COMING VERY SOON: Pre-orders gladly
(On18) GAS-MECHANICAL kit.
Following on from, and
spurred-on by the success of our recently released O-9 DIESEL kit, this
is once again designed to fit a KATO 11-103 0-4-0 donor mechanism.
Note: we will only be selling the kit completewith the required KATO
mechanism. Comprising high quality pro-moulded resinparts designed for
simple adhesive assembly using thin-type superglue. Novice builders
find these kits a cinch and experts will appreciate the level of
detail. Kit includes everything including the driver figure. We decided
it would be a good idea to also include the same overall corrugated
roof from our earlier O-9 DIESEL to help establish the 'family' house
style. To help provide the modeller with options, the overall roof may
easily cut-down to provide a short roof over the cab area only. Oh, and
it's worth pointing out the void inside the model's hood will
easily accommodate a DCC decoder.
The O-9 GAS-MECHANICAL will
cost £36. The KATO 11-103 mech costs £19.
UK postage and packing costs £4. Overseas airmail costs £8.
asking if we'll make O-9 rolling stock for our O-9 locos to haul, so
there are currently SEVEN different O-9 wagon kits in preparation.
Think similar wagons to our On30 SELECT-a-CARs but only smaller! We've
posted a photo showing the basic Flat Wagon - and mostly the rest of
the wagons have been designed to use this same basic underframe -
with the exception of the side-tippers. From the outset our O-9 wagons
were designed to accept N-scale coupler standards so they feature
compatible coupler heights to our O-9 locos. Not much point
otherwise... We fitted Microtrains N-scale knuckle type couplers
to our O-9 locos and wagons but any similar couplers will work. Our O-9
wagons feature a cast metal mainframe for low-down weight and to help
them track properly. Bodies and sideframes are pro-moulded resin.
You want fine details? Even wood grain and nail holes are all present
and correct... The seven different wagons currently underway (with
hopefully more to follow) comprise the following types: FLAT WAGON,
STAKE WAGON, BULKHEAD WAGON, OPEN WAGON, TANK WAGON, Pair of BOLSTER
LOG) WAGONS, SIDE TIPPER WAGON. Like our On30 SELECT-a-CARs, minimum
order will be 3 x Wagons. These can comprise three of the same wagons
or three different ones. Price and release date TBA.
SOON: Pre-reservations gladly accepted
