HO-OO Trackside Range


HO-OO Trackside Range

In the pages which follow all the kits are scaled specially for OO and HO gauge model railway layouts. Many of these kits can be built in different ways and, apart from their use with model railways, interesting housing and industrial scenes can be made with the buildings. The armoured vehicle kits and military scale figure series can be used to create real battle scenes either over open country or house-to-house fighting using the bungalows and houses to good effect. All the items of rolling stock are supplied with non-operating scale hook and link couplings where the models are to be built purely for show purposes, as well as a set of R6 Airfix automatic couplings. Airfix automatic couplings are also available as a seperate item, Catalogue No. R6 Series 1. Each box of couplings contains 24 couplings and 24 retaining pins. The coupling is based on the X2F type as standardized by the National Model Railroad Association. Airfix couplings are automatic on impact and uncoupling is achieved by means of a simple ramp.
