The first arrival will be the 9F/Evening Star due in May

 

http://www.finescale...vening-star.htm

 

The models will be delivered fully finished and are priced as follows

 

Evening Star £2000

Black 9F £1850

 

I think these prices compare will with other brass RTR models

 

To follow will be Britannia's and Duke of Gloucester (yes I know there is another one coming out where we lead others follow  :no: )

 

Price forecast £2200

 

I realise these are not Dapol prices but as you have seen with Lionheart once you go into brass the price rises accordingly

As you say, not Dapol prices...    but errm - did not the original have the centre driver flangeless? The pic in the above link does seem to show all wheels the same.

errm yes :no:

 

consequence of the way Korea works they are small subcontractors making for each manufacturer,  so for a wheel you have to pay for each mould, at prototype stage one mould at production  stage second mould - result -flange less centre wheels for sales model

 

but with all flanged drivers we still got it round 4'

Guys

 

I think it probably takes less time for a baby elephant to be born but the 9F is on its way.  Advanced supplies are in the air with the plan to deliver at Kettering, the rest to follow next week.  All subject to good old UK customs letting them through of course.  I have kept the price at the pre-order price due to the long wait

Been a while posting so a quick update

 

9F  not many left 2 Evening Stars, 2 single chimney, 3 Tyne dock and 4 double chimney

 

The locos will go round 3'9" in both directions with the longer draw bar fitted

 

we have tested them pulling 21 brass coaches still drawing less than an amp

 

The new Loksound 4L with a stay alive is proving very popular rated at 3amps it is plenty for this loco and other accessories including smoke, this all fits inside the loco

 

Britannia and Duke are go from an interest point of view just go to face economical facts if the pound drops after Brexit vote  we may have to wait until it picks up  again.

 

The factory have already plonked one price increase on us which we have absorbed but another would be deadly, we got a good deal on the 9F because of the numbers we ordered but this run will be a lot smaller 

 

There are a couple of cancelled orders at the old price on the website under finished locos

If Finscale Brass are at the Reading show I will ask. If anything happens though, John I suspect will be in touch with me.

Sorry guys don't get on here much these days

 

9F

 

still got supplies of all versions but down to ones and twos they are £2300 in DC £2650 DCC & sound £100 weathered 

 

as far as I know everyone that ordered one has one

 

The Brit is underway just finalising details we will only be making the names we have orders for, i'm afraid the pre-order deal quota is full, now  £2600 DC £2950 DCC & sound £100 weathered 

 

no money to pay just yet but if you want a specific loco now is the time to tell me

 

Brexit bah humbug  :no:

 

John
