A little project that has been in the back of my mind for a while is a couple of OAA’s.  I picked up  a cheap pair from Ebay (strangely lettered as OBA’s) and set to work.OAAs-comparedThe body is OK but the chassis is horrible plus it rides way too  high (Hornby repositioned the buffers to compensate).  The chassis went in the bin and new solebars added (spares from the Cambrian SPA kit),  The wagon uses Bill Bedford sprung W irons and the linkages and handbrake levers are from Colin Craig.

The OAA looks very nice Jim. What colour did you use as the base for the bodywork? Cheers, James
