Have been asked to confirm recommended thickness of plastic card for scratch building wagon bodies in OO.
Haven't worked in OO for years - In N I use 20 thou for the wagon body - the OO models in question are to be steel bodied minerals, so I would assume 20 thou would be about right (strong enough to withstand handling but thin enough for representing steel).
Anyone care to guess what thickness the OO RTR wagon body sides are ?
The chap in question wants a crack at the LMS Soda Ash wagon and some variations on 16 tonners including the LMS 1945 types.
He is looking at the 'Kit Bashing' section on the GANSG site () for ideas.
Any thoughts on this welcome.
