Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Vandalising models doesn't come naturally to me, but that's what I'm going to have to do for a very up-to-date scenic feature on Bron Hebog.
Recently a car had an 'argument' with a Garratt - and came off second best - on the occupational crossing, also called Bron Hebog, which is at the back right hand corner of our layout.
The vehicle involved was a Ford Puma and it got me wondering whether there were any suitable scale models available on the market?
A quick internet search turned up one of these, conveniently in red, the same colour as the car involved in the incident.
This particular model is to HO scale, which is smaller than the 4mm scale of OO9, but there is also a useful modelling dodge to have things at the back of a layout smaller and so add depth by making them seem further away.
As this will be indeed be placed at the furthest away point on Bron Hebog it should work well.
The challenge now is to make this pristine plastic Puma look a little more like this....
