WTL Water Gin Released

The water gin kit was released at the Epping Model Railway Clubs exhibition at Thornleigh. The prototype is a fairly modern gin, with a 2700Gal half-round tank on an 18'. 10'' wheelbase underframe, the same as an S-truck underframe.

 The kit consists of an etched brass underframe, with a cast resin tank and details in etched brass, cast brass (loss wax) and a number of other materials, KD 158 scale head whisker couplers, brass wire, instructions etc. It is modelled on an underframe with two gussets, and has the option of building it with or without the strengthened solebars.

The kit is available with either RP25-88 spoked wheels, or 4-hole disc wheels, and comes with decals to suit WTL 391, the gin assigned to Muswellbrook. We have also produced decals for generic numbers (in 9" stencil numbers) or L458 when it had been reassigned as a water oil carrier, following dieselisation.

The cost of the kits are $60 each plus $11.00 registered post. They can be ordered direct from us by emailing your details to andian.models@gmail.com . Please indicate wheel type when ordering.

Below is some photos showing a completed sample of the 'Muswellbrook' Gin and the kit contents. Note also the differences in the decals for each side and the incorrect spelling of 'EMTY'. All as per the prototype.
