  1. Hi Hal, thanks for the heads up, but it would involve more than the sides and I am having to curtail ‘kit building and bashing’ due to eye problems, hence going for the RTR option. kind regards Mike
  2. I have four of these coaches and a very pleased with them. I ordered a Darstead RMB to run in the rake, expecting coupling issues as noted above, but there are height issues that cannot be dealt with so the RMB is being returned and I will have to wait and hope that Dapol bring out an RMB of their own in due course. regards Mike
  3. Mine arrived at the weekend and I have now numbered it - HMRS Pressfix weathering to follow shortly and a first for me, a driver, from the wonderful Modelu range although he has had drastic surgery on his legs to get him into a comfortable sitting position, hope the real BD didn't suffer in the same way. regards Mike
  4. Hi Brian, the photos are of the development model, when released it will be a complete kit with the details, Slater's wheels and a Slater's SG38 motor/gearbox. We wait with bated breath for the launch. regards Mike
  5. Hi Martin, I Hope that you and yours are well. There is another model coming out later this year for the 07, see here https://aldmodels.co.uk/shop/ols/products/ruston-hornsby-class-07 might be worth a look see around July. regards Mike

  13. Hi Chris's, A winner for sure, well done. Will the headcode letters/numerals also be on the Railtec sheet? Will the running lights be wired up? Stay safe and well regards Mike
  14. Hi Phil, back in October 2018 I installed an ESU V4XL into a Heljan 47 for a fellow Club member and discussed the fan speed problem with SWDigital who had supplied the decoder. Their response was that on some Heljan diesels there is a 'pot' which can adjust the speed or if the 'pot' is not present, set CV31 = 16 CV32 = 0 CV294 = 0 - 31 (output speed) I adjusted the CVs and yes it does control the speed, but as stated elsewhere here, a certain amount of sound is still heard. I hope this is of interest. Stay safe all. regards Mike
