Carriage Modelling Made Easy

Regular price £25.00

Author David Jenkinson presents a well illustrated and very detailed discussion about building carriages using plasticard (and wood mouldings for roofs). Although many of the detailed examples are for 7mm and 10mm scale, the author has made many carriages in 4mm finescale too, so he is able to illustrate the process and how it applies to the smaller scales as well.

A truly inspirational work from the late David Jenkinson whose contributions to the model railway hobby are sadly missed. The book amplifies the series of articles written in Railway Modeller in 1979, and does so in much greater detail and with many more fine line illustrations and detailed photographs. As an alternative to building an expensive etched brass kit, Jenkinson provides a well balanced case for developing one's own skills so that many esoteric or one-off prototypes can be modelled with considerable fidelity to prototype.

Softback, 136 pages, black & white photographs, drawings
