NGS Kit 23
« on: May 28, 2019, 04:51:40 PM »
So, having come across some PO decals from a previous wagon building purge I decided that I ought to use these and splashed out on a couple of the NGS Kit 23. This kit builds up into an RCH PO coal wagon on a 9ft chassis and has side, end, and bottom doors. Ideal for my time period.

Photo #1 shows the bodies as build and ready for the paint shop. No chassis, or buffer heads yet. I opted to go for the PO version as the kit can also make the LMS built version of which some 30,000 were built from 1923 onwards.

Photo #2 shows the bodies post painting; LIDL matt black car aerosol. with the chassis and wheels fitted. I've still to fit the couplings and buffer heads and apply the decals. That'll be taken care of when I get home at the weekend.

Not bad at all. The body is pretty nicely detailed, and I've always preferred the look of the 9ft chassis to the 10ft versions.

Well, here we are then. Another two PO coal wagons join the roster. About an hours work to finish them off with buffers and decals. A quick coat of my sons Citadel varnish and hey presto (must get myself some of that stuff).

Not at all bad. Now you just need some coal dust and steam soot over those lovely white letters.

...and perhaps some matte varnish. They look a tad shiny in some areas.

The Citadel varnish is a matt varnish. And yeah, I know they need a few minor touches but that will have to wait until the weekend again when I'm back home.

I use the Citadel varnish too - if you waft it lightly over a model from about 18" away it will give a matt effect. If you wet the model with the varnish, it will dry as an 'egg-shell' finish, which is good for ex-works locos, etc.
