The headcode box is also to low on the nose-

Care to give me a dimension as to how much too low?

Given the known variation in the top of the nose, I find it impossible by laying straight edges on the recent photos to detected any appreciable variation.

Andy has requested we drop this discussion of possible errors with the model. Can we do so before this thread is locked on us please.

Not me, it was written by the guy who modified the model in Rail Express, anyway, It really wouldn't matter.

Wether I said 5 mm or half a mm I'd still be wrong! :)

We'll just agree to disagree and put it to bed.

Decided to film a quick look at my DP1

 

Enjoyed your video! All the variants are still in stock and this time around it will probably be the weathered of both dp1 and koyli that sell out first. I thought it would be sound but I got it wrong! Surprising so it seems!

 

Cheers

A couple of quick questions.

 

I've seen the term 'East Coast livery' for DP1. What is the difference between that livery and the preserved livery, and what livery were the very first Bachman run of these locos in?

 

Thanks.

Hi,  Coldgunner is correct - the roof is lighter and it has a pale yellow stripe around it.  The blue is also slightly different.  Not noticeable really until you put the East Coast Mainline version against a preserved liveried model.

Thanks for the responses. I have one of the original 'Platinum' run of 500 of DP1 which I assume is in the LMR/Preserved livery.

Locomotion have today announced yet another model of DP1 Deltic. This time it is in 'East Coast Main Line Livery'. I already have two issued by Locomotion in slightly different blue liveries because I thought the first one I bought didn't look the right blue so I bought the second issue that was supposed to represent its livery when in service. So I wonder if this new one is different again. I'm not buying yet another one to get the livery right!

As i read it there are 2 versions coming out .32-523 DP1 West Coast Mainline version & 32-522 DP1 East coast main line version.

 

There is a difference between the 2 at sole bar level

DP2 was a thing

DP1 was not a thing

It never existed.

 

There was a DELTIC

It's extremely well documented that DP1 was it's official number but wasn't carried.

 

It was also going to be named Enterprise rather than Deltic.

What is the main difference on the WCML version I would rather alter my ECML than buy another.

I believe the most noticeable difference is the colour is darker for the original condition.

I'll probably be ordering a WCML one, even though I've got a half built Dapol/Lima one from years ago lurking about somewhere.

Isn’t it just the Express Train titles that make it either West Coast or East Coast ? I don’t think the livery changed

That's what I thought comparing with my previous model even the lining looks the same the only difference being the red embellishments.
