  2. Can't believe I've only just seen this thread. Both a 91 and Mark IVs are always on my wishlist.
  3. Newsletter with CAD updates received today.
  4. I've just e-mailed Bachmann to ask if the RfD logo has been correctly placed on the production model.
  5. https://us4.campaign-archive.com/?u=2647f1b386f7ba8c60ce37a0a&id=d2f120a1da Good design for decoder access without taking the body off.
  6. I don't think a link has been posted to this yet on the BRM website: https://www.world-of-railways.co.uk/brm/reviews/dj-models/news-dj-models-class-92-cad-nears-completion
  7. But that doesn't mean the reason is a good one for the benefit of all!
  8. With anyone calling them out no doubt receiving the now predictable response that they are "just trying to help the project, honest guv"!
  9. Anyone who decides to enter crowdfunding has to be aware of one overarching element: they are taking a risk with their money. There remains an inability for many people to accept this, whether it's crowdfunding or investing in the stock market. When I invest in crowdfunding (and the stock market), I'm aware from the first second that my money is at risk, in the same way that Hornby, Bachmann etc risk their finances in the hope that they can sell the end product (though for me being the crowdfunder, I just want the end product). I weigh up all sorts of factors, which includes whether I'm happy to lose the whole of my investment. When investing, that's why I also put some of my dosh in boring fixed, low-rate accounts, to "spread the risk". My advice to anyone thinking of entering crowdfunding is focus on only one overall factor: that you are now entering a world where YOU take the risk. On that basis, do your research to see to what extent you believe this will be mitigated, but remind yourself that it will always be there. If you don't want to take any risk, just keep hoping that your required item will be produced by someone else who is willing to put their money at stake.
  10. Another newsletter should have been received this morning. Looking great! Now is the time to make any comments about changes you think are needed to [email protected]
  11. Ah, fair enough. I was just going by what it said on the website description.
  12. Thought it was just a set amount limited edition run, not based on orders received. From what I can see in the blurb, it'll just be a standard 33 painted appropriately, which is unusual for a Kernow ltd ed.
  13. Not a bad price for a pair of as-new 37s: https://www.hattons.co.uk/443135/Bachmann_Branchline_32_390Z_PO_Class_37_9_37905_37906_in_Railfreight_Grey_Limited_Edition_for_Kernow_Model_Ra/StockDetail.aspx NOW SOLD.
  14. http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/64264/3362-Heljan-Class-33-1-Diesel-Locomotive-number-83-301 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/64265/3364-Heljan-Class-33-1-Diesel-Locomotive-number-33-117 Kernow Model Rail Centre Press Release - Class 33s in OO from Heljan We are pleased to announce we have commission Heljan to produce two Class 33/1s which are expected to arrive around December. The first model is 83 301 which was nicknamed “Zebedee”. This loco worked as part of a test train formed in 1990 prior to the introduction of Eurostar units. It was formed of Class 73 Electro-Diesel Locomotive number 73 205 named "London Chamber of Commerce", former Class 33/1 Diesel Locomotive number 83 301 nicknamed "Zebedee" and Class 438 4-TC set number 8007. From the Summer of 1991 this ran with two additional vehicles in NSE livery. It will be produced with standard Heljan bogies as it is not viable to produce a new tool for the bogies for this one model. http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/64264/3362-Heljan-Class-33-1-Diesel-Locomotive-number-83-301 The second model is 33 117 in BR Blue livery with additional embellishments to the lamp brackets and buffers, also carrying the number D6536. http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/64265/3364-Heljan-Class-33-1-Diesel-Locomotive-number-33-117 Both models will be priced at £149 plus postage and orders can be taken immediately.
  15. A few blue/grey coaches with Class 90s in this collection, one nearly full blue/grey rake on what is probably a test train, plus an Intercity livery 90 on a container train and a Railfreight livery 90 on a passenger train: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157632184074445/
