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.
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.
