These popular card kits supplement our range of etched kits and widen the scope for modellers of Irish railways in both broad and narrow gauges, depicting as they do many of the fascinating curiosities of Irish railway history. Whist they are initially intended for static display, modellers are ingenious and we've seen many examples motorised and working on their owners' layouts.
Multi-laminated card rolling stock bodies are extremely strong and durable in service and amply repay the time spent on their construction. For best results, always use a sharp scalpel, changing the blade as soon as it shows signs of becoming blunt - expect to use up two or three blades during the course of building each body. Reinforce parts as indicated with stiff card as construction proceeds. Strengthen the body sides and ends internally with 1mm artists mount board - offcuts of this material can often be obtained from your local picture-framing shop.
