    It can't be the same picture as they have different numbers which, in itself, is interesting as they are so close.

    The book that you refer to is it, Southern Wagons pictorial by Mike King?

    Sorry to labour this one. The pictures of the wagons you have uploaded here are numbered 7798 and 7796. Are they both in this book?

    How do you manage to re produce such clear images? I assume that you are using a camera.

    This wagon is the next project in 7mm so this thread has been very useful.

    For my David Mills wagon builds, I'm following the picture of No. 7796.

    Because the solebars are made up of 2 and 4 layers glued together, I decided to skim the tops and ends to have them all level. With the best will in the world, it is still difficult to glue them up and get them flush hence my skimming of these in the milling machine.

    This picture shows the floors and ends glued together with the witness of the draw hook plate filled in. I shall be fixing some oval plates in their stead.

    Some of the stanchions with their thick paper straps glued in place. I used fish glue for these as it goes off quite quickly meaning that one can move on with the next part without too much delay.

    Here I've filled in some holes and made new ones as per the photograph.

    The solebars have been treated in a similar fashion with unwanted holes and the number plates filled in. I have some new plates on order.
