Great to see many fellow Spenny lads on here. We should have a reunion at the start of next month at Spennymoor Show. Wonder if I can persuade Oxford to attend in place of DJ Models with the J27.

 

Would be nice... then they can find out how much a J21 is bloody well wanted.

Mr. Ebdon with his suspicious looking tash.

 

Some might say politically incorrect these days! ;)

 

Rather like you can no longer buy kits from Germany with swastika decals, the days of the toothbrush moustache are surely gone. Thankfully.

There was a photo on Railway Modeller mag's facebook page with Steve Flint holding a decorated BR Loco. No tender attached.

It looked pretty good to my eyes.  Here it is below.  Just a taste to wet your whistle.

As I hoped, after the excellent N7, the J27 is not disappointing, and I hope to make several purchases. It’s nice to see the three link couplings and fire irons. How well Oxford are doing with this lovely model.
Lets hope that next a B16/1 is developed for passenger services, since we now have two freight engines - the Hornby Q6 being the other one. 
 

Best regards,

 

 Rob.

Large safety valve on the unlined LNER version whic would be early 1930's at the earliest , correct ?? 

Earliest? No, they were never lined in LNER livery. Balance weights fitted from 1932. Safety-valve trumpets hung on till at least 1936 - and probably beyond, but that's as late as I've ever modelled one.

Either way she looks excellent

I wouldn't go that far on the strength of these photos. Cautiously, I'd say the boiler-smokebox relation looks improved, but it's not possible to say if the cab-side windows and brake gear have been corrected. The frames are still too deep (too low between the wheels), but that's probably unavoidable in RTR - Hornby's J36 is the same.

Yes iI know they were'nt lined !!,  I see what you mean re the Cab windows a tad deep perhaps?. I wont lose any sleep over the frames however, as you said r.t.r , the Tender looks good too, and at a good price too !!

Not too deep, no - too small, and therefore too far apart on the artwork up-thread. But that is hopefully no longer the case. 

 

What was your question re safety valves?

Just the period of the large dome useage in LNER days !! . As to Cab windows, I will have to compare with the Oxford version against my Bradwell in due course, as above !!

"Delivery is currently scheduled for the liddle of 2020."

 

Retailing through the discount supermarket chain. That'll be novel.
