PILOT SCHEME MODEL DETAILED & PRODUCT UPDATE on face book page
SLW friend and customer Greg Brookes recently got in touch to let us know that he had recently completed another of his detailing projects. This time he has represented D5007 - one of the Pilot Scheme series with extra grilles - as it was running in the early 1970s with full yellow ends. Note also that he has applied our etched SR-style headcode brackets. The model is pictured here paired with D5087 whilst taking a break between duties on Kier Hardy's 'EM' Hornsey Road TMD.
With the Chinese New Year holiday shutdown now out of the way, final assembly and packing of the latest batch of models continues and we estimate completion and shipping to take about two months. Unfortunately the minor improvements we wanted to implement with this batch meant that we got caught up in the extended holiday break. We hope you understand. It would have easier to have just pressed the 'straight re-run' button but that's not the way we work, preferring to refine parts and add new bodyshell variety. We are sure these changes will be worth the wait.
