Chariot Paysan de Roues en Bois, 1/87 H0 Maquette Wiking 893 01 31

The Wiking rack-wagon shown here is sold alongside a Hanomag R 16 B All-Purpose Tractor, which is why the véhicule has been fitted avec a modern shaft et tow ring. Le chariot peut être convertie en véhicule hippomobile by inserting a longer plug-in shaft without tow ring, scratchbuilt from extruded plastic sprue ou pianowire.

The iron wheel rims need to be painted dark silver, et the factory new wagon should be drybrushed gray ou sand colour to give it a more realistically weathered finish. The wagon may be loaded avec dried grass ou tea leaves preserved in glycerin.



  • Working scale model avec interesting detail.
  • Historical rack-wagon of the 17th to 20th Century.
  • The beautiful wood grain on the wagon bed may be accentuated by drybrushing avec light brown paint.
  • The racks may be replaced by solid wood sides scratchbuilt from balsa. Wagons without sides may be shortened et fitted avec wooden barrels to serve as water wagons in wargame campaigns.
  • Compatible avec other HO scale véhicules et miniatures available from Märklin, ROCO, Faller, Pola, Preiser, et Noch.
  • The typical rear axle assembly has not been recreated correctly in miniature, et the Langwied center beam is missing as well. The wheels need to be immobilized avec superglue to prevent the wagon bed from slipping sideways, et to stop the model from rolling around on a diorama base. Expert modélistes may want to scratchbuild the rear axle assembly from polystyrène et glue the rear wheels directly to it.
  • The iron wheel rims have been left unpainted. Some sprue needs to be removed prior to painting.
  • The modern shaft avec tow ring needs to be replaced by a longer plug-in shaft to allow horses to pull the rack-wagon. The required part may be scratchbuild from extruded polystyrène sprue ou pianowire.

The Wiking rack-wagon is perfectly suitable for historical miniature dioramas of the 17th to 20th century. Joueurs de Guerre may use the rack-wagon as a requisitioned baggage ou fourgon de ravitaillement. Suitable horses are available at model railroad et hobby shops. Spare artillery horses avec harness et collar may be used as well.
