Kickstart

Dapol 08

Recommended Posts

i too saw it, and was very impressed. The bonnett appears to have the correct taper, so far as I could tell. I'm greatly looking forward to it.

Hi

 

At Telford today Dapol had a few initial bits of the 08 on show.

 

All the best

Thanks for sharing that...looks lovely! I wish Dapol did an un-painted version.

A un-painted version is even my wish. I would like to create this version:

Here in Germany we have a small, but steadly growing community of British 7 mm modellers. At least three Terriers are now in Germany, and we hope the best for the future. 

 

Best greetings

 

Torsten

Any news on any other stuff from Dapol?

Dunno, but we can start taking bets on how long...

A ) this particular "Dapol 08 Thread" lasts before getting locked....

B ) how long before the sample pictured is ripped to shreds by the Experts....

 

The buffer housings look a tad short for starters.... :P :D (I'm kidding, ok? Let's go wild & assume it's a pre-production sample, not final tooling ;))

Hi

 

Seems they hope to have the painted preproduction examples in time for Warley.

 

All the best

That sounds like very positive news and real progress. Best of luck to Dapol and I am sure it will be worth the wait.

Not necessary anymore. According to Tower Models, Dapol added the BR Black livery to the first batch. Great news to my ears!

Looking forward to the 08 but even more so for the HAA's (I'm after a full rake).

Seriously? That's about £2000 worth of stock!

Unfortunately it isn't cheap, but it's that or build a full take of wagons.. Which I do not have the patience to do! Haha. I have access to a layout where I can run then which is a bonus until I build an outdoor track (been meaning to for years!).

Received an email from Liverpool today:

 

Hello

 

We thought you may like to know that an item you have on order with us, on order id 1611291, has had some information about its release date added or updated.

 

Dapol 7D-008-001 Class 08 diesel shunter 13115 in BR green with early crest and no yellow warning panels £169.00

 

Our latest information from the supplier suggests this item will arrive with us between April 2016 & June 2016

 

Whilst we are hopeful this information is accurate, manufacturer lead times are frequently prone to be delayed. This information is to be used as a guide only.

 

We hope that this email has been useful.

 

Regards

 

Retail Team

Received an email from Liverpool today:...

I also pre-ordered with them way back when, & prompted to check by your post have indeed had the same email.

 

However as my local model shop has matched 'discount' O scale prices from both the Liverpool and Blackpool Emporia, I would much rather support my local shop instead.

In a dillema.... :O

Apologies if i've missed this somewhere, but does anyone know what decoder Dapol are planning to use in their '08' ... or what they use in other locos?  I'm after a second example (have the Bachmann one already) and debating whether to order one with sound, or just a standard and add my normal Zimo sound decoder to it?

 

Any thoughts?

The sample on view at Warley today was impressive...... The buffers looked to be of the correct longer type, cranks looked nice - I'm tempted to order a second!
