|The Ultimate HO Scale Flat Car Load!
HO Kit #215 US Naval 16" Gun Barrel Load
|This kit is designed to be loaded on two PRR F22 "Gun Flats" and includes an HO scale US Battleship Naval Gun Barrel (representative of both 16"/45 and 16"/50 naval gun barrels) and all associated blocking and hardware. HO scale brass F22 Flats were imported by Railworks,
now Crown Custom Imports. Resin F22 kits are available from Funaro & Camerlengo and can be found at www.fandckits.com
Flat Car Kits are not included in this kit.
|Additionally, the PRR most often utilized their FM, 40 foot long flat cars as an idler flat for these loads as shown in these photos.
Funaro & Camerlengo also manufactures kits of the PRR FM Flat Cars.
When placed on your layout, this load will "articulate" on curves.
|AMB makes Laser Cut Wooden Flat Car Decks for both the FM and F22 Flat Cars. Research by AMB, indicates that there were at least
seven different types of wood decks used on the F22 flats and the Gun flats used our "Type 7" deck. These Decks appear in these photos.
We manufacture all seven types of decks and they are available through "Laser Direct" at our web site www.laserkit.com
