  1. Seeing as my layout doesn't have an incline I'll be saying yes to the replacement bodies if they appear! Nice move, saves me reworking the logos. I'll ask the retailer about it, guessing they'll be request items.
  2. 37026 is in stock and available to purchase on our website www.mmrgexclusives.co.uk We have revised the price slightly, as well as the price for our 1980s/1990s BR engineers yellow BG. Weathered versions of both available too. Alex
  3. Ploughs are in stock and we're continuing to dispatch, if you're interested let me know via message. Also available to buy via our friends at Footplate and KMS Railtech.
  4. Re my earlier post about my 'ONE' 66587, the replacement arrived and it was a huge improvement cosmetically over the previous. Only a few minor issues that I could fix. Loose buffers, same wonky front valance due to flash, and a bit of bleed between the pink and grey on the roof, which would be hidden by weathering.. so I could have sorted all of this things out and be OK. No visible glue or residue around the bogies this time, so I was expecting it to run nicely. Unfortunately it wasn't, and the running qualities were up there with the first model.. really poor, extremely wonky w
  5. Opened my 'ONE' 66587 last night, I had to have this one as it's such an in your face livery and it'll make the steam boys at the club get the sunglasses out! First impressions on opening the box were good, but that quickly went downhill. I'll be contacting today for a replacement due to damage to the etched grilles and handrails, flash/obstruction/misshape on the front of the chassis block at No.1 end which prevents the bufferbeam from sitting flush, and the worst case of wonky wheels/rough riding I've ever seen on a diesel loco. This could be due to the axle boxes being glued on askew
  6. That's thanks to the gloss finish, they come off a treat.
  7. Nice bloke, helped me with several things in the early days, and some cracking products which I hope will live on. Sad news :-(
  8. Just ordered and paid for 22 XC and GWR MK3s from KMS Railtech.. I'm quite taken by these to be honest and as yet have nothing to moan about which is unusual.. apart from some naff livery application in the photos above by Bryn Jones. Hopefully mine are all ok. Scotrail set is on order when it arrives. Can't run anything until the club reopens after lockdown, but overall these look fab. Dirt cheap too, making it really easy to buy a rake in one hit. These will sell out I'm sure, hence why I haven't waited. Alex
  9. Thanks! Well we'll have the first batch of 37s available to purchase on our stand at Stafford show in a couple of weeks. Anything that doesn't sell from the first batch at Stafford (if I'm honest I'm not expecting to have many if any left judging from the interest) they will be listed on our website mmrgexclusives.co.uk shortly afterwards as 'in stock' for immediate shipment. BUT..!! All 12 locos will be available to order on our website and will be 'made to order', we have a production line going so feel free to drop me a PM if you want to place an order after Stafford.
  10. Hi Mike, We have a stand at Stafford so pop over and see us! No problem. Alex
  11. Hi Mike, thanks for the info. We were thinking of enclosing a set of Brian's etched plaques but decided to keep the costs down, as I wouldn't have wanted them factory supplied or fitted either so as to avoid 'wonky' or bad quality etches. The Shawplan plates should lay over the top as per the previous ones for those who want to add them. There is only one tool for these, and no modifications have been made to it from last time. To retool/modify would have prohibited this production run. Now that you've mentioned it I'll try filing the raised hatches and repainting to see how they look.. satin
  12. Hi folks, Just to let you know MMRG Exclusives will have a stand at the Stafford show in February.. stocking our current limited editions along with 37026 in pristine and weathered varieties. Also.. a whole lot more 'custom' split box BR Blue class 37/0s and 37/3s which will be available in extremely limited quantities.. maybe just one loco of each type at the show. I'll put a list up on here over the weekend. This includes four 'white stripe' versions we've had made specially for us.. custom printing directly onto the model by Railtec Transfers. All other work done by
  13. The ploughs will be in stock by this time next week, We'll be in touch with everyone who has ordered re payment and address details, and we'll endeavour to process orders as quickly as possible but please be patient! If you haven't heard from us by the end of the month drop me a line.. Alex
  14. Renumbering EWS GM stuff is tricky, even back in Lima days. I always repaint the gold band entirely after sanding down the existing printing as it's the only way to get a colour match. The top of the gold band should be exactly one 'rib' below the first angle of the roofline, level with the cab windows.
  15. Thank you Sir, appreciated. This offer is for a limited time only (probably a week), so no problem. Starting with the right model saves a hell of a lot of work.. speaking from experience here! We've let Kernow have some 026s as it helps us both out, getting them in the mainstream market where people might not see our adverts or know of us. A lot of people still haven't heard of our endeavours. Alex
