Heljan announces the development of a Class 50

Or people just buy anyway, if they're desperate enough, and put up with the errors, because there's no viable alternative available? In this case, most unfortunately, for now there won't be.
...and if anyone wants to crow about building kits instead, rather than putting up with sub-standard R-T-R, then:-
1) the JLTRT kit will no longer be available, and was equally - or more - expensive, once wheels/motors/gears/paints/transfers were added, &
2) the Thread about the build of a PRMRP Class 50 kit comes to mind, and what a nightmare for the builder that was - I think he gave up in the end?
I wonder why the builder of the PRMRP Class 50 gave up as its not that difficult to build? I have built several and all of their kits have issues but not insurmountable.

Absolutely. So many armchair experts happy to rubbish a product before ithe final approved sample has been seen, let alone manufactured. All very sad, I wouldn't like to be involved in manufacture these days with so many depressing moaners.
With respect, its all about constructive criticism which is what they ask for and what they got! Plus, as has been said a few times, that tooling won't be changed now, it's too far advanced (financially and time-wise) to throw it in the bin and start again.
Sorry if some don't like it but I'm not telling lies, if it's not right, I'll say it's not right and spend my hard earned somewhere else.
