NZ120 Silver Fern RM & Ud (Well) wagon




NZR Silver Fern

A test print has been ordered in Frosted Detail, not available in FUD due to sheer size of model in 1:120 scale.. Will wait for a test print with great interest! 
The under grubbins will be made available after a test arrives, still unsure how to tackle this as with all the boxes the price of the model tends to shoot skyward. Will make the under-grubbins available as a separate item.. Perhaps a clip on job? still not sure!

This model will replace my scratch build attempt.. 


Designed to be fitted with 2mm brass bearings & wheels inserted.

Power Bogie side frames, designed to attach to a single bogie using a chassis of SD-7 with the other power bogie removed. If you use a lifelike you wont see the motor through the windows.

Showing bogies, Printed inside the body to prevent handling damage.

Ud Class, Well wagon of 1940
This model is a must have for any nz120 Layout, Requires 6 Wheels per wagon, 3 per bogie. Available from trackgangproducts.co.nz

Hooks and rivets!
Bogies need removing from body, 4 1mm struts connecting.

  2. Cheers!, Within a week from now, after the design is proven to be printable. Somewhere close to $115USD in 1:120 scale.
