  New Details for VHGF hoppers, both styles, plus a dress-up kit


David has been working on re-tooling the I wagon kits, I and IY. He hopes to have the new versions available at the AMRA exhibition at Caulfield in August.


VHGF kits produced since January 2019 have included additional moulded parts for a rope hitch, brackets for piping under one side sill, brackets for uncoupling levers and a jig to assist with forming uncoupling levers from 0.3mm wire.  Kits do not include wire for these items, but wire is included in a dress-up kit, E8, which also contains etched brass walkways, handrails, stirrup steps and shunter's steps.

The following photos show the dress-up kit applied to the unpainted VHGF hopper car.
