MC Cattle Container

I recently purchased several MC containers from SDS Models. According to their web site “In 1974 the Victorian Railways trialled several WAGR 20' cattle containers, this trial was deemed successful and the railways placed an order for 50 MC Cattle containers with Loadmaster at Woodend. The versatility of this design meant the cattle containers could be loaded individually onto four wheeled flat wagons like KQ and KMQ or loaded in threes on longer FQF bogie flat wagons.”

The MC featured in the photo above has received a light weathering, courtesy of some ‘US Army Field Grime’ and ‘Sepia Ink’. They should go well with the KMQ kits from Model Etch that I’m currently constructing.
