With the news here that Heljan are likely to produce a Western in 7mm - perhaps we can look forward to all Hydraulics appearing RTR in this gauge. Anyhow I'll pin this thread and put together a list of all discussions on 7mm models, including kits. Please post links in here and I'll do the rest. Phill Dyson formerly of this parish will be very pleased with this news I'm sure.

 

Had been hoping to steer clear of 7mm (financially and space!) and needed strong will power to resist buying a Deltic, but life without a 7mm Western for me is just impossible.

Just as a lot of civil engineering in the back garden has turned my thoughts to 45mm gauge and live steam (and getting rid of the few 0 Gauge oddments I do have) someone comes along with stuff like this. Should these Danish fellahs happen to put in an appearance at the upcoming Swindon event I might suggest they look to taking on Accucraft and thinking really big :locomotive:

I see from the Tower Models catalogue that Heljan are considering the Warship as well as a peak to follow the class 60 so some time in 2014 or more probably 2015.

 

They are asking for advance orders and I could do with a blue and a maroon version - if I had the money!

Edited for updates - any links to kits welcomed - really good to see North British making an appearance from JLTRT.

Here's my detailed Heljan locos, a few warships will also be joining the gang and one of each of the JLTRT examples as well.

You can see my hymek being weathered by Roger Manton at Telford on the Saturday.

If there's enough interest then Buzz models are looking in to producing the class 14 teddy bear.

It will be a multi media kit using high quality resin castings

I will certainly be interested Steve, having built a DJH effort (never again) it would be nice to finally see a quality kit for 1 of these, something along the lines of a JLTRT would do nicely.
