Workbench: RT Models Contractor's tipper wagon

On the workbench; an RT Models Contractor's tipper wagon kit. The white metal wagon is seen here before finishing and painting. For this photo the wheels will are borrowed from another wagon, the still to be bought split spoke wheels will have the pin points ground off flat. Note the 16 tonner it's parked next to for size comparison.

Full build review in Model Rail magazine shortly. www.model-rail.co.uk

  1. I'll be interested to see how you paint this Chris as these wagons were usually just bare wood. I've got three to build myself so I'm looking for ideas to steal. Full marks to Robert (Mr Rt Models) for bringing out such an unusual and interesting kit. Should go nicely with his Manning Wardle loco kits.
