I know I have a lot of unfinished kits in the cupboard, but when I saw these wagons on social media, I was gripped and just had to know a bit more about them. These model wagons really do demonstrate that you can make almost anything if you have a bit (well a lot!) of know-how and the right equipment.
And so after quite a bit of work by Rob Law, I am now the proud owner of three (3d printed) bogie ballast hopper wagons. These Seacow/Sealion wagons are likely to be finished in an olive green livery and weathered to a work stained condition. I am aware that Railtec produce transfers for these wagons. They will also run loaded with ballast for added interest.
All the other detailing parts have been supplied and these will be added after the main body has been painted. Sprat and Winkle couplings will also be added to enable them to use the already installed under track magnets.
Kelvin is keen for me to get back to the DMU project so it might be a while before the seacow wagons are completed!
