially available RTR rollingstock for South Australia or Tasmania. Everything here then is hand built.
