Salute #6 – Riding the Monorail

This is the last one, just in the nick of time! We’re just about to load up the van and set off for the ExCel.

We’ve been working on a 15mm version of our 6mm monorail scenery set for a while, in particular looking for an affordable way to represent the track – and we think we’ve cracked it at last.

We’ve hit on the idea of using narrow plastic cable trunking – remove the top and you’re left with a ‘U’ shaped channel which is flexible, easy to paint and is self-adhesive, making it a doddle to stick to a base. We sprayed ours with grey primer, then silver spray and gave it a black wash – job done! It’s available in the UK from Screwfix, Wickes and also online from eBay and Amazon. And it’s very inexpensive – just a few pounds for a 2 metre length. We’re planning to bring a few lengths with us on Saturday, cut down to 1m long so they’re easier to carry home on the train afterwards! We’ll do a full write-up after the panic of the show is over.

So we’ve made four resin carriages that fit this track – an engine, passenger carriage, flat car and an independent armed scout car. We hope to put together some package deals as well although they aren’t yet finalised.

B15-1130 – Monorail Engine – £10.00
B15-1131 – Passenger Carriage – £10.00
B15-1133 – Flat Car – £9.00
B15-1137 – Scout Car – £12.00
B15-1101 – Track (1m length) – £2.50
