General question about the 56.

Which is considered the 'Number 1 end', the grille / fans end or the opposite end?

 

Al.

The end with the fans.

Thanks Roy.

I've a Cavalex on order, and have just recently purchased a near-perfect 'used' Hornby large logo one, so wanted to know which end to fit the 'extras' to.

Probably my ignorance, but why is one in a darker material from the others?

I'll just park this here from Saturday night...

Flickr link, so click for more details.

 

Those first shots look brilliant, really looks to capture the 56 and variation between cast and fabricated cabs. 

 

Now the big question, how long before it gets shrunk to the proper scale so Cav can have some for his trainset? Of course, the rest of us may benefit too.

Different base plastic used, they will all be primered before painting/printing. In theory you can make models from any colour plastic, just depends on what their final colour will be

They do look fantastic, the subtle differences between the Romanian and UK builds are noticeable even in their nude EP state.  Should be worth the wait.

Oh yes ....do Romanian ones have prototypical dodgey wireing?

I hope not.  I must admit I always preferred the look of the original Romanian build, the later BR built examples, although probably more reliable, didn't look as stylish to me.
