We are pleased to announce the production of a limited run, fine-scale RTR, injection-moulded 0 gauge model of the private owner Iron Mink van in Blue Circle and Ferrocrete liveries in 7mm scale (1:43.5, for 32mm standard gauge). The models are in production with expected delivery in Spring 2020.
The vans were built to a GWR design for the Associated Portland Cement Manufacturers (APCM). They operated from several cement works, including APCM’s large factory at Harbury in Warwickshire and were in service from the 1930s to the 1950s.
The model features a plastic injection-moulded body and chassis, metal-tyred wheels on pin-point axles fitted in compensated axle-boxes, sprung buffers and hook draw-gear with three-link couplings. Two liveries are available: FERROCRETE and BLUE CIRCLE.
The retail price per wagon will be £47.50 including UK VAT, plus postage at £4 per order.
The models will only be available direct from Minerva Models via mail and telephone order, the Minerva website and from the Minerva Models’ stand at selected model railway shows.
