Kits for Palethorpes Sausage Vans
« on: July 15, 2019, 06:16:03 PM »
Hi, just noticed that Cambridge Custom Transfers make Palethorpes transfers for sausage vans.  Can anyone suggest a kit that would be suitable for making up sausage vans, similar to the Hornby OO models?  I'd really like to make a small rake of these up.

Thanks,
John

Mill Lane Sidings used to do a kit for these.

I can't remember if they did kits for both 4-wheel and 6-wheel wagons but, in the case of the 6 wheeler, an NGS Stove 'R'chassis is required which I believe is no longer available.

Best regards,


Joe

The Mill Lane kit used flat pre-coloured printed acetate sides, so putting transfers over those doesn't make much sense. You could use the roof and ends which IIRC were cast metal and scratch-build new sides with full relief detail then use the transfers over that...
