Obviously in your haste to diss a creative solution, you failed to research that solution, as if you had, then you would know that the above couldnt happen with the Hattons 66, as its screw fitted.

 

At least i’m trying to offer constructive suggestions, thats much harder than knocking everyone elses.

 

The model is what it is, as they chose to ignore the feedback from others too, but its there money and they arent the worst offender, it is what it is… and i canceled mine nearly a year back now as I was disappointed in how the end product was coming along. I’m interested, but neutral now, lets see if it reaches the bargain bins.

 

I fail to see the relevance of the Hattons 66 having a screw-on bufferbeam in the context of a comment about the Heljan Hunslet. Smacks of 'it doesn't happen to X therefore it didn't happen to Y'.

?

were talking about Hawthorn Leslie by Dapol last time I read the thread ?

specifically a gouge out of the bufferbeam.

 

but its all a bit too late to change it anyways.

 

so maybe move onto how to fix it.

Thin brass overlay with a few rivets embossed in it. A half hour's work, tops.

My fix for it is not to lose sleep over it.  It's a compromise that means I get a working model.  Your mileage may vary 🤷‍♂️

Just preordered a Port of London Authority one from Rails.


I seem to have fallen down an industrial shunter hole. Wallet is hurt, but not as hurt as if I were on a Merchant Navy spending spree!

 

Looking forward to this.

 

Also couldn't resist the Cadburys vent van to go with it. (pre-order)

The "gouge out of the bufferbeam" is a basic requirement for most potential customers - so that the loco can pull trains.

 

Being in a small minority has its disadvantages, unfortunately.

 

CJI.

this inf came from Rails this morning

 

https://railsofsheffield.com/collections/Dapol-oo-gauge-april-may-new-releases

 

April or May arrival expected.

That's great - gives me 2-5 months to recapitalize my modelling budget between this arriving and the Andrew Barclays I've ordered. Although won't be in time for me to pick it up on my next UK trip - will have to be when my partner comes over in May/June. 

 

Excited about this one.
