Model Railway Handbook No.10: Thoroughly Modern Models 2 - Modern Wagons in 4mm
With the dramatic revival of railfreight traffic on our railways comes a corresponding surge in interest in modelling the modern freight wagon as a logical companion to the locomotive. Nigel Burkin has been documenting and modelling freight wagons for as long as he has studied the locomotive.
This guide has been compiled from years of research to offer detailed information about the prototype, modelling technique and projects which pull it all together. Many ready to run favourites get the treatment, whilst the surge in new kits for anything from a bogie to large and complex wagons, add an extra dimension. Advice on materials, tools, kits, base models, detailing and assembly methods is offered in a pragmatic menu style supported by photographs of the prototype, step by step modelling and finished models. An indispensable guide for the active modeller and enthusiast, beginner and expert alike; don’t let it stray far from the modelling table.
