Skips With Everything

Guys

As many of you that know me will be aware, I have a great love of skips, skip chassis, and the vast array of wagons that were built on them.

We have not offered a 7/8ths scale Continental pattern skip chassis for a number of years, that will now be rectified as, with the advantages of the latest pressure casting technology we are please to announce the release of our new range of budget skip variants.

The first release will be a separate chassis, in resin, the kit will feature re-gaugable Binnie wheelsets, whitemetal axleboxes and Pop rivet coupling pins, priced at £18.00

I have designed the chassis to be able to accept aftermarket upgrades in the form of Talisman 78-017 skip couplers and both Tru-scale metal wheelsets from The Train Department or our own finely detailed wheelsets in iron filled resin.

I have the first four body variants on the workbench being painted for the instruction sheets, Factory flat, Factory bulkhead flat, plus reworked versions of the Guards van and Box van from the budget range. I will post images prices and details later this week.

To celebrate the release of our new skip chassis I will be running a competition for the best, and weirdest wagon built on it.

The competition will run until the Exeter show 27th of October 2018

Entry is open to all, by submitting three jpeg images

The final decision will be mine alone

The winner’s prize will be a custom animated and painted 7/8ths figure based on something from our range both past and present.

I hope this will inspire some of you to try your hand, there are some fascinating prototypes to spur your imagination.
