Author Topic: Forestry inspection motor trolley in 1/35th  (Read 3527 times)

Dug out of the reject box with determination to finish it !! a small critter based on an article in the Narrow Gauge & Industrial Review (issue no' 20)
My version of a Fowler Narrow gauge Forestry inspection car - scale is 1/35th mainly built from plastic card and Evergreen styrene strip and sections
the wheels run in brass bearings with the intention of a small motorised unit to "push it along" the engine ( a 2 cylinder diesel) is a trial fit at the moment with a bit of further detailing required - it did have the roof on at one point but in a moment of madness ! thought how do I paint the inside !

That's one I haven't seen before. Glad you're working on it again, looks like a fun critter.

It looks irretrievably hideous, of course, but I can't imagine why you tossed it in a box and left it unfinished. I suspect the completed model will be most satisfactory. -- Russ

Barney, you come up with some really great ideas, wonderfully executed as always. Are you going back to 1/35th then?

With all those kits available you're almost tempting me back to 1/35th scale

great job there Barney did you make the couplers yourself ?With the couplers with so many around this style is definately the best for 1/35 narrow gauge,
