Erm, possibly 😉...

 

Haha - I did think that but decided against it just in case it wasn't :P

but awwww, its only 4 class 90s, in 4 liveries Ive been hoping to be made for at least a year…

 

Yep, a month ago I didn't think that 90 Rails have dispatched today would beat the Deltic but it will.

 

Not a complaint though, if anything I want the 90 more anyway.

I will optimistically predict that I will get an email for my two on Monday next week, though given where I am, probably won't see em until Wednesday.

 

 

@Accurascale Fran All meant in good humour, not as pressuring. I live in nowhere so I'm used to long delivery times. 


Well if I wasn’t spot on! A coincidence I am sure ;). But that’s Black Watch and Scotty Grey heading my way.

Anyone else with a DC only model find that the decoder blanking plate that has the light switches on is inaccessible from the roof hatch? Most amusing!

Just catching up after a few days away, is the above correct?  Looking at support pages it shows/suggests you can from roof hatch removed.  Would only want to remove body once my early BR crew arrived.

I opened the roof hatch on my model and the DIL switch for the lights is not under the hatch, it's under the fixed part of the body. I suppose it may be possible to remove the blanking plate to set the switches outside the body and then replace the plate in the model. 

 

Why would I make that up?

We had a short delay with Nimbus, having to add etches locally. If your order is not Nimbus and its under ACC-25XXX then drop us a line to double check. 

My order is ACC 225x and status says fulfilled but I have not had a tracker etc would this be correct?

Very useful….. and guess who had put the main reservoir pipes on the wrong way round with cocks facing outwards not inwards….. C0FD46D7-C4FB-4484-B709-A94672CB876C.thumb.jpeg.f7637cbb1c4f53795519a674f20412c9.jpeg

 

And now I know where the exhauster drain pipes go too….

It would appear my Deltic has disappeared! Whats going on?

I had a similar note so enquired via the Accurascale helpdesk - in my case the consignment had been created after the last DHL collection so it is (hopefully) being picked up today. The helpdesk is very quick to respond

It's quite probable that was your deposit / initial order, and your balance has a later order number. The Balance orders are the shippable part and the one to check.

I’ve been left very disappointed after waiting so long for my Deltic, it arrived on Friday on opening the box some parts were found unattached but the main disappointment was the sound.  I suspect it has faulty speakers as there is a grating/rattle when power is applied which distorts the sound.  However I must congratulate Accurascale though for their prompt action.  After sending an email with video attached to illustrate the fault, I received an apology asked to return my Deltic together with details regarding returns all within the hour.


Wouldn’t that just have been a quick fix, just a case of identifying what is vibrating/rattling?  I have exactly the same sound issue (by the sound of it) but am just waiting till the weekend to take the body off and fully expect to have sorted it within a matter of minutes.

Hmm. When I click on that link, I get the Support page ok, but nothing to download or read. Does it work for others??

 

UPDATE. These links worked on my pc earlier, but now I’m on my iPad they don’t bring up the details. Tried Chrome and Firefox :(

Should look like this? Ensure you don't have ad blockers / etc/ enabled that might be disliking the embed?

No, I wasn't suggesting you were, I know from bitter experience of other manufacturers that what the instructions say and what's possible are two different things, and was hoping it would be easy.

On my laptop, yes. On my iPad no

 

Which is a pain. My pc is hardly ever on these days

 

Happy to help debug (and so far as I know, no ad blockers)

 

UPDATE. Tried Safari and Opera on iPad too - not working for those either

Absolutely !We're working on more content for there at the moment too!

I see there is one for the removal of the body/chains. Two of mine of have come loose off the body and wonder what glue  if any you recommend to re-attach. Also if you could add that to the body removal instructions I think many would find that beneficial. No rush though as you are all so busy.

On my iPad iOS 15.5 Safari loads it automatically but both chrome and Firefox have to be manually refreshed (pull down and release) before they both work. No idea why!

Very lucky today popped home from work for a few minutes 

Just heading back when I saw a DHL van coming in the opposite direction span around and sure enough he had pulled up outside my house with 4 Deltics.

Good job as no one was home.

It looked quite empty in the back of his Mercedes Sprinter once he took them out and I swear the van gave a sigh after, it definitely looked higher on the springs when he left.😄
