Rob, it looks to me as if this one is not properly seated on the chassis.

 

A friction fit is relied on - I don't believe Dapol are gluing - so a little firm pressure at each end should do the trick and you should feel it go home.

 

I've tried but it won't sit square, looking end on the wheels are wonky.I'm returning it to Rails for another one. Here's hoping someone will show a good fitting one.

That's a shame, Rob, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope you get it sorted.

Lovely jubbly, when i started building wagon kits it was so the wagons were no longer uniform in height so this is right up my street.

This turned out to be a very nice wagon. If they ever do another run, I'll be in.

Hmm, not sure if there was a finishing process and one of mine escaped it, but one is noticeably 3D printed.

Interesting 3d printed weight.

Mine (SR brown) arrived today.  The body, detailing and decoration are excellent and better than I could achieve from a kit.

 

A previous post said the wheels were by Gibson - one of mine has a trace of flash, which I must remove before it enters traffic.  My other slight criticism would relate to the slimline tension-lock couplers supplied for fitting if appropriate.  Both the mounting blocks and hooks are very loose such that the latter hang low enough to foul uncoupling ramps.

 

I hope Rails can be persuaded to produce more models by this method to give prototypes unlikely to justify the cost of mould tools.

Oops, forgot my order had a now expired card on it, just tried to update and it doesn't want my new card - it did flash once that it had the new card so i will look again in the morning but have emailed Rails in the meantime.

Emailed rails to check on something else and mentioned the vans at the time. They said the SR ones were due into stock shortly.

I've just seen a brown one at the club - looks very good to me; the brake gear is exquisite. 

 

I like the way the NEM sockets are screwed in, ready to be removed and discarded, though putting a sprung hook and 3-link coupling in place of the printed hook might be a little tricky, given the way the floor sits behind the headstock.

Thanks again to all those involved with bringing this little beauty to market, a lovely model that is well worth your efforts!

Cheers from Oz,

um, nope.  My SR van was delivered to Switzerland last week. But that was only one of the two, since the second was already sold out when I placed my order.

I ordered both SR versions, one was delivered this week the other is still on order.

 

Dont know if having my credit card expire in the middle of the process has affected why only one so far or if it's simply because only one has been delivered to Rails so far.

Fantastic looking model!

 

When can we expect a pre-Grouping version? :D

I ordered both SR versions- well both brown versions - too and my order is still shown as "Pending" : very frustrating as I was one of the first to set eyes on the prototype models at York at Easter. ( "Wassat ? - looks like a 'Chatham' goods van.", I thought - and, unbelievably that's exactly what it turned out to be ! )

For those of us who ordered more than one wagon and did so as early adopters there was an offer of 5% off the price.

 

How will that discount be applied, so far the charges have been the full price.
