Coal Hoppers

I have two coal hoppers in the works at the moment, both N-scale models and both for my own line of model railways products, ‘Ethan’s Models’. The first is a QR ‘VSA’ hopper, a modern 110T stainless wagon run in the coalfields of central Queensland. The ‘bin’ section of it features lower down the page. The second wagon is a NSW SRA (and now Pacific National) NHFF hopper. This was the first piece of 3D modelling that I undertook, some 6 months ago now, and only just nearing completion! It will be made up of numerous pieces of etched brass, and four blocks of cast polyurethane, generated from rapid prototyped masters.
