NZR BA Class & ZM Update

The weekend saw a few updates & new projects on the cooker, one of my fathers favorites the Ba Class. This model will feature 2 versions initially, Variation #1 has an AB style smoke box & will be the initial version ordered, followed by variation #2 with an extra sand dome directly in front of the cab.

NZ120 Scale

Variation #1

Variation #2

The ZM wagon has seen a few design improvements on the 1:120 scale version & naturally will flow onto the 1:64 version.


  1. Now you've done it. The B and Ba classes are my absolute favourite. Even though i plan to do one in 1:48 eventually, this is the thing that would finally pull me into 1:120 as well. Well done sir. Any info on what sort of chassis it might fit?

  2. Cheers, the Bachman 4-8-2 has the correct size wheels.

  3. I had not noticed the boiler front on version one. I've not seen any pictures of B and Ba's on the west coast with that sort of boiler front.
    Also, you could add the tender from version one to the front from version two as another variation.
