How does this suit your fancy?

I’m not associated with the producer in any way…

I assume an armored rail car suits this campaign?

Nice!

Well, I’m in for sure. I have two or three more armored rail car builds to do, so that’s one possibility, or I could finally build my Sabre Model’s Schwerer Platformwagen Typ SSys.

Nice. :slight_smile:

Feel free to start now. And if someone would make this one live I would be grateful.

Seems to have a wall on the front and side?

Looks like a partly-demolished box car, re-purposed as a flatcar. The remnants of the end wall are left in place - probably due to the urgency of getting it into service. I assume it was a damaged box car just sitting in the yard when some officer scrambled all the transport he could lay hands on at short notice! It’s interesting to see how overloaded the frame is, bending in the middle…

Thanks! What a idea.

Forgot to mention I’m currently working on a Miniart goods wagon (35288) that would be ideal to replicate that car! It’s rated at 18 tons, so no wonder that concrete-covered StuG is bending the frame…
