Hi all
  I have been working on this project for a while a scratched
built CQFY container wagon with a mesh deck it still needs
some finishing touches.
The aluminium mesh to make the came from Gr decals and the brake wheels
shunters steps and air hoses came from Modeletch. It would be great if someone
made some modern wagon codeboards but I guess everything is going RTR these
days and not enough of a market anyway I will have to get some made up and
put some container locks on the wagon because I don't think i can bring myself to
cover up the mesh deck with a container or two.
Till next time
