  1. Hello I tried using the etch on Hornby s A4 a while ago and found it didn’t look right it didn’t match the shape of the window. I ended up masking around the window and painting it. Looked much better For the bell and whistle on my dominion of Canada I used miniatures by Eric. A Canadian company in busby Alberta, you will need to google that. Their stuff is ho but it looks fine when done. I’ll post a picture soon. Mine was a renamed limited edition sir Nigel gresley. I am very proud of my efforts.

    New Hornby Rocket

    If you don’t want it don’t buy it. Simple
  3. Ok so this is all misleading. You state this as if it is fact. However if You read the text you would read that the author thinks it maybe the Hitler youth. And the photo may have been taken In November 1936. What I can say that a group of visiting Germans in 1936 would have been treated as just that. In 1936 no danger would have been seen.
  4. I’m not convinced about pre fitted speakers. I don’t want to pay for something I’m not going to use
  5. Sorry didn’t see the request I was replying to being quoted in a post. I will leave now. CAVALEX good luck with the project
  6. I’m sorry but I still don’t see the connection you are trying to make.
  7. Thanks for this I was only going by what the Hornby stand told me a few years ago that they do
  8. Thanks so much for this, I love the class 92 I think the prototype just looks like what a modern electric loco should look like and yes I am aware of their age. I think a huge missed opportunity and am glad they are getting a new lease of life.
  9. I’ve just ordered some mk5 sleepers, may order more in the future, is there any news or up to date pictures coming soon?
  10. I don’t think it quite works like that, when a mould is built it’s built in its entirety they don’t borrow bits of it for other models anymore. Like when they did the railroad stuff many complained at a newly tooled LNER tender that was inferior to the existing one. It’s because they are all made in different factories. If you start taking bits of a mould set away to make other things. Moulds get mixed up and lost.
  11. Exactly. I said on page 16 of this thread on the 8th January that this model will go to tool when 50% of the funds had been raised. The 3d print has been around for a while now. The model announced in March 2019, it got loads of free publicity off Dean Park station (I suspect it was free) yet still no announcement (even before Hornby ) that it had achieved the required amount of pre orders. it had never been announced that the whole project was viable and tooling had started.

  13. No the best way forward is just make a better model and get it to market first.
  14. I’m already saving for a hush hush, a rebuilt hush hush, a APT 7 car, a black merchant navy. A rocket. a Bachmann 90. And a two tender bittern. I have unrealistic goals:( I’ll probably end up with a SH railroad county
  15. There is a lot of that going on at the moment. I am glad you can afford the champagne one must be all that YouTube cash
