Livery samples look good, and the bulge under the boiler doesn't look too bad.
I do wonder if the tank handrails are fitted a tad too high on the tank top, what do others think? Comparing with prototype photos it looks like they're lower to the radius.

I went through my images of Burnley no1, but non were in blue, they are either filthy or preserved NWGB green. That said i’m sure in the archives of the “Bury Transport museum journal” from the late 70’s there is an image as such in Blue.
I’ve got a few of these on order, definitely a good choice.
Maybe after the first batch, a crane tank body could be added to the chassis ?

"As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback."
My only thought is you're a very bad man! I'd only ordered one and now I want four of the little b******
There, there, Paul! Take two Valiums and go to bed. It will all be better in the morning.
p.s. I know what you mean. I've ordered one but the rest all look so tempting.
It is nice to see the cab variations as well as the liveries, in the flesh now. They do look good.

Why have they all got holes for the fitting of vacuum pipes when I can't remember any of them being so fitted?
I'm guessing these are livery samples, so it is not the details that are correct - the factory has simply taken a dozen copies of one type and give it the 10 different liveries.
(And the ones in preservation, eg the GWR, BR and CR liveries most certainly ARE fitted with vac pipes)

What happened to the "two different cab front windows"? As far as I can see, all twelve have the same front windows, even so the low tank versions definitely need their windows to be quite a bit lower.
And also, will the wheel middles be painted on the finished models (that also applies to the P-Class)?
Otherwise quite tempting looking models!
