Peterborough-based Trains4U has announced plans to develop a ‘OO’ gauge Ministry of Defence (MOD) PFB/KFA Warflat, in conjunction with Cavalex Models.
Built between 1976 and 1981, these modern-era Warflats were introduced to carry loads such as light armoured vehicles and remain in service today.
The new ‘OO’ gauge model will cover both PFB and KFA variants and feature a zinc alloy frame, detailed underframe, sprung buffers and small tension lock couplings in NEM coupler pockets.
Trains4U’s Gareth Helliwell explained, “The KFA is a much sought-after wagon in ‘OO’ gauge and a personal favourite of mine, appearing high on the polls and wish lists for several years. We expect this wagon to be very popular, especially given the range of complementary wagons and load options already available in the marketplace.”
Two liveries are planned initially, in 1980s/1990s olive green with green jacks (PFB) and late 1990s/contemporary olive green with yellow jacks and bufferbeams (KFA). Sun-bleached and weathered wooden decking will also be represented, while four different running numbers will be offered for each colour scheme.
Exclusive to Trains4U and priced at £35 each, delivery is expected during late summer/early autumn 2020, subject to the minimum pre-order level being reached.
