Osborn's Models GWR wagon kits
« on: July 20, 2019, 04:57:35 PM »
Afternoon NGF fraternity,

Has anybody out there built any of the Osborn's GWR N gauge wagon kits? If you have could you let me know what you thought of them please. I'm seriously thinking about the W3 and W5 cattle wagons.

Many thanks,

I've built the outside framed brake van and found the kit rather enjoyable. You have to be careful not to break any of the fiddly bits though.

[Edit] I posted pics when I did it, so here they are :)

I have made the fruit van; I chose the kit as a step up from putting together the Peco wagon kits. I thought the instructions were clear and it wasn’t difficult to put together. Overall an enjoyable experience. However, the small transfers are a challenge.
