Arriving soon a new vserion of the T van

Silly me, I forgot to mention that the wooden bodied T van is due from overseas from the 3D printers and will be assessed and then cleaned up prior to casting and put into kits with an Aust-N-Rail underframe.
Advertising decals will also be available as a separate item. These include Vima, William Angliss meats and Tancred Bros.

Roundhouse and SAR

Finally I have completed the N scale VR 3 stall roundhouse.  The instructions are being proof read for any grammatical errors on my behalf by a fellow modeller.  I finally finishing some big projects before I make a start on some SAR wagons as promised along with the silo kit.

The roundhouse kit features removal roof N scale corrugated iron roof, VR trusses, concrete or brick floors, steel crew lockers, vented roof, 2 ways of positioning of windows (fixed or leaning), detachable store house, detachable sand house, extra floor to raise the footprint for taller locos or built up track.  Extra roofing in case you want to expand it to 6, 9 etc. stalls plus the buyers of 2 or more kits get the extra trusses to continue their roof build.

Provision has been made for lighting in the roof space as well.  Basic history notes and paint advice are given.  It is recommended that you assemble the kit with an Ultra Fine Glue adaptor ($4.00) to make things easier.  Final price on the roundhouse is being worked out as I cut all the parts and start assembling the kits.

Availability for this limited run kit will be towards the 3rd week in Feb 2016.

Happy modelling.
