It all seems to have gone a bit quiet from Dapol? Does anyone know when these are likely to land in the shops? ( can’t wait to get my hands on one!)

Well some time ago (see earlier in this thread) they said end of this year/early next year and they aren’t usually earlier than expected...

From first EP to delivery seems to range from about 9 months to 15 months based on observation of the different companies.  Given first EP was end of March (based on first post in this thread), that would make delivery likely early? next year, maybe December this year if everything went smooth.

Me neither! I've just been looking at Tower Models' web site and saw this news update from 20th December 2018:

 

"Release schedule updates.

 

Couple of updates from Dapol today in regard to forthcoming releases.

 

Dapol Class 122 - In production, expected February

Dapol Class 121 - Expected April or May dependant on the delays due to Chinese New Year"

 

(In addition, here's some info on other expected releases from the same news update):

 

"Dapol Sentinel - Decorated Test samples hopefully at Bristol show, expected April or May

Dapol Class 08 (Later body) - Now expected second quarter 2019

Dapol 48xx / 14xx Autotank - First test samples hopefully at Bristol Show, release second or third quarter 2019

In regard to the forthcoming re-run and Limited EditionTower Models tankers sets, Dapol have now received some but not all of the decorated test samples. Once they have had and approved all of the test samples they should be going into production so hopefully available in March so long as they are all approved".

 

Start saving guys and girls!

 

 

Regards

Can Anybody confirm which 122 will be Green with Speed Whiskers?

 

Dapol catalogue shows 7D-015-002 as W55000 with Speed Whiskers

 

Hattons and Tower show 7D-015-005 as W55004 with Speed Whiskers. However with Hattons the DCC fitted and sound fitted versions show 7D-015-005 as W55000 with SYP and 7D-015-002 as W55004 with Speed Whiskers.

I think you would have to go directly to Dapol for the definitive answer. Saying that, Tower are normally very much on the ball when it comes to things like this, so I would be tempted to suggest that they are the retailer that have the most accurate information. Probably worth a phone call to them - I'm sure they can clear it up for you.

Tower Models website "latest news" 24th October 2018 gives an update from Dapol.  Basically the versions were switched. C'est la vie!

I hope they turn up this time, seems everytime they are due they are late. I don't mind waiting, but I wish they would keep to a set date.  Half way through June and still no word yet so we will see.............

At the Doncaster GOG show on 1st June, I asked one of the staff on the Dapol stand when the Class 122s would be available.

His answer was that they were in production at the moment and would be in the shops at the end of August or the beginning of September.

I asked if this applied to the DCC sound versions also and he said yes, but maybe a couple of weeks later.

He did say that the 122s were coming first, followed by the 121s later, but didn't say how much later.

You are correct, it says that in the Tower Models advert.

 

Cheers, Ade.

 

As far as I can see it says "Autumn 2019" on Tower Models website. 

 

Flip a coin I guess!

I wouldn't necessarily go by that as their website still say the new Dapol 08 will be available 2nd Quarter 2019 which we are now past. It seems they are not always on top of updating their website. That's not a criticism by the way, just an observation.
