SDS Models FQX flats

Goods new for container flat car addicts. SDS Models have announced that their FQX wagons have completed production and are heading our way.

These wagons run with just about all operators, and the all these liveries would be found on any Pacific National inter-modal service, right across Australia. There are many, still in AN green and VR red, (though probably not coded VR), you just would not notice, as they are covered in road grime.

The first run liveries, are VR red, Freight Australia green, Pacific National grey with sunflower stripe, QRNational grey, SAR grey and Australian National green and gold, plus road grime.
Bad news, is that the first run of SAR and AN flats came out the factory incorrect, having four chain boxes, instead of two. This is to be corrected in the next run. 

Update from SDS, is that the rerun of FQX wagons is to arrive late July, hopefully with the correct SAR/AN version. 
The correct South Australian versions arrived August 2014
