Hello Bazers

Looks like nice work so far on this build.

What thickness of plastic card are using ?

The 'spacers' are a good idea for what is a quite long wagon, for ensuring the sides are parallel and to prevent possible warping. I imagine the real vehicle would have had "bulkheads" welded inside too.

One of these wagons is on my scrathbuild list as well, I'll be watching your progress

Thanks neil
i used 30 tho plastic card then doubled up in betwen bulkheads with another layer of 30 tho card to stop any warping.
