Accurascale Reveal New CDA China Clays

Posted by Warren Bennett on

Accurascale today announces an all new run of their CDA China Clay hopper wagons in the iconic English China Clay (ECC) livery as they first appeared in service in early 1988 through to privatisation years of the late 1990s/early 2000s.

Eight triple packs to be produced in this batch available to pre order for £79.95 each all available with FREE UK POSTAGE!
The Model

As you can see in the photos above, our CDA wagons feature a wealth of detail and crispness which signifies 'The Accurascale Way'. A diecast chassis, brass bearings and 26mm pinpoint axles means smooth running and excellent running performance Particular attention has been paid to the detail differences over the traditional HAA wagons these were based on, such as the equipment at the wagon end, holes in the bodyside on one side, the underframe and of course, the hood/canopy.

Given the flexibility of the tooling, Accurascale can also cater for those wagons as built as CDAs from new, as well as those converted from HAA hoppers, giving the modellers a true variety in their wagon rake.
