I take it the PBA is no longer available on Shapeways?

Stuart, do you want to state the case for the PBA as a future model from RevolutioN?

VDA Van - can't believe Bachmann haven't shrunk their OO version
OTA Timber wagon - available as a kit
PWA UKF Fertiliser bogie vans - 3D print available, and I've got one in the "to do" pile
PHV ICI Hopper wagons - 3D print available
PBA Tiger China Clay bogie wagons (possible link up with Kernow?)
JGA RMC Hopper wagons - RFS 1990 version
JHA ARC low track force bogie wagons
PHA Yeoman O&K aggregate wagons - would complement the N Soc ex TPM tippler kits
Holdall Norsk Hydro Ferrywagons
Continental VTG compressed gas bogie tank, to 1:148 scale!!
BOC Tanks
BBA Steel Wagon - Might Cavalex shrink theirs?

Hi all,

If all these became available I'd be skint for a long time!

Instilling a bit of discipline on myself leaves me with 4 or 5 'must have' choices from the list.

OTA Timber wagon
PWA UKF Fertiliser bogie vans
PBA Tiger China Clay bogie wagons
Holdall Norsk Hydro Ferrywagons
Continental VTG compressed gas bogie tank

Much as I love building kits - RTR for some of these is the way to go.

Chivers OTA - build it square and true - then watch it distort over time. Kit not readily available either.

Thanks
Phil H

I'd love a couple if they were made.  Not sure I've got the experience/knowledge to state the case for it though.

Kernow models own the tooling and design for OO PBA's, i would have thought they would be your best bet, as they're part way down the road already.
