This page contains wagons built from the Slaters range of wagon kits.
Many moons ago I build a Slaters 14 Ton Tank wagon kit but due to various circumstances I never got around to lettering or finishing it off.
When I built it I replaced the plastic tank barrel with a rolled brass one to get more detail.
Initially I painted it like this because it was going to be a Class A petrol tank.
Then I found a photo and decided to do this to complement the one that I did earlier.
After the locker wagon the next Slaters kit to hit the bench was going over old ground - another Salt Wagon.
Like the first one, the transfers are home made but then I hand painted over the lettering to enhance it.
And finally a shot alongside the first one.
The latest Slaters build is a conversion from a Gloucester 5 Plank Open to a Midland Railway build WD locker wagon.
Another long time inhabitant of the work bench/shelf queens is this Tar Tank Wagon.
