So it seems like it’s been a while since another round of weirdness has been unloaded on this humble little page… Most likely because it has been!
However, in our defense, Bridget, myself and the tribe of daylight-fearing pygmies that we call the “Wuiske Models Team” have been collectively busier than a mass group of one-legged men in bum-kicking contests (am I the only one whom really wants to see this?)
So, with all of that aside (and the sunlight topic out of the way for the team for another 6 months), let’s get right into it…
Wuiske Models is VERY proud to announce our sixth ready To Run wagon and our second to be designed and made right here in Queensland–the KSA cattle Wagons.
These wagons are something we’ve wanted to produce for the best part of a decade.
The KSA cattle Wagons were built in 5 batches between 1957 and 1975, totaling 500 wagons in the class.
For this model, we’ve reproduced the KSAs from the second batch. these were introduced between 1961 and 1962. With the majority of the wagons lasting right up until the year 2000.
These models feature ultra fine construction and detailing. The sides are a scale 2 inches thick, JUST LIKE THE REAL THING! They also feature our standard bogie pin mounting system so you can remove, replace or modify the bogies however you want without damaging your models.
The KSAs also feature custom Tampo Printed data panels, based on photographs. This process has not been done in Australia for model trains since around 1971… Until now.
A cattle load to compliment these wagons is in development as we speak and should be ready well before Christmas.
As with all of our models, the KSA includes our popular partially compressed buffers to ensure you don’t need massive curves to enjoy your models.
These, along with the air hoses, are included in the pack for those who wish to add them.
These new wagons can be found here:
In HOn3½ Gauge
In HO Standard Gauge
Bridget and I would like to extend a MASSIVE thank you to the hard working (and ever expanding) Wuiske Models team for making it possible for us to achieve the impossible (and slightly insane) idea of producing Queensland Models in Queensland.
We will be doing more Adam’s Corner pages on these wagons so far as weathering and loading. As always though, we shall see how we go.
