Ryanontherails Workbench
« on: July 04, 2018, 02:13:21 am »
Hi everyone and welcome to my topic / blog about whatís happening on my little workbench. I do have another topic over on layout construction where you can follow my progress on the building of the layout. But I wanted to keep another topic open here with all the other jobs that Iíve got going on. Iím sure I will have much more to post in the future.

For my first post over here, tonight after a awful day at work I came home and relaxed by building 1 of the 4 Slimrails OTA wagons that will feature on my Scottish themed layout. Have to say that the kit is very well made indeed and easy to assemble, comes in only a few seperate parts. Only part Iím having to adjust is the buffer to fit in the holes of the wagon, a quick run of a little drill bit will sort that out tho. Itís got great detail and Iím lookong forward to putting together the other 3 and now considering getting a couple more for the layout. Think a nice rake of 6, 7 or maybe even 8 OTA wagons behind a 37 would look damn good! I think with the next 3 I will paint all the parts first before assembly as it will be easier that when assembled. Posted a couple of pics of the first build of the wagons. 





Coming in a later post will be a detailed look at how Iíve modified the rapido coupling into a semi-permanent magnetic coupling, that will come the next time I do a batch of modifications to some stock so I can get some step by step photos. I discovered this method after getting fed up with them Dapol Mk3 couplings dropping down all the time so needed to find a simple cheap fix.

Happy modelling
Ryan.

I like the look of their OTA Timber Wagons
