Wild Boar Models announce range of OO gauge wagon kits
10 April 2012
Wild Boar Models announce a new range of OO gauge wagon kits, produced by modern 3D printing techniques. These new wagons are mainly based on military prototypes and are supplied as a one piece wagon body requiring wheels, painting and transfers, with the customer able to fit a coupling of their choice.
These wagons are ideal for a first super detailing project such as fitting handbrake wheels, rivets and other finer details, without the added complexity of constructing the wagon body. All wagons are designed to take commercially available wheels with several wagons allowing wheel sets to drop into place. The wagon kits are produced on a made to order basis. Three wagons are now available:
WW2 Condition Warwell wagons, based on those built in 1942 for moving tanks and other
military equipment around the country, which lasted in a similar condition until being modified
in the 1970’s. (Takes Ratio 125 Diamond frame bogies)
LMS 30t Rail carrier, these were shortened Warwell wagons, converted to use as bolster
wagons mainly for carrying rail. (Takes Ratio 125 Diamond frame bogies)
WW2 Ramp wagons, these wagons had a removable wheel set to allow them to be
converted into ramps for loading tanks onto the warwells.
Several other wagon types are currently in development and should be available in the coming months, including: Warwells (post 2003), 80t Warwells, PFA container flats, Warflats, and WW1 style RECTANKS.
