Coming soon from Wuiske Models, our third MADE IN QUEENSLAND ready to run wagon, the PCS Container Wagon.
These early container wagons entered traffic in Queensland from March 1970. A total of 68 wagons were built. Several lasted in traffic up until the early 2000s. The PCS wagons saw service in all regions of the state throughout their lives and were particularly employed on smaller branch lines and for use with over length containers.
These models will be available as of Monday the 14th of September 2020.
Wuiske Models is proud to announce the release of our AUSTRALIAN MADE acrylic paints. These are the same paints we use to paint ALL of our RTR products so you know they’re compatible with all types of plastic as well as having a perfect colour match. No matter if you’re touching up a model or painting from scratch. They are also designed for airbrushing STRAIGHT FROM THE BOTTLE!
So you don’t need to waste time mixing paints. These are the first two colours we’ve released and we’re planning on many more.
The Paint section of the site can be found here.

The 38 members of the 2470 class were introduced from 1980 to 1983. The majority of these units were held in coal traffic throughout the 1980s with only a handful being released to general traffic. By the early 1990s however, all members were in general traffic and could be seen in all areas of the state.
The Driver Only (low nose) units are:
We’ve added several more flavours (seriously, don’t eat these, they will tickle your throat) of Static Grass to the Scenery section of the catalogue. As well as this, we’ve added the high quality Ground Up Scenery Static Grass Applicators. These are a brilliant little device that are made by a Queensland company!
We’ve enabled comments on the Adam’s Corner page as requested… This could be entertaining.
Our catalogue is now fully BACK UP AND RUNNING. We apologise for the inconvenience.

As mentioned a few days ago, here are the final details of the FOURTH locomotive to be released for Queensland Modellers.
The 2100 class proud to be released by Wuiske Models in partnership with Haskell Co. These new locomotives are now available and ready to be sent.
These models are available in SEVEN running numbers, three in original (high nose blue livery), two in driver only blue livery and two in driver only corporate livery.

The Driver Only (low nose) units are:
Some running numbers have already proved to be ridiculously popular and are dwindling in number.
The new 1720s are available to all and selling fast. There are 18 running numbers available in both standard HO (16.5mm) gauge and Narrow HOn3½ (12mm) gauge.
Some numbers (such as the bicentennial liveried 1723 are selling fast. The two models of 1770 “James Cook” are selling fast also.
As with all of our Ready to Run models, the 1720s come fitted with genuine Kadee #158 couplers which can be set for either the correct Narrow Gauge height or the Standard Gauge height as desired.
All models are fitted with a standard NMRA 8 pin DCC plug and are fully DCC ready. The price remains the same at $295.00 each.
With the 1720s getting ever closer. Here are some photos of the models on the production line.
With Chinese New Year upon us, this has added to our small delay. But as you can see in the following photos, there is not too far to go now.
The production had one or two issues that we needed to sort out to ensure the running qualities were up to the standard of our previous locomotives.
We’re happy to say that ALL issues have been resolved and all 18 running numbers will be available soon.
At this stage we are looking at around two more months for production to be completed.
As with everything we shall see how we go on this front. But this is where we’re currently up to.
