T Gauge 1:450 Scale Victoria Bridge Kit TB-008
1:450 Scale Victoria Bridge Kit TB-008
Victoria Bridge Laser-Cut Acrylic Kit modeled on the single track bridge over the River Severn as part of the Severn Valley Railway measuring 235mm total length with a central span length of 155mm.
This kit is made up primarily of laser cut acrylic and whilst being the best material for obtaining accurate detail it is extremely fragile in its singular state but when assembled becomes as strong as any other plastic kit.
19 x Pair of Railings
Tools Required (But not included)
Tweezers, needle-nose pliers and a Stanley knife are all the tools you should require to assemble this kit.
Assembly is straightforward as the majority of pieces have been cut with notches so that they will only key into the correct adjoining piece. For bonding we recommend dicloromethane as it melts the acrylic and is available from modelmaking supply companies such as 4D Models (styrene cement is not suitable). This is a chemical and caution should be exercised when using or if you prefer you can use cyanoacrylate superglue. Glues and cement are not included and are sold separately.
Finishing the Bridge
We painted our metal work using a red primer straight from an aerosol can whilst our stone effect was achieved by lightly spraying with tiny amounts of grey primer, white primer, yellow filler primer, red primer and finally black. Once our paint was thoroughly dry we used a light grey tile grout brushed on then damp sponged off to produce our mortar effect. Paints are not included.
T gauge is the smallest working model railroad gauge currently available. Its 1:450 actual scale or ½ of Z Gauge. You can pack a lot of railroading in a very small space. VcsHobbies is a US distributor of these amazing miniature trains.
