Building an RU Wheat Wagon

David May of Lithgow has kindly supplied me with photos of RU Wheat Wagons that he and Ben Degabriel have built.  They worked out how to build the frame and Ben done the welding on the frames.  David completed the rest.

The RU Wheat Wagon Shell and Detail parts can be purchased by us.  We prefer not to post as they are charged by the cubic metre, and difficult to pack

The RU Wheat Wagons are only the fibreglass shell. The detail parts including the Ribs, Hand Rails etc have to be put on by the modeller and most parts are supplied with the fibreglass shell
