Re: Re: Fez-ing reality of conversions/.....YES its getting desparate

Hi Hank,

If you want some variety for your supply wagons, the Imex canopys will fit onto the Airfix wagon train wagons. The Airfix wagon's wheels turn and you can harness up any horse or oxen by simply hand-twist drilling small holes into the animals sides.

The Imex wagons don't roll and the steering falls off, as does the drivers seat. But by combining you get some really cool variety. I use a hot tip to just melt/weld the top to the wagon inside. Neither set's tops stay on without some glue or something:

A/F plus Imex chow wagon top and drawers
A/F plus Imex chow top only
A/F plus barrels on sides with above
A/F with conestoga top (Boer War Boer Family)
A/F with Atlantic cattle/oxen
Could use Pegasus cattle even better
A/F with Imex ambulance top (cut off back for stretcher)
By the way, the old Giant of Hong Kong tops will fit into the A/F wagons, and painted would give more variety. You can see a couple of my works here on the HaT link, in the first few frames. They are A/F+Imex+Atlantic parts. The right one has chow wagon drawers in back, and the left one has Imex baggage/boxes inside. All together, they weigh alot and are quite excellent working products. Other designs, I've never scanned:

Have fun!
