Knightwing - Cargo crates, boxes etc
« on: July 02, 2022, 05:28:58 AM »
Forty years ago I bought a Heller HO/OO railway accessory.  Heller discontinued the kit but after several years of searching I found that Knightwing took it over. http://www.knightwing.co.uk

Despite being for HO/OO - or 1/72nd, most of it looked good for 1/48th & 1/35th.  I have been using these for a few years for 1/35th cargo in trucks and they’ve proved great.

Each sprue has 2 large crates, 5 small crates, 3 each large, small & little cable-reels, 10 flour sacks, 5 wood barrels, 6 small oil drums, 3 duckboards(?), 10 crates of bottles (which I use as 1/35th bullets in boxes) & 20 small rectangular shapes (which I use as small ammo boxes).

Knightwing warn that (due to a family death & Eastern production costs) they may not be able to continue so act now if you want them.  Search around for the best price & check how many sprues you get for your money – some are sold separately, some in double or triple packs.

Large crates are 20 x 18 & 14mm H
Small crates are 10mm square & 16mm H
Wood barrels are 10mm dia x 13mm H

Found these two suppliers.  Kit numbers are PM101 (single sprue), kit PM139 (double pack), PM108 (triple pack).
