Product Description

The first Warflat wagons were built during WW1 and carried a maximum load of 45t. Those built during WW2 were barely distinguishable from a distance, but are of heavier construction (more rivets along the solebar, and an extra layer of plating under the fishbelly) and could carry 50t. A kit of the 50t version is (or has been) available from Parkwood Models, and more recently the N-gauge Society. This model is of the WW1 built version after acquisition by the railway companies, removal of the loading jacks under the bufferbeams (usually) and conversion to bolster wagons. The two frames represent subtly different designs, in the arrangement of lashing rings along the sides. Note the _tiny_ hole for wires on which to mount brake handwheels (I suggest Ultima brass ones, or the four-spoke ones in my Shapeways model) on opposite sides. The two floors have different arrangements of bolsters. Either floor can be paired with either frame, and of course either frame can be fitted to a floor from the original kit (with bit of filing to perfect the fit) plus the jacks if required, to make a WW1 Warflat. Combine with my Coil EG conversion floor and superstructure to make either into a steel coil carrier - but remember to remove the lashing rings. The cylindrical parts are to mount Graham Farish or N-gauge Society diamond frame bogies. Shorten the coupling supports on the bogies for closer coupling and a neater look. When gluing the cylinders to the mounting points on the underside of the floor, I get best results from this kind of fixing if I drill a hole right through them top to bottom, of 0.9mm diameter as this lets air and excess glue away from the join when pressing together. Try to miss the transverse hole for a retaining wire on the one for the N-gauge Society bogies, to avoid clogging it up if you put on too much glue. I should probably design in a hole, and probably add the jacks as well, though they will be prone to breakage.
