Lyndons Basic Australian Trains RKEX kit update

Hi all
 Well I actually finished something reasonably quick it does not always workout that way.
The RKEX kit was a nice and easy kit to build with no problems everything went together
well and I'm hoping that Lyndons do some more modern wagons especially for the steel train
maybe a  RKEF with both ESX and ELX ends or a RKJX (I think they all have the the same underfloor????? maybe) . I definitely will be ordering up 3 more RKEX kits to use up the 5
decal options in the not to distant future.
Till next time

Lyndons Basic Australian Trains RKEX kit

Hi all
 After alot of procrastinating i finally got a couple of Lyndons Basic Australian Trains RKEX kits
for my steel train having never got any of his kits i didnt know what to expect.
How they are packaged
The instructions
 Part castings
Detail parts
After a quick glance at the kit  the castings are crisp with only a tiny amount
of air bubbles the decals look good with 5 sets of wagon numbers and i really like the
Pacific National safety reflectors for the wagon sides (i would love alot more of them for
my other wagons) and  i think the brass etch is from Model Etch. I am hoping they build
into some nice little wagons for my ever growing steel train. I cant wait to get started on
the build so it should not be to long before they are built and put on here.
Till next time
