Load it up !
« on: June 20, 2022, 09:25:28 AM »
A couple of my recent finishes are cargo carriers but I'm rapidly running out of suitable crates, boxes etc - sadly Heller don't do their excellent HO/OO railway accessory set any more.  Still have plenty of jerry-cans & sand-bags but they aren't very inspiring loads :( 

Finally finished the old Nitto M8a1 - with a bit of trouble I replaced the toy drive-sprocket & crude track with items from a wrecked M-48 tank.  Have a little more work to do with some AFV Club artillery shells on pallets but I have to wait until I have the patience to not stuff them up.

Got the AFV Club M-548 Tilly but lost interest in it after cutting the driver's door open.  Finally got around to finishing it - fitted a raised floor & loaded it up.

Currently working on the Italeri DUKW ...

Nice to see the M8 HST and the M548 TLC finished and ready to haul stuff.  :smiley:

Try Tichy Train Group for HO and O (1/48) scale stuff like boxes and barrels.

Good job on both! That Nitto kit was a real disappointment; it's good to see a nice build of it. The M548 cargo looks good. You can always print out some boxes for cargo and fold them to shape.
