I have a chat with Dave just after the sale of SEF and there are things in the pipeline, but at that time nothing firmed up

 

I think the first jobs is to assess the moulds and masters, the etched side is being handled at Branchlines

I have a soft spot for outside framed locos and while I’m very keen for a new GW Armstrong Goods, an MR Kirtley Goods is tempting.

Which I magine is the old Ks kit. I already have two of these bought of eBay

But I'm guessing it will have a much more modern etched chassis!

Hopefully yes it will have a new etched chassis, but it may have the older style NuCast simple etched chassis. Two or three years back I had a chat with Dave at a show where he said they may use existing chassis where they had them in quantity, plus I don't think every new release has a new chassis

A 4F chassis will have the right axle centres but it will probably be too long and be more chunky than the 1F Kirtley. 

I was wondering if the AGW 2F bits would suit but it'll be better to wait and see what the partnership comes up with.

Thought I’d just share my experience with NuCast partners in the last week.
I needed a few spare parts to fix up a second hand loco which is in the rereleased range. After an email to Dave Ellis address I received a prompt reply with price for the parts I needed and following the bank holiday phoned up to sort out card details. The parts were then cast up and posted to me the same afternoon and reached me safely today, very good clean castings too.

All in all I’m incredibly  happy with the service I received for a few quids worth of small parts but still felt as valued as someone buying a full kit.

Same response me , I asked re small parts for a NuCast J21 which is not in the current list. Same day reply via email, the kit is confirmed  and still  not current. but they were willing to try and find the moulds for the  couple of parts I need. Very impressed with the  response.

As I only need some minor cab fittings and I dont think the Nucast kit provided many parts for the Cab area I declined with thanks ,and have sourced the bits I need via Dave Bradwells NER castings (another highly recomended supplier and response via email).
