You can buy a DBSO ready to run from Britannia Pacific and Silverfox rather than hacking and gluing pieces out of the coaches with the Hurst Kit.

http://www.britannia....co.uk/DBSO.htm

http://www.silverfox...iving_brake.htm

Both companies do them in the Anglia Turquoise livery.

Silver fox and DC Kits also do the DBSO in Kit form for £43.50.

£43! :O way out of my range and was not wanting to spend £43 on what is basicly a MK2D converted also hacking and modding the mk2 is one of the fun parts also already got the mk2D waiting for the chop

To Mod an Airfix Mk2 is not that hard.

If its any consolation they had kits in stock in January so they are still producing them. I managed to get a ScotRail one and they sold out in about 2 days! Same with a few other bits and pieces they got back into stock. I signed up for the email notifications but I have yet to have one!

The only thing missing there, is the window frames from the front windows, something which all of the DBSO kits dont seem to include, although only a minor thing it helps with the front appearance when converting the BSO into a DBSO

still no closer to finishing it, but it does show what you get from them for the air con modification. (Edit: i.e. the big lump of out of focus whitemetal in the foregrpunfd of that photo)

That is a 2F air con fan, replaces the 2D 2E twin fan arrangement.

I made one for my 2F FO, as it is an Airfix model

DBSO kits can be available on ebay when they come up as i picked one up off there for less than £17. But you have to be patient when they do. I keep an eye out for one coming up on ebay!

Out of stock again.

Hurst appear not to be the best at communicating, I've sent them 2 emails asking when this will be back in stock, not heard back yet!
