RevolutioN Announces N Gauge VEA Van

Recommended Posts

Towards the end of their life they saw little use by anyone other than the MoD - taking ammunition, explosives etc from Royal Ordnance Factories to MoD depots was a main use.

 

Even early on following conversion, I suspect most non traffic needing a van was in longer, newer, vans - VGA, bogie ferry vans etc.

Are there plans to do weathered versions of these. I thought there was talk of that in the beginning.

There do not seem to be any weathered ones amongst those listed on retailers' sites.

When on internal use did they run with a break van or coach for staff? I know sites in WW2 ran a shunter wagons and coach or break van out to the storage sheds as there were no staff at each location to unload / load the vans.

Hi there,

 

In the first run there are no weathered variants, though we are hoping Sonic will be able to produce these later.

Released yet?

When are the VEA out yet, or have they gone, amazed that if you don't get things when they are new they disappear!

Not yet released. Listed on many retailers sites if you wish to pre-order.

Can't decide if you want VEA's or Sturgeons? Get both and add a Farish Class 31 and BDA:

31113 Severn Tunnel Junction  24-7-85

They look like fairly fresh repaints into the Civil Engineers 'Dutch' livery for the version without side doors, i.e. where only the small parts at the ends were painted yellow. It would be nice to see this variation done in the future. I seem to recall a few reference shots for this variation on Paul Bartlett's site.

I had been wondering about buying these, could I justify them? Then I saw 1987 in the formations list Class27 Mossend Giffen

Hi,

Just had 4 emails from Hattons, they read:

Quote

Our latest information from the supplier suggests this item will arrive with us between October 2019 & December 2019

:lol:

Additional: I've now been able to check my pre-order and the emails relate to product numbers NVEA 001E/002A,B,C.  Unless there are more emails to come it would appear NVEA 001A/002D,E/005A,B,C may be with me sooner.

These were all pre-ordered at the same time, as soon as Hattons put them up on their website. Puzzling until I get some clarification from them.

 

Having taken a little time for calm reflection I have now completely resolved the issue in the traditional manner, although I'll be at the back of the queue I'll happily be sure of receiving my VEAs without a foggy timeframe.

 

 

Regards, Gerry.

I went to order some on the RevolutioN website, and noticed how many different running numbers are listed under each livery! Very impressive!

 

But do the different numbers have different livery details? (like the Hazchem stickers, etc). The preview image doesn't seem to change when you choose a different number, so I feel like I'm picking some out just at random!

 

I'd kind of prefer some without/fewer Hazchem logos so they could at least plausibly look like they might have been carrying something other than military matériel (even if that's the only things they carried in the later liveries, in reality)

Hi b h,

If you follow the link I posted on the 25th you will find:

Quote

The VEA vans produced in conjunction with Sonic Models are due to be unloaded anytime now and we expect to receive them by the end of next week. We’ll get them shipped out to our retailers and customers as soon as possible – if you have ordered direct from us and would like to save a bit of postage by collecting at TINGS then please drop us an email by 31 August* (so that we know not to send your order out!) and we will confirm if it is possible. If you place an order between now and TINGS and would like to collect at TINGS then please put a note in your order in the delivery notes and we’ll bring them along for collection and refund your P&P.

(*my bold)

If I could get to TINGS I'd jump back up the queue I guess, but seeing that my order direct with RevolutioN is now so recent and they traditionally work through them by date when time allows it could be a few weeks beyond TINGS, but from experience I do know for certain it will be dispatched as promptly as is practicable.

I'm sure anyone reading my most recent post will gather that in my view the "foggy" timeframe that part of my original order would have been completed by was entirely :lol: considering how long ago it was placed.

 

Regards, Gerry.

The VEAs have arrived (With us at least)

 

They will be available online later this afternoon (Once we've checked in the stock)

Just under a year from announcement to arrival is an impressive timescale, accepting that Sonic Models were already well on with the wagon when it was first announced. Well done to RevolutioN and the Sonic team.

They look excellent. I can't wait to get my hands on them. Hopefully they'll be delivered before my trip back to the UK in a couple of weeks.

All but one of the number livery combinations are in https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/vea

 

Whether the models have the promised different details I have no idea.

Picked up thwo maroon and two red/grey at The International N Gauge Show today.  Very pleased to add these beautiful wagons to my collection, I hope they don't make my old Peco wagons look too crude...

Hello all,

 

Just to confirm that nearly all the differently numbered wagons have  markings, hazard warning diamonds etc that correspond to photographs on hmrspaul's excellent site referenced above.

 

cheers

As is usual with Hattons there are excellent shots of each individually  numbered wagon on their site clearly showing the variations. Also shows how good they are......
