KUA Nuclear Flask Carriers

I received these within 24 hours of purchase, which was incredibly impressive.
The packaging of the product is fantastic, magnetic closing lid. So, when you open and remove the documentation, you get to view the wagons in all their glory.
Placing these on the track, and setting them up and running them is amazing. The intricacies of the model and how it sits on the track, how it looks, are stunning.
Not my first Accurascale wagon, and will not be my last. These are stunning.

Amazing Detail

Finally purchased the KUA wagons after thinking about it for some time but pleased I did (before they sell out). They run perfectly on my less than perfect layout so great addition to my fleet.

Excellent Model

Looks good, feels good, yes it's a great model.

Just brilliant

Excellent model, the detail is fantastic, despite the seemingly complex bogey set up they run brilliantly even over my dodgy track work, no derailments. They are a really good weight as well. It's everything you would want in a model, excellent value, excellent detail, build quality and faultless running.

Nuclear Wonders

Really impressive wagons. The detail is to the usual accurascale quality. Most of my points are set-track and I've had no derailment. The weight of the wagons is really good. Yes very impressed, would highly recommend.

Exquisite

When i saw Accurascale had announced the KUAs at Warley in 2019 i immediately placed a pre order

Since taking delivery of these superb goliaths they've never stopped running on my layout, they look immense behind my modern freight locos

The detail on these wagons is just amazing, all separately fitted with no moulded details or QC issues, they run incredibly smooth as well

Highly impressed and recommended these without a shadow of any doubt

Brilliant model, finely applied livery

Fantastic model, a most unlikely prototype for an RTR manufacturer to produce because of its scarcity.
Excellent attention to detail, beautifully finished.
Outside my usual era, but I just couldn't resist this pair.
