Thanks to the OP for starting this thread as I was not aware of these new models. I just had a look at the pictures on the CJM website and these look brilliant. I've never been a big Class 50 enthusiast, mostly because the Grafar version is not that great, and I only have a couple of them in rail blue just to have around. These CJM ones look like they are worth the £495, but for me, I am getting too ham fisted in my advancing years to ensure that I wouldn't drop and ruin one. I have dropped and wrecked Grafar models before and while it is very disappointing to break a model, at least I never felt as if I'd just wasted a huge sum and I could also scavenge the parts for spares to boot. If I broke one of these, I think I'd be sad for weeks!
