36' Flat Car

Postby MacG » Mon Sep 09, 2019 1:15 pm

I've been approached with an offer I don't want to withhold from you.

The manufacturer KARSEI has a model of an old 36ft war flat car. This model could be produced without buffers and Tillig couplers. The rest corresponds to the current TP wagon.

Here is a picture of a 36' flat car

and here a picture of the current model (European TP wagon).

It shall be a small batch run. I have added a poll to check the interest and if a pad printing would be necessary. The price for an RTR model will probably be less than 35€ (without tax 30€).

Would a brass overlay for the stake pockets be possible?

Probably it is possible to make the single stake pockets as additional parts. But I think Karsei doesn't do this. Perhaps will fit the stake pocket band from Lok-n-Roll flat car kit or we create some brass parts.
