N scale 'Shark'
The photograph shows a pre-production sample of a new N scale kit writes Andy Calvert. The 'Shark' kit breaks new ground as it is the result of private sponsorship from within the membership of the N Gauge Society.
Members accepted that such a kit, whilst highly desirable, was never going to be sufficiently popular to justify investment from the Society Wagon Project and therefore decided to go it alone. The main component of the 'Shark', the van body, has already been produced in plastic from the excellent tooling work of Parkside Dundas. All that remains to complete the kit are the ballast ploughs, plough operating handwheels and the plough shields. Release date is likely to be towards the end of the year - a nice Christmas present for someone?
