The construction was essentially the same as the open wagon I made. The fake sole bars, floor, sides, hinges and rivet details were made from plastic card and rod. The main difference is these wagons are built on the Peco N Gauge 15ft Wagon Chassis (NR122) and are slightly longer than the open wagon.
The two wagons were made to resemble one another, with small differences. The one on the right is slightly longer (52mm compared to 48mm), has more hinges on the side planks and has shorter end stanchions.
I designed the wagons so they would accommodate the Skytrex Model Railways O scale packing cases and crates. This has worked out well and the loads look good in the wagons.
Both wagons are painted in manufacturer’s photographic grey (also known as primer 🙂 ) because I still haven’t decided what colour to paint my O9 stock !
