Only slightly off topic, but I just happened on this video of a US Warflat train. Makes me a bit envious of their structure gauge. And what a huge range of vehicles.

Looking good

I'll have to hide these from my sons or they'll be pestering for me to expand their space for a military depot.   (all hypothetical at the moment as they have as much as they like of no space at all.)

All,

The NGS development team have recently received a test shot of the Post 76 Warflat wagon. The team have identified some areas requiring work and this has been specified to the toolers.

Currently the underfloor weight is being mastered by Bernard Taylor of TPM, while the etch artwork for the small detail parts is being drawn up.

These wagons are designed to complement the small range of military vehicles commissioned by the NGS from PG Models, the first two of which - the life extended Scimitar light tank and Saxon APC - are already available, to members only of course, from the shop.

news from https://groups.io/g/ngs/messages

Tanks for the orders. #ShopNews
From: Adrian (NGS Shop Manager)
Date: Sat, 05 Aug 2017 15:32:11 BST

The sale of the new military vehicle kits has gone exceedingly well, with the stock of Scimitar Light Tanks (NGSV0001) now in single figures and the Saxon APC (NGSV0002) fast approaching. I’ll look into a possible restock of these with the manufacturer. However we are expecting two other variants along later this year (NGSV0003 - Humber Pig Armoured Car Military Vehicle and NGSV0004 -  BV206-3 Amphibious Vehicle).

A bit off topic but since you asked the following is on one of the Revolution Warley reports

"These models are undergoing final running tests in Canada and are ready to go into production in late February – March 2018."

Hi Kirky,

The NGS kit for the modern Warflat (originally coded PFB, then KFB and now KFA) is still in development.

The plastic parts were tooled and samples received in the summer.  They were very nice but needed a couple of tiny amendments (the solebar was 0.5mm too deep IIRC.)

Unfortunately, this came at the time Parkside was sold to Peco, and the speed of that sale meant toolmaker at Parkside found himself without any of the tools he needed to complete the amendments.

The tool was given to me at Warley, and I am now in the process of arranging for someone else to complete these alterations.

Once that is done, and revised and correct samples are received, I can complete the etch artwork and instructions and the model can go into production.

But I suspect it won't be available to buy for at least another 4-6 months.  This is frustrating but unfortunately has been beyond our control until recently.

If you wanted more info on the Revolution PFA/KFA container flat then pop a question in that thread and I will answer it if I can!

cheers

Ben A.

When Parkside was sold to Peco they should have taken on the outstanding tooling contracts from Parkside Dundas,
as I presume Peco will produce the moldings for the NGS when they are ready to use.

Hi Steve,

This was never mentioned to me!

Please ask your contact to get in touch with me I will send them the tool.

Many thanks!

Ben

Unfortunately I do not have any contacts any more, I was looking at trading arrangements with respect to take overs,
try Peco as they now have the equipment or Dundas.

Regards,
Steve.

Hi @Ben A
Thanks for the comprehensive answer.
I dont need any further info on the Revolution container flats, that is well documented and shared across these pages. As you are well aware, communication from Revolution Trains is exemplary  :D
However, I do need several of the KFA warflats which I guess differ considerably from the KFA container flat? Why they would use the same code is beyond my simplistic view of the world I'm afraid.
The reason I asked the question in the first place is that there is no mention of the warflat in the NGS shop, even as a forthcoming product, as far as I can see. I dont mind waiting, (this is something we are used to now in the N gauge world eg Dapol cl142)  but I do want to get pre orders in as I need several for my military train. Funnily enough, my future warflats already have their loads!

Thanks again
Kirky

No, not quite Paul. The clue is in the name - they're 'Warwells', this thread is about 'Warflats'.

And I believe the kit will be Kit number 55. See reply #1.
