A few weeks back I managed to pick up four of the N gauge societies kits (2 Shark Brake vans, one SeaCow and one polybulk grain wagon) up for £10 for the lot, so being so cheap its a good chance to practice my kitbuilding skills.

First up was the first Shark Brake wagon:

All inall quite easy to build but the instructions were quite poor just being text and one exploded diagram.

All finished, whist I didn't do a great job this is my first N kit, I didn't get any transfers as this was picked up cheap and that would add moreto the cost (maybe I will get some at a later date). I really don't like the wire coupling it makes you use, but I will neaten it out later when I have more stock to run it with.

The only N loco I have now is this SD45-2 to run it with (I can't use my Kato E231/E223 units as they don't have any couplings on the front or rear) but I will pick up some BR Blue Locos to run with it at a later date.

Not bad. It's certainly dwarfed by that SD45, is it 148th scale or 160th?

never mind, silly question. It just looks very small even at the larger scale.

Its does yeah lol, but it seems wider next to the SD45. The SD45 is a very tall beast so it really makes it look small
