Default First N Gauge wagon kit (partial)

I got my first N gauge wagon kit today.



It is the Peco KN-R8.
I actually got it already built but it needs painting.
Couplings fully intact as well.

Other than that it was an absolute bargain at 3.50

That is a bargain. Is it the new price? Also, does it include the wheels and couplings?

It was fully built woth wheels and couplings.
I just need to paint it.

It just so happens I'm part of the n gauge group on Facebook and he had 2 more other wagons to sell at 10 for the pair unpainted including delivery.

I guess I'm hooked ��

Well done! I'm glad what I build and paint is in 7mm scale though! I find it easier. I take my time more when I kit or scratchbuild these days. When I was younger I'd try and do everything quick. I'd almost be painting before the glue was dry!
These days I've learnt to take my time and there is no rush. It is much easier this way. Relax and enjoy!
The other thing I will add is that the things you make are more personal then ready made items. I'm finding it especially so in narrow gauge form as I'm deciding on the livery etc.
