This is the next model i am working on. After seeing other Wickham trolley models on the Market for 4 mm i was annoyed to see that they all had the side curtains down and the windows blacked in. So i am creating a kit for a Wickham Type 27A Mk3 at the moment that:- a: is open and has proper see through windows and b: runs as well on its own without the need for a trailer etc. Anyhow this is the prototype without the chassis so far. I also have a motor now that will fit inside the engine casing and cannot be seen from outside the Vehicle - Yes its an extremely small motor - but it will run on OO gauge track at 12V!!
Here is a teaser Picture anyhow.......................................
Are you planning to make the chassis available or at least show us how you did it? I have an N Brass Locomotives kit (also for the Type 27) which I was going to push with a Bachmann Gandy Dancer but I haven't managed to get it to run freely enough as yet. If I can motorise it that would be a much better idea.
I have seen a web page where someone did it but it all looked much too micro for me.
It will be available as a full kit later this year for about 50 pound all included ( provisional price at present ) it will be a brass chassis with a plastic injection moulded top and a noverl idea for adding weight that i dont think anyone will suspect !!
