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.

These look brilliant, considering the images are 3x the size of the real model you still can’t see the motor gear block, to me it’s a non issue.

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 ?

My thoughts are that someone should do some good footplate figures to go along with these!

Okay, those deco samples look superb, I can't wait to get the ones I've got on order.

"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. ;)   :jester: 

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.

The colour of 'Katie' looks to me to be a vermilion rather than maroon.

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)

Because that is the way of the world these days.
The Hornby J15 and the DJM J94 also have this feature.

Maroon seems like an odd choice of word by Hattons to describe the colour being represented, as in the photos I've seen of the real thing in this livery it's just red. Really red!

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!
