SAR C & Cs wagons

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.
