  1. That really shows how forward leaning the chimney on the rails one is. Surely they should have sorted that by now
  2. Looking at the Hogwarts coaches, they do indeed look fantastic. Just needs a little bit of paint to pick out the damper arms and springs etc.
  3. I’d question this so called “expert” if he thinks that.
  4. And the Hall class, the most successful of al of them I think.
  5. Quite possible. The last muck up with these MGR hoppers was when railroad ones were produced and boxed as the superdetail ones.
  6. Bloody hell that’s insane. Even the Gold Plated Clan Line is £50 cheaper than that on their website.
  7. Oh really? I never knew that. I thought BE was the only name it was intended to carry. May have to look at a custom set of plates for the BR version then.
  8. The difference with Hornbys Tornado is that it was designed exactly as Tornado, not the earlier A1 slightly modified to represent Tornado as Bachmann did.
  9. I was thinking the same thing.
  10. Yep I’ve ordered the same as you atom. They look fantastic working and I can’t wait to get my hands on them.
  11. Those look like they have a cream strip above the windows instead of the umber strip. Not aware of any that Hornby has released in this colour scheme.
  12. Is this some sort of organised strategy to kill off the competition by taking their top men? First Hornby, now Bachmann. I can see where this is going. Simon Kohler will be next haha. In all seriousness though, great news for Accurascale. Some of Bachmanns best models came in under Graham’s watch.
  13. https://www.phoenix-paints.co.uk/products/p174
  14. I’m gutted they aren’t offering international shipping. I’ve been attempting baseboards for years now and I just can’t get them as good and flat as I’d like. These would have been perfect and I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one willing to pay the extra cost involved in the shipping.
  15. Because you can guarantee the minute they started putting lamps on steamers, people would moan because it wasn’t the correct head code for the train that loco was hauling etc.
