  1. You're correct. They also pay per unit to dispose of the sharps bin. I wouldn't mind a few blades here and there and 'necessary' paperwork would be ignored, but if it became a lot or a regular thing, I'd be a little less sympathetic.
  2. Is there a problem? There seems an assumption that both models cannot survive. Also, that accurascale will provide the de-facto model. I wouldn't want to see either manufacturer put themselves at financial risk, but with such a common prototype, there seems the opportunity for both to exist and if a little bit of healthy competition drives standards upwards, this is surely a good thing? Time will tell, I'm sure both accurscale and cavalex have asked themselves a few questions. The hobby has been here before and it'll be here again.
  3. The short answer to this is that none of us outside KRModels and their contractor are likely to know. Regards the problems experienced by them I quote you Charlie Petty on the 142 thread "and this Covid stuff is throwing a wobbler in at the moment." In a world where air pistols have sold out, plastic bags for horse manure carry a 4 month wait, if anyone can predict the future, a job for you in Whitehall awaits
  4. "vague answers" is not particularly unique to KR Models at the moment is it?
  5. Perhaps repeating what everyone else has said, but to get rid of the blur, reduce your aperture (higher f number), which you'll find in your phone's camera settings. Be warned, things will get darker. To make them lighter, reduce your shutter speed (the camera shutter stays open for longer), but you'll need to keep it very still
  6. You might be confusing decoders. With a switchpilot, you program the address for first output - the remaining three take sequential numbers. But, I'm also wondering if you're on the correct screen. I'd have to refresh myself, but you appear to be on the decoder screen for programming loco deocders. You want the accessories menu
  7. "Hoverspeed" on YouTube has some extremely useful videos (a few years ago) on setting up ECoS including setting routes
  8. Kernow have them in stock if you're looking. No connection....
  9. One already winging its way from Coleford to South Wales - just try and stop it Boris!
  10. I think that's a bit of a leap. More likely a production slot was booked and the demand outweighed the supply for this slot. As soon as they can get more slots, you'll get yours.
  11. Me neither. My order is still showing as 'pending' on their website.
  12. Is it possible to ask a member of this parish to 3d print you the part?
  13. Pull the chip and put a blanking plug in to narrow down the problem
  14. I was in the first 500 to order. My edition number is 1605
  15. Mine arrived today. I don't think the ltd edition no tallies with order history. All seems ok, axle boxes in place. Like the box. TTS later
  16. Good luck with that. The rest of the world is 649USD. The UK is 847USD. I think the amount and the quoted currency is far from a mistake. He must be a very bitter little man. Still, he/Germany might need all the money they can get soon.
  17. Haha, yes but I'm a little wiser now! I don't wish to come over as a Hue fan boy, but when I set the lights, I do blend them, ie, some may show red, some orange, some white, some warm white, some cold in order to get the condition that I want. (See pic). And that condition is set by the press of a button. I can change the condition to suit whatever time of day or feature I want to model and the bulb output may become more blue, more red etc. Whatever I want. At £50 per bulb, it's not a cheap option though!
  18. Many thanks for this detailed explanation. I have a question from this. If the paint chosen does not fall into a gap not well covered, can the lamp(s) not be adjusted until it is? Like all the things, I guess it would depend on the quality of the bulbs. I fear the OP simply thought that my suggestion for smart bulbs was simply to have them turn on and off. This was not the case and I should have made it clearer. My suggestion for smart bulbs was to enable colours and intensity to be blended from the app which could then be used to simulate various times of the day on comman
  19. I'm afraid you've lost me. What do you mean by continuous spectrum/spectrum shape? It's a genuine question, I don't understand.
  20. Or as I posted early, smart bulbs where the colour output can be changed
  21. You can't make an assumption like that.
  22. Me too. As did the ####er on facebook now asking £150 for his. https://www.facebook.com/groups/270721966362295/2674760269291774/?sale_post_id=2674760269291774&comment_id=2674923099275491&notif_id=1596647066549853&notif_t=group_comment_reply
  23. I have a northern line efe that I treated myself to a while ago. If I remember, I paid around £150 for it. And I think that's a fair price for what it is - a reasonable but basic model. The glazing is thick, the couplings are weak, it makes a godawful noise as it trundles on track. But I like it and there is scope to add more detail. If EFE Rail can add a decent motor and improve the wheels and couplings then the RRP becomes more justifiable. However I'll be waiting to see more details of the improvements before I order. Fingers crossed.
