1/35th Scale Narrow Gauge Wagons - update part five

In addition to the standard flat and modified flat wagons that have featured on this Blog, I have also been working on these two coal tubs. The inspiration came from an image I found on ebay and the tubs have been built from plastic card on cut down HO-OO wagon frames. 

Once built, I used heat to distress the tubs and give them some wear. I've never seen a true tub that has not had some damage or repairs. The coal tubs are slightly shorten than I need, so I will have to come up with some way of lengthening them before I start adding paint.

The final image shows the two tubs alongside the Fireless engine on a section of PECO O-16.5 track.
