All-new MGR hopper for 'OO'
Cavalex Models is producing a brand new 'OO' gauge model of the HAA merry-go-round hopper wagon for 'OO' gauge in a collaboration with Trains4U and KMS Railtech. The freshly tooled wagon is planned for release in the third quarter of 2021 and will cover the HAA and HFA variants.
At the announcement of the project, Cavalex revealed that the new HAA is already at the tooling stage of development and that it will follow the standards set by its PGA and BBA/BLA wagons for 'OO'. Highlights include a detailed underframe, a zinc alloy chassis, 26mm axles to allow 'EM' and 'P4' gauge wheelsets to be dropped in, NEM coupling pockets and coupling blanks and sprung buffers.
The HAA will be offered in triple packs in original Railfreight silver with red strapping, Railfreight Coal Sector silver with yellow strapping and EWS livery with maroon strapping. In addition, the hooded HFA version of the HAA will also be available in triple packs finished in Railfreight Coal Sector with yellow strapping and EWS livery with maroon strapping. Each triple pack will feature individually numbered wagons.
In its press release Cavalex indicated that more variants from the HAA family will follow.
The triple packs are available to pre-order exclusively via Trains4U and KMS Railtech. The price per triple pack is £89.95.
