542 BR 'Clayhood' China Wagon
BR 'Clayhood' China Wagon
BR built 875 of these wagons between 1954 and 1960 for use on the West Country china clay workings. The first 100 wagons were unfitted, but all were later fitted with Morton vacuum brakes. Transfers are included; glue and paints are required to complete this model. Use the Pecoscene PS-361 China Clay Dust Weathering Powder to give that 'working vehicle' look to your wagon.

Ratio Scale Models was started in 1950 by Jack and Dev Webster, producing fine coach kits made from sheet plywood pressings in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire. They commenced manufacturing plastic kits in 1959 and the name was changed to Ratio Plastic Models. The factory was moved to Goring-on-Thames in 1961, and to Sturminster Newton in 1972. As the range continued to grow, they moved to larger premises in Buckfastleigh in 1986. Ratio was sold to PECO in 1996; production now takes place at a new factory in Buckfastleigh, along with the Wills and Parkside ranges.
