This is the last one, just in the nick of time! We’re just about to load up the van and set off for the ExCel.
We’ve been working on a 15mm version of our 6mm monorail scenery set for a while, in particular looking for an affordable way to represent the track – and we think we’ve cracked it at last.
We’ve hit on the idea of using narrow plastic cable trunking – remove the top and you’re left with a ‘U’ shaped channel which is flexible, easy to paint and is self-adhesive, making it a doddle to stick to a base. We sprayed ours with grey primer, then silver spray and gave it a black wash – job done! It’s available in the UK from Screwfix, Wickes and also online from eBay and Amazon. And it’s very inexpensive – just a few pounds for a 2 metre length. We’re planning to bring a few lengths with us on Saturday, cut down to 1m long so they’re easier to carry home on the train afterwards! We’ll do a full write-up after the panic of the show is over.
So we’ve made four resin carriages that fit this track – an engine, passenger carriage, flat car and an independent armed scout car. We hope to put together some package deals as well although they aren’t yet finalised.
B300-1130 – Monorail Engine – £10.00
B300-1131 – Passenger Carriage – £10.00
B300-1133 – Flat Car – £9.00
B300-1137 – Scout Car – £12.00
B300-1101 – Track (1m length) – £2.50
