  2. Hi, yes it is one of the type that Bachman produce, the ex LMS Diag D2046 - the give away is the centre window in the end, it is a drop light. regards Mike
  3. Copied from the Minerva website this evening Our shipping agents in Hong Kong have confirmed that 3 pallets of the Class 14 models shipped on Friday 3rd September as below. CMA CGM BOUGAINVILLE/0FM83W1MA ETD HK 3 SEP ETA SOU 6 OCT With an estimated arrival in Southampton of the 6th October, the latest we should receive them is around the 10th-12th of that month. However they are still trying to secure one pallet to come via airfreight, but have advised that there is at least a 3 week delay, due to the backlog of goods awaiting an aircraft. We have agreed to make a decision about waiting next Monday (13th September) as if we cannot get an earlier flight, the models arriving by sea will get here first….which rather destroys the reasoning for paying the premium in the first place! We will update further as and when we have more news. Chris regards Mike
  4. Here is mine, expecting the postman to deliver the YouChoos/Zimo decoder etc today. it will be 31 421 Wigan Pier. Lets hope that the announced Inspection Saloon is up to the mark when it arrives. regards Mike
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Hi Brian, looks very interesting, will you be doing a build review? Stay safe and well Mike
