Does anyone have any of these for sale or download especially locomotive building and painting by Tony Wright, I am willing to pay a fair price but not the hundreds of pounds on Amazon.

I've noticed whilst looking for something else, that some have started to appear on YouTube, though probably not lawfully. I only watched a small part and realised I already owned it, so not sure if they are complete. Search for model locomotive construction.

I did see a version of the Loco kit building DVD on You Tube and from what I remember it was complete, some 4 hrs long or so. I have always been mystified why publishers rarely reprint or reissue valuable works like Right Track (I bought most of them when they were available and they are excellent IMO). The upcoming generation of modellers would benefit greatly from the wisdom of these grey beards. I'm also thinking of Wild Swan modelling books which are so full of great information yet folk have to scrat about looking for second hand copies.

I have only just come across these DVD's, one of my club members loaned me volumes 5 & 6, which I thought so good that I bought a copy of each from Ebay. I was dissappointed to see that they were no longer in production. I don't know if all the DVD's are similar but, to me, the presentation is excellent.

Yes they are excellent, especially the kit building, detailing and painting ones. Great for learning techniques that sometimes don't quite translate with the written word and photographs.
Keep an eye out for them at exhibitions and eBay. Don't pay silly prices though.
