Gordon's Train Kits

 

These laser cut wooden kits are ideal for kit-bashing and/or building your own models. They are very basic enabling you to add your own roof (made of whatever material you like), whatever type of bogies you choose together with your system of couplers etc. The kits do not include any screws.
Most vehicle models are to a height of about 155mm wide say about 6 1/8 inches. The Van width is about 98mm or 4 7/8inches,the low plank wagon is about the same. The coaches are narrower about 103mm say 4inches, the Railcar is about 110mm again about 4 1/4inches. The roof adds about 5 to 10mm depends on builders choice. The length of the Van is 6 1/8inches about 155mm, The coaches are about 12 1/2inches about 318mm and the Railcar is the longest 19 ¼ inches or about 490mm.
The height will depend on which make of wheelset are employed and the skills of most modelers can be used to narrow these kits to sizes desired.
