I think they look good, I do hope they realise the yellow panel on the revised NSE where it wraps around the sides is all wrong.

 

Blimey I hadn't noticed that! They seem to have put a curve on the sides rather than the triangle, and the 'bonnet' top is all wrong too the yellow goes up under the handrails.

Oh dear…… I like 50s..... and was very tempted..... then I seen the class 33s..... hmmmmm. lol

 


well, I am having a 50, just for my 33’s to tow around. 
 

having looked at them at the show, my wallet will be empty for months to come with the 50 and 33’s

I think the 50s are meant to be at sea at present to arrive in December. It is, of course, a notoriously long paddle from those shores.

 

Incidentally good to see my efforts in doing the original 33 silencer weren't completely wasted as they haven't tooled that!

Tower website says the 50s are at sea and due to dock on 17th Dec, which is extremely tight to clear customs and deliver pre xmas.

 

 Bare in mind that is when they hope that they dock in Rotterdam and not the UK. Weather permitting etc.

I would not be placing any money on when they will arrive in the UK at shops before being sent to customers.

 

 It would be nice if they did arrive before but don’t be disappointed if they don’t.

Have you been invoiced yet? If so, what timeframe are you expecting them in? :jester:

Perhaps it's because I'm in a different timezone? :jester:

You posted a few minutes after the second post by Gareth, so the forum software added those minutes on. *seemples* :rolleyes:;)

Not that simple. The difference in timing between Gareth's and my posts (4) is not the same as that shown by the forum software (2). :huh:

Just a delay in the system, then. Considering that once we press 'send', our posts have to go through the Interweb, probably via a satelite or two, through the RMweb servers, get checked personally by Andy Y (because that's all he does all day :mosking: ) and finally get actually posted up on the threads, I'm not surprised there's a time lag. :no: :sarcastichand:

Surprised Heljan ain't air freighted a few finished examples over for the reviewers/magazines to cast an eye over to tempt people to buy them when they do land en-mass in the containers.

I think you will find these long awaited models will sell out!
