Kaboom! Rail mounted gun from Oxford Rail

Postby Bigmet » Wed Jan 24, 2018 10:06 am

I see that Oxford Rail's latest is that classic LNER design, the big naval gun on a rail carriage. Something of a crossover product between their military vehicle models and the railway range? Whatever, hope they have a plan for how it will run on track as the eight axle bogies are not exactly 'curve friendly'.

My immediate response was "I wonder if it could be rigged for sound" or partnered with a below the board sub-woofer. No point in a big gun if it can't make a big noise.

Makes you think what could be achieved if Hornby reissued the "Battle Space" range with DCC sound and effects! :D

Did any run on the S&DJR?
Pete.
Gauge is not spelt guage. Remember to put another "m" in remeber. Manufacturers has two "r"s in.
When you buy something, you have bought it, not brought it.
Before you post, are you really LOL and do you NEED to tell us?

Expect the vast majority will end up an a very short straight section behind glass :wink:

Yep, I'll be having one at that very reasonable price and I've got a perfectly sized perspex case for it!

About to go on sale. apparently, the goods are in the warehouse according to Oxford Rail. (I'd rather it was the N7/3 in BR black that was going on sale, boom. boom.)

I wonder if anyone will produce the squadies with concave bums to sit along the barrel.

My youthful modifications to Airfix soldiers come to mind. Base cut off, then temperature controlled soldering iron applied to the groinal zone to rehape them for the purpose (and little use for anything else) would be my approach.
