Plate Steel Loads

So I received another package the other day with some steel loads that I had ordered from JWD premium products in the USA (link) they are made by DUHA in the Czech Republic I had seen these reviewed in AMRM a couple of years ago but could not find the Australian distributor they had listed.

#11220 plate steel load excuse the unweathered wagon :)
The loads I ordered range in price between $15 to $20 each and they take paypal or credit card. I would advise contacting them by email as there shipping calculator over estimates the shipping costs. But I found them to be very easy to deal with they refunded the extra shipping charges straight away. 

#11417 "Voestalpine" Plate Steel Load

#11226 Assorted Structural Steel

Also I have included some photos of my SDS BMF wagons for you to have a closer look at starting with the 1970's version in Black 

Nice Underframe details

And the 1960's version in white

The bogies even include brake detail

Close up view of the 2AE bogie ( I have a feeling these will be available seprately)
 And some shots of the nice boxes they come in.

SDS BMF OAK Milk Tankers

I had a package arrive Friday morning in it we're two packs of SDS Oak Milk Tankers I had a quick look before heading away for the weekend they are just awesome fantastic paint work and all of the parts are fitted correctly :) I ordered two packs a 1960's and a 1970's the 2AE bogies fitted to the 1960's pack are just beautiful with full brake details applied the paint on both sets is very crisp and if you are thinking about getting some I would be quick because they are great models and you will be kicking yourself if you miss as they are a very limited run I did not have time to snap pictures yet but I borrowed a couple from the SDS site until I can take some of my own.
