I have sound fitted RSG in my basket right now.  Non sound also seems available to be ordered.

just checked, only sound fitted available.

having seen the samples at GETS i was gutted i did not bite. Luckily i jumped on this this morning bagged a non sound version.

You're absolutely right.  Non-sound now gone.  Like you, picked one up this morning.  I'll drop this sound fitted one in case someone else wants it.  D6700 also ordered while i was on a roll......

Ordered Royal Scots Grey earlier today. I missed out on this first time around. Managed to bag myself one today. Im so pleased ive managed to secure this Sound Version as well. Top mark to AS for allowing a few more to be produced.

I was rather surprised to log on this morning and see that there are some DCC ready editions of RSG now available, especially since there were none by the time I saw the post when the extended run announcement was made last week. 

 

Since DCC sound was available for a short while, I wonder if people have upgraded from DCC ready orders? Regardless I am grateful RSG is available again and I've just put my order in.

 

@Accurascale Fran Do you know how much allocation of Tulyar is left please? I was going to order that but RSG took precedence! 

 

Cheers,

I wonder if the same might happen with Ballymoss and The Black watch?

I would probably order Ballymoss as I do like the white windows.

Hi Baz,

 

Sadly not looking that way, but it is likely we will have some cancellations held back and when delivered a small amount could then be offered for sale. Cant promise anything but worth keeping an eye out for.

 

Cheers!

Rails appear to be sold out of their allocation of Tulyar (both versions) KYOLI 1980s (sound) and Alycidon (sound).

Not surprised about Tulyar as a Finsbury Park Blue Deltic.

The other two are also unsurprising given Accurascale's recent comments on how well the sound models are selling

 

I delayed my D9009 order too long, but the sell-out at Rails prompted me to get my finger out and order from the DPS instead :-)

 

...because D9002 in 2016 livery (ordered when first announced) would be lonely without a stablemate!

I can safely say your not alone in thinking that it needed a stablemate! They were ordered a while back from Rails in my case though! Looking forward to them arriving!

I think we’re all pretty excited, but impatient too perhaps

At a recent exhibition I was chatting with a guy on the Rails stand about the Accurascale Deltics. He mentioned the packaging itself is a marvel. Quote: "They've really gone to town on it" and "It's like they've made the box itself an event, like Apple do." Apparently it's enormous.

 

I'm not really one for unboxing videos or fetishising luxury boxes, but at the very least it sounds like this exceptional model is going to be very well looked-after in the post.

From someone who buys models to run them on my layout, a larger than life box that I need to store somewhere is not something I'm particularly looking forward to!

 

I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time ;)

A bigger than usual loco size box might well work well getting it past the 'customs inspector' (otherwise known as Mrs P!) in my house. I can say its Wiggle cycling again - they always use massive boxes even if its only an innertube or something equally small. Mind you they also enclose a complimentary packet of Haribos - how about that Fran a packet of Haribos with every Deltic purchased? :biggrin_mini2:

No worse than Hattons who use a huge shipping box sometimes for a very small item.

 

My neighbours have done very well from Wiggle Haribo (I can't/won't eat Gelatine and Haribo is loaded with the stuff; I do wish they would give options for supply of something else). Sometimes I've had 5 packs in one shipping!

(time for a cycling subforum on RMWeb?)

 

Very excited to see the Deltic packaging.

@Accurascale Fran @McC

 

If one were to want to post-date D9009 from 2016 to 2019/2021 condition (i.e. cast bogie frames ), will it be possible to procure spare cast type frame mouldings (even if one has to paint the axle boxes oneself, or has to paint silver springs black)?

 

How easy will frame swapping be, or would one have/be easier to purchase complete bogie sets (also something I'm willing to entertain).

Hi @G-BOAF

 

We will not be selling bogie frames as a separate part I'm afraid. As we are making wheel swapping for finescale a straightforward process swapping frames out would be easy enough for a competent modeller.

 

Cheers

Likewise, I saw it got a different power unit yesterday on Facebook, remembered I hadn't ordered it yet and then noticed Rails had sold out of sound so pounced on the DPS to get one.
