If you’re going to get a first diesel you might as well start with the best :)

Didn't realise Accurascale were making a class 50 ?

:D
 

Edit.. I. Should have read the next post... but at least were all reading the same script.

A 50 would be fantastic wouldn't it

Forgive me for not analysing the entire 84 pages of the thread, could one of the Accurascale fellows advise on the likelyhood of Ballymoss having another run. It's the only FP white window racehorse I'd really like but understand fully should Accurascale wish to do another one next.

It has been said that current offerings will not be re-run - so no repetition of number / livery combo.

Thanx Roy.

Easiest to replicate then would be a renumber & 'plate overlay of Crepello or Tulyar (without Rainhill gubbins on the latter, natch).

If Accurascale indeed do another run, I'd like to see 55022/D9000 in it's current form in BR blue, plated head code panel and high intensity headlight.  Yes it's a repeat of the first run but not in it's current form, so it should count :locomotive:

I've been shuffling my pennies about and wondering if I have enough time to save up for another DCC & sound version?  I know this is like asking how long is a piece of string but do you have a approximate date when the finished product will arrive in the UK?

Hi Jools,

 

As per the last update, late Q2 early Q3 (more likely early Q3 at this stage) is as firm as we can be at this time I'm afraid.

 

Cheers!

Any more news on the Deltics? I presume production must be in full swing now if still aiming for July-Aug?

Will there be any air freighted 'advance samples' for review on here/magazines etc?

Hi @G-BOAF,

 

Production is indeed underway and we should have a full update from the factory in the next couple of weeks. Of course, once we have it we will publish it on here and our website etc.

 

Cheers!

A bit late to the party, but have put in an order for a pair of the sound versions a couple of days ago after seeing the video you put up demonstrating the pre production sample. I have only been back in this hobby for just over a year after 20 years away, but the sort of stuff you guys are turning out is the sort of thing we could only dream about back then.

Hi @Super-Sloth,

 

Many thanks for your kind words and welcome back to the hobby. We try our hardest to drive the hobby forwards so it's great to hear such feedback.

 

Just a mini update on the Deltic progress, production is underway and we are pushing hard to have these delivered in Q3. We will provide production updates during the process and keep you all in the loop as we progress, so keep an eye out for them!

 

Cheers,

 

Fran

Question for @Accurascale Fran.

 

Can I purchase my two Deltics from Irish Railway Models to simplify the VAT and avoid having to pay the courier an administration charge for collecting the VAT?

 

No, but you can shop on https://accurascale.eu

Out of interest, does anyone know what are the differences between the Royal highland fusiliers model and nimbus model, both in green with small yellow ends (apart from the names and numbers, obviously!)? 

Thanks!

Unfortunately the video ends rather abruptly just as they get to the Deltic. 

 

A complete version of the video has now replaced the original one so my earlier comment is out of date.

Video subsequently updated

Precedent looks superb.

Deltic ... we needed more information ... !!

Nothing actually moving which was a slight disappointment.

Very nice video and thanks for sharing.

18000 looked very nice.

Al.

He must have a strange memory if he remembers them without buffers :D

Also did not mention Gateshead Depot, as a Deltic haunt.  No mention of the close work with the DPS, whom own 3 - only a passing comment on worked with.  As to High Speed running, seems to not understand the speeds obtained on the railway at the time - difficult to compare todays system network with different track combinations and less pointwork etc.
