Hornby BR Carflat Car Transporter Review
Hornby BR Carflat Car Transporter
(R6143) Rating 6/10
I always thought the
Hornby Carflat Car Transporter looked plastic and poorly detailed. This was
probably the case in the past but in my opinion the current version looks good.
Hornby Carflat Car Transporter still comes with the very poorly
detailed plastic Ford Sierra cars. Personally I would use not
use those cars (may be weather them and use them in a scrap yard
scene) replacing them with a more detailed Hongwell cars.
be advisable to secure the cars onto the transporter as they
will move if you start or stop suddenly. You might however see
this as a challenge to your driving sill.
Hornby Carflat Car Transporter is a double bogie wagon with two
movable ramps either end (allowing you to unload a long train
without un-coupling each wagon) and six metal removable fences
which help in keeping the cars on the model.
model does not have sprung buffers or NEM coupling but it does
have metal disc wheels. Additionally the body and bogies are
sufficiently detailed but are in need of some weathering.
this is an average model that lends it self to some modifying
(weathering) with none of the extras but no defects.
