    Lucky devil. With luck mine "may" arrive tomorrow. I am not surprised at how quick it has been. Anything bought from shops and businesses like Wizard, alan Gibson, and the like don't take a lot of time to get here. Purchases from ebay on the other hand, take a while. Khris

    Looks Good and duly ordered Khris
  7. Will probably add further iputus for the large retailers to keep commissioning models! The modellers and collectors get what they want and Hornby dip out....ho hum Khris
  8. I thought I prefaced my comments with: At the end of the day it is up to Hornby to get their act together BEFORE telling others how to do it. Biggest seller of model railways or not, there business model in recent years has NOT been the shining light to look up to. The fact that they cannot even order sufficient stock in the first instance is damning evidence that they do NOT have the capability even now of running the business properly, let alone forecasting their own needs!

  9. I haven't read the whole thread, nor the whole of Hornby's manifesto, BUT I will keep it short and sweet. I would have thought Hornby would get their own house in order first, including their quality control BEFORE trying to tell other businesses how they should run their business. If a business doesn't have mail order or internet sales, this DOES NOT mean they are not a quality business. Certainly if they are still operating in the current climate they are obviously doing something right! I am not in the UK but none the less am staggered at the amount of issues modellers have with Hornby product. That is not to say other manufacturers don't have issues as well, but it seems Hornby is normally top of the complaints for quality control or rather lack of! I would be surprised if this lasted to long, quite frankly. And me being me just would not be bothered with them! Khris
  10. Personally I wouldn't be to perturbed about the roof. It is not as if that got a wash except by the rain! In real life you really only saw the roof from bridges etc ....not like us giants who are modellers Weathering looks good and realistic to me. Khris
  11. Green loco's and chocolate and cream coaches I dare not sign this.
