This a brief review of new Products available in 3mm scale
New Society Products
At last after about 10 years of requests the we have finally managed to source 14.2 Flexible track it will come as a sprue which has 2 strips of 6 sleepers each side and willallow the Society finescale rail to be threaded on. This will we hope satisfy the demand and we have now added loose chairs to enable points and indeed plain track to any gauge to be produced (Chair Sprue not shown)
This shows a section of track and a half of one of the Sprues
We have now introduced a 13.5mm version of the track. This is for members who have decided to model to a 13.5mm gauge. This has advantages especially when extra clearance is required for locos with outside valve gear. It is not illustrated as it is visually identical to the 14.2 track which is illustrated
The society have introduced a further wagon, funded by a bequest from John Fisher who was a much respected elder member of the Society who had a lifelong love of all things Great Western, as a memorial we will be producing 3 wagons in his honour, the second of these is a GW Felix Pole open wagon. This wagon is plastic made for us by Parkside using a standard Society underframe and can be fitted with both standard or finescale wheels.
GW MICA van produced with the last of the bequest from John Fisher, we hope that he would be proud.
You will note that we do not as yet have the red GW transfers we are working on that
The Society have introduced the first of what will be a range of standard wheels to suite the 12mm gauge modeller. The first one is 15mm it has 15 spokes with 2.75mm crankthrow, is to RP25/79 profile and is a pushfit onto a square ended axle to give a self quartering wheelset
The range has now been extended to include 12mm, 13.5mm 18mm and 19.5mm driving wheels and 9mm,10.5mm and 12mm Bogie and Tender wheels
