These models are more than a bit naff, but for the price they are great for static displays. I had to strip down the Mallard one and reglue the wheels straight and rejoin the wobbly bottom half of the tender. I also did a little bit of weathering on the Mallard. You know I often wonder why Airfix/Dapol never made these part of their plastic kit range.
I've only bought the Flying Scotsman and Mallard issues and now wish I'd have purchased at least six of the Mallard ones - repainted them appropriately and had a bash at recreating a cheap version of the Great Gathering. Wonder if the mag will be reissued?
