Announcing a series of resin, brass and custom-decal circus wagons in N! Economically priced!
These can fill your your Micro-Trains and N Scale Kits circus flatcars with some more variety and color from the golden age of circuses in the pre-depression era. And you can even afford it.
First up is a Calliope Wagon - used by a variety of shows but mostly by Cole Bros.
This is a one-piece casting with a piece of .035 styrene for axles, and the wagon-side decals. Priced at $6.00 per
THE DEVIL IS IN THE DECALS. What you see is a custom-designed and printed DECAL over the wagon sides to show all that detail. Each kit includes a pair of those decals. You only have to do basic color painting of the rest of the wagon
Next up is a Small Cage Wagon - patterned after a preserved wagon by Sells-Floto at the Circus World Museum.
This is a one-piece casting, and the wagon-side decals. Priced at $5.00 per
Check out THE DECALS. What you see is a custom-designed and printed DECAL over the wagon sides to show all that detail - thin iron cage bars and yes, that's a tiger in there. Each kit includes a pair of those decals for the sides. You only have to do basic color painting of the rest of the wagon
And the best is the Baggage Wagon - patterned after Ringling Bros #11, an outside-braced wood wagon later upgraded to rubber wheels. Nearly every circus had some of these, and they were the most numerous wagon style used for many purposes.
This is a real kit, with separate resin-cast sides, floor, seat, .020 brass axles, optional roof, brake beam, and full chassis parts. Can be built either as closed or open top version. The wagon wheels are Grandt Line, supplied with the kit. Priced at $10.00 per
This wagon proved to be so difficult to decal with a single-sheet application method that I recommend individual alphabets or dry transfers. If you really want to try it anyway, I'll include the Cole decals that I made on request but to snuggle-down those into the ribs was far more difficult than I imagined so it's optional and not particularly recommended.
