One of the tasks on my to do list is the construction of some wagons more resembling the prototype.
In my "old purchases" bag was the Ratio PW Wagon set. Four wagons just ripe for conversion. Conversion is a bit of a misnomer as all I've used is the solebar/W-iron moulding. The solebar was faced with a length of 3.2mm evergreen channel and the supports for the wagon floor were fettled from some 3.2mm H column as it looked better than the channelling in profile. The floor is some .5mm styrene sheet framed with some 3mm x .5mm strip.
To my mind it looks the part.
It sits a little high thanks to the fact that it is running on 12mm wheels, instead of a prototypically correct 10mm. Perhaps 10.5mm Romfords would help the improve the appearance. If I'm being hyper critical the styrene channel is .2mm too deep and the W-iron moulding too deep as well so perhaps 9mm wheels would be a better bet. However, when it it sits against my Bedford and Jesty locomotive it looks good.
Some weight is very much needed on the model. Though with the light, airy, open construction hiding that ballast will be difficult.
For a first effort at some Gn15 modeling in many, many years it's quite OK. This was just a test of methods and next time out I'll batch build them.
