What do you reckon to it?

Resurrecting a topic from the old rmweb,
I've just set about making the final changes to my artwork, and hit the email button to send it off. Looking forward to getting it back and finally being able to finish off my fleet!
Having a serious think at the moment about my choice of locos, with the Hornby EWS management train pack looking incredibly tempting. Just wish they would do it without the name (and include a set of etched plates), as really I want it with the original name......
My planned fleet comprises:
67005 in Royal Train - Detailed Hornby
67006 in Royal Train - Respray to match the Hornby model.
66009 in EWS - This will be a complete respray to get the colours right
66029 in EWS Silver - Detailed Hornby model, with nameplates removed.
Amongst other things listed in more detail on oldRMweb, work includes a complete rebuild of the underframe to correct the bogies, separate components and correct the headstock/front fairing. Lots of etched bits to improve the body, new wheels, sprung buffers (Hornby 60), full lighting and finally the two lima models (what will be come 006 and 009) will be getting replacement motors.
Hopefully the etches wont take too long to come back to me, and all being well they should be available soon....
