  1. Oh wow, that really is excellent, great to see it looking so good!
  2. Speaking as an N gauge loyalist, i think to be honest the void has really been filled by Revolution. Looking at the units available now and coming in the future, there's plenty to attract to N gauge... Farish though are clearly not even in a holding pattern any longer.
  3. Will do - I will be very interested to watch the build again!
  4. I was hoping to have them by now but I have been struggling with some supplier issues in the past 3 months or so that have pushed a large number of projects back. The current plan/status is as follows: Electrostars - chassis/bogies to be completed within the next month, test prints to follow soon after, glazing to get underway at the same time with trial cuts by September hopefully. This has been held up at the final hurdle by the aforementioned supplier issues and I have had to swap suppliers very late on, but as part of the swap I will be doing the earlier 375/377 versions (dual voltage only though). 175 and 180 - chassis bogies to be completed in the next 2-3 weeks, test prints to follow and glazing in hopefully the same timeframe. 185 - chassis/bogies within the next month, glazing probably about 2 months away 444 - chassis pending some details from an informed customer who will be supplying me with better reference material to get it spot on. 380 - further reference material gathered - chassis/bogies in approx 2 months, glazing to be reviewed at that stage 378 - chassis/bogies (effectively modifications of the Electrostar kit) will hopefully be completed within the next 2 months, windows at the same time. 333 - chassis/bogies to be completed with 2 months C3000/4000 - chassis and bogies are probably 3 months out being realistic with them. 334 - rescaled kit, complete with chassis/bogies - target released date of September. I am trying to move towards a "steady state" where I have the above models upgraded plus the following completed: 195/196/197 - kits in 00 and N. 700/707/717 - kits in 00 and N. 325 - kits in 00 and N Mk3 EMUs (317/318/455) - kits in N NIR 80 and 450 - kits in 00 I am also weighing up my options for the following but no guarantees yet: Aventras - 345/701/710/720/730 Flirts - 731/745/755 If I do do these I will have to change the way the range is stocked and ordered as it'll be very cumbersome to stock multiples of each model!
  5. Thanks for the spot - I will go and check, I have been having some issues with the interface when listing items, I will try to sort them out today and report back.
  6. Thanks for that - i was wary of the trap, checked once, checked twice got distracted and it now looks like a suspicious 70s accident repair. I will amend accordingly.
  7. So at long last, the first batch of prints have arrived. These are the 4mm trial prints of the Hillman Hunter Saloon and estate, Granada Mk2, Ital Van, Austin 1800 and Wolseley Six. Overall, I am pretty pleased with them, theres some small tweaks needed to the make the chassis on the 1800 fit without me having to manually file it down for every single model but overall great progress. Please excuse the cruel close ups.
  8. If you do get tempted to lengthen your C4000 just drop me a message and I am sure we can get something sorted. Keep up the good work, that C3000 looks amazing.
  9. Yes! Everything will be avilable in both scales unless it is already modelled and readily available in that scale (I hope that makes sense, if it is a duplication of a rare toy, I will release it but with the Oxford Mk1 granada etc, they will only be released in the scale where there is no competitor).
  10. Probably worth adding to the somewhat conspicuous silence on my range - there's been a little hold up getting the models to print in N gauge. Essentially, I am trying to find a viable alternative to shapeways at present which is the thorn in that particular side, if anyone has any tips they'd be greatly appreciated. I have however been able to get a trial batch of 00 gauge Austin Landcrabs, Mk2 Granadas, Ital vans and Hillman Hunters coming from the printers that do my 00 gauge multiple units so here's a little teaster of what is to come in about a fortnights time: Here's the list of what is modelled at present: Metro and Rover 100 2 door Rover 800 Rover 75/MG ZT Hillman Hunter (various grills including the Humber Sceptre) Morris Marina/Ital - saloon, van and coupe Jaguar S type Ford Cortina Mk5 Ford Granada Mk1 and Mk2 Austin 1800/3 Litre/Wolseley Six Austin Maxi Triumph 2000 Mk2 Austin Allegro and VDP The plan at present is to get approximately another 10 whilst I sort out the printing - including Hillman Avenger, BL Princess, a small collection of 90s cars (Fiesta, Astra, Escort, LDV Convoy etc).
  11. Wow! Darius, that looks absolutely fantastic.
  12. Wow, that really is coming along nicely!
  13. Thats looking great already, I will be watching with interest!
  14. Thats looks very good now - out of interest where did you get the "Spotrail" transfers from?
  15. Thanks - got there in the end! These have been in the works for a fair while so it is a relief to get them released at long last. There are a couple more that will be added in the next few days - Marina Coupe and van versions as well as Allegro and Mk2 Granada. Another month or so of crossing off the last cars on the list and then I will apply the handbrake on the range hopefully after enough gaps have been filled.
