Seem to have sold well at Ally Pally, none left in show this morning, even Dapol themselves have cleared out at £24 a pop

 

Were all 6 versions available? Some retailers appear to only have had the first 4 delivered for some reason?

 

Thanks.

They are identical from both sides - the red handle points towards the ends when locked.

 

Cheers,

It would appear that the first four wagons were available at most retailers. Don't know about Ally Pally. But certainly Hatton only had 001 to 004 although 001 appears to have sold out! !

My order of all six releases is on it's way so I assume all of them have been released.  I was at Ally Pally yesterday lunchtime, Dapol only appeared to have one left then so they must have sold quickly.

Where did you buy them from as a lot of retailers still haven't had any at all let alone 005 or 006, or sold out very quickly.

I got them from Hattons.  I pre-ordered them quite some time ago.

I did as well, ordered 8 in total but only got six from 001 to 004. 005 and 006 to follow.

According to my confirmation my parcel contains the following, which is currently with Yodel (despite asking for Royal Mail).

 

1 * Dapol 4F-026-001 HIA aggregate limestone hopper 369008 in Freightliner 'Heavy Haul' green

1 * Dapol 4F-026-003 HIA aggregate limestone hopper 369008 in Freightliner 'Heavy Haul' white

1 * Dapol 4F-026-004 HIA aggregate limestone hopper 369027 in Freightliner 'Heavy Haul' white

1 * Dapol 4F-026-005 HIA aggregate limestone hopper 369002 in Freightliner 'Heavy Haul' green

1 * Dapol 4F-026-006 HIA aggregate limestone hopper 369020 in Freightliner 'Heavy Haul' green

2 * Dapol 4F-026-002 HIA aggregate limestone hopper 369052 in Freightliner 'Heavy Haul' green

 

Fingers crossed.

Given the brackets and arrows are the same both sides, should be easy enough to chop out the rams on one side of the wagon, leaving the arrows in place

Slight misunderstanding... A quick glance at prototype pics shows the rams are on one side only - when viewed with the handbrake wheel at the left end. Will do some more checking later. EDIT - a quick check with a model pics and it looks like there are rams on both sides of the model - a minor job to remove them.

 

The red arrows point outwards from the centre on both sides when locked. As Stevie pointed out above, the "Locked/Unlocked" labels are wrong on one indicator arrow.

 

Cheers,

Mick

I bought 1,2,4&5 at the show and there were other white ones on Invicta but not sure what ref no they were.

 

Didn't check the Dapol stand since they were £3 more than Invicta but they had a lot of green ones on Sat morning.

I got them from Hattons. I pre-ordered them quite some time ago.

When I asked Hattons yesterday why they have only sent four of all six I've pre-ordered they said they had not yet received stock of 005 & 006?

How do these run together- any issues? Thinking of getting a few but wondered if all ok before placing an order.

Yodel has just delivered the HIAs from Hattons and I'm please to say that it included all six variations.

Good stuff. Looks like you are one of the lucky ones. Hopefully their remaining stock will arrive soon.

They are right heavy little b*ggers so they run lovely. No issues with shunting so far having reversed them through the double reverse junction onto the Tunstead spur.

Well done Dapol on another lovely modern image wagon at a very reasonable price.

Behind a 70, I bet that's a first..

 

And the nice man from Yodel came to my house as well, but short of item 005 and 006... good start with six tho..

 

Much shorter than I imagined, but very nice...

It seems I've managed to secure some more from Dapol, but not nearly as many as I'd have liked - and only of 005 and 006 - so I'm guessing they are sold out or being rationed!

 

Perhaps a batch of de-branded green ones next? (and soon)
