Hi Fran,

I’m just completing an 0 gauge 55017 model & my attention has been drawn to the fact that one of the Durham Light Infantry’s nameplates was slightly off centre ! Not sure which particular side of the loco  or whether Accurascale want to replicate this on their model ? Appears the loco had the nameplate incorrectly positioned in both green & blue livery eras. Kind Regards

Hi @DLIBOD17,

 

Many thanks for sending that on! Would you believe it is something we only noticed ourselves the other day? Gareth was only talking about it earlier in the week and something we will be tweaking our artwork to reflect. Excellent spot and many thanks for pointing it out!

 

Cheers!

It's great that modellers like @DLIBOD17 are so kind to go out of their way to help us too. We are always really appreciative of these observations to help us make the very best models we can. It's the power of the modelling community and RMWeb at work together as whole and what it's all about for us!

 

Cheers!

Thanks to Fran & all the Accurascale team for taking onboard people’s comments. It was previously unheard of to be able to communicate with manufacturers & for them to actually take notice ! Thanks lads ! The amount of variations within a small class of 22 locos is incredible & all credit to Accurascale for incorporating all these.

Has to be said also that the Deltics were pretty much iconic wherever they went.

 

I have been a 'closet trainspotter' over the years, but when I heard a Deltic would be in Lime Street - many years ago, I had to go ... and was definitely not disappointed!!

It goes like this.....

 

"Dear Bachmann  - why are my Durham Light Infantry nameplates glued on all to cock?"

 

The majority of modellers don't have anywhere near the same amount of nerdiness - yes nerdiness  - as some.

 

A nice  touch for the select few.

Is that a new dictionary definition: "nerdiness: the desire for things to be accurate  / correct?"

No Roy.

 

"All to cock" is the new "accurate" in this case :D

 

Ian

 

Ok ;) 

 

So they were wrong when they declared "lockdown" as the word of the year the other day and it should have been one of two instead these?

Fran you might want to include a note in the box of Deltic 17 explaining that the nameplate on one side is slightly off centre as per the prototype, otherwise I know you will get letters/emails/compaints of improperly printed nameplates!

 

Dare I ask if there is an update due on the progress of the Deltic?
