Great Western Railway Rectank

GWR Rectank - model in 7mm scale (O Gauge) by David L O Smith

A 7mm scale model of a GWR Rectank and bridge girder load that were entirely scratch built (including the wheels, buffing gear and couplings) from brass, acrylic and plastic card.  These bogie vehicles were originally built for transporting military tanks during the Great War but most were sold into commercial service at the end of the hostilities; some were sold to the major railways and others were sold to heavy industries, such as steel works and foundries.
