After a protracted development which resulted in a dimensionally inaccurate model appearing, Flangeway’s revised ‘OO’ gauge 50ton ‘Salmon’ bogie rail wagon is here. MARK CHIVERS inspects this latest catch.
MODEL PRODUCTION is a complicated process and mistakes can and sometimes do happen – albeit rarely. This certainly appeared to be the case with the initial batch of Flangeway’s newly-tooled ‘OO’ gauge ‘Salmon’ engineers’ bogie rail wagons in 2021 (HM165). Following the model’s release, it was discovered that it measured around 20mm too short in overall length. As a result, customers were offered the option of a refund or replacement models in due course. Fast forward to the present day and Footplate Models has now received fully revised ‘OO’ gauge models, again developed in conjunction with its production partner Dapol.
