Scratch Build of Rail Wagon 1/35 scale.

I received a pair of axles and wheels from LZ Models courtesy of Libor  that I married to a wooden and plastic frame that I copied from the Trumpeter gondola and made from timber and plastic.
In a magazine I saw a photo of an  old wagon that had been converted to carry explosives and that was my inspiration. This was just an exercise to see if 1/35 rolling stock could be built . Nothing serious just a bit of fun.  

This has to be one of the few 1/35 scratch built wagons around.

New Showcase for some Models

I have found a new home for some of my models by way of a glass panelled show case.  As we all know dust is a great problem so my BR 56 has a resting place for the time being. Some pictures of it now.
