|And talking of H sections, that brings us on to our final new product of the night, the AX067-OO Red Oxide H Beams. Now we’ve listed these as OO scale as that’s what we’ve primarily designed them for, but they can work for any scale from N up to O and beyond. They’re basically a 3.5mm square H section in red oxide, which we’ve had specially made for our range, including having our own tooling made. If these prove popular, we have ideas for plenty more along the same lines as these if there’s enough demand.
They come in a pack of 5 strips, each 280mm long for just £2.95, and are made from extruded high impact polystyrene, or HIPS, so they’re compatible with many other plastic mouldings used in scratch-building. So you get 1.4m of H section in each pack, and it’s ideal for making wagon and lorry loads etc. I made the load above as a demo in no more than about 5 minutes by cutting a single 280mm length into 5 and gluing it into a stack using Deluxe Materials Plastic Magic.
We’ve got a couple of kits in mind for these, but if you fancy a pack for a scratch-building project or to make up some low cost loads for your wagons and vehicles, you can find it on our website here.
Still To Come…
This weekend we’ll be back to normal with a selection of videos from our favourite YouTubers. Iain will hopefully have stimple step by step tutorial on track painting and weathering, and I’ll be cracking on with more projects tomorrow. I’d like to tell you exactly what but the chances are it’ll all go to pear shaped if I do and my day will be really random and disorganised… So I won’t commit to anything other than just getting stuck in to stuff!
Right… Time to sign off for the night I think and read my book for a bit before bed… Might have a flick through the latest issue of BRM magazine too maybe.
Keep on Shunting!
Justin, Tina & Elizabeth
