KMS EXCLUSIVE O Gauge Class 47/7

 

KMS Railtech are delighted to announce that we are looking for expressions of interest for a new tooling Class 47/7 in 7mm. This model would go into production around the end of 2020 along with Heljan’s already announced run of Class 47s.

Heljan will be retooling the new 47 with all necessary modifications to produce the 47/7. 

 

We are proposing the following liveries: 

 

Large Logo (47712 only)

ScotRail Blue Stripe

Network South East

RES

 

This new tooling combination would allow us to offer the 47/7s in the following liveries either in a further batch or if demand is immediately there;

 

Parcels

Fragonset

Waterman

Blue Pullman

 

More information on the exact locomotive that could be modelled can be found on our website. www.kmsrailtech.co.uk

 

For the project to go ahead we are looking for people to Pre Order with a 25% dynamic deposit (the customer can choose to pay more if they wish). This will be refundable should the project not go ahead, but will guarantee the customer a model in the production run if it does go ahead.

 

We need to be clear, that this model will not go ahead without the commitment from modellers to purchase. So if you want a Class 47/7 for your layout, you need to Pre Order now or it won’t get produced! We will not be making additional models for stock.

 

The project is only viable to produce alongside the main batch of 47’s in the factory so we need to decide by next friday if this is a viable project and there is enough demand.

 

These are expected to have an RRP of £699 and will be available at the same time as the other 47s in Heljan’s main range, which are expected to go into production late 2020.

These are expected to have an RRP of £699 and will be available at the same time as the other 47s in Heljan’s main range, which are expected to go into production late 2020.

 

If you would really rather not pay a deposit but are interested, please fill out our online form here but remember if we do not get enough guaranteed orders by means of pre order, the model will not be produced.

PROJECT UPDATE

 

The response to our collaboration with Heljan to produce a 47/7 in 7mm has been very positive. Unfortunately the tight timeline to make Heljan’s production run made it difficult to secure enough pre-orders to allow us to go ahead with the project at this time. Sadly this means we have had to postpone the project.

 

However, all is not lost. Because we now have a little more time to prepare for this model, we are looking at producing other long range variants at the same time.

 

We have started to issue refunds to those who pre-ordered online, as we now know this model will not be produced at the start of 2021 as we had hoped. 

 

In the meantime, we ask that any modellers interested in the 47/7 project complete our expression of interest form which can be found on our website or HERE

 

Again, we’d like to thank the community for their support so far on this project and we look forward to announcing some other very exciting updates soon!
