DJ Models APT crowdfunding campaign
« on: November 25, 2017, 04:15:38 pm »
Details are scant at the mo, but Daveís announced an APT at Warley, to be crowdfunded.

Iím tempted I must say, depending on pricing etc, despite being well out of my era.

Great, I've always wanted to get one to repaint to NSE livery (fictitious of course). :claphappy:

Crowdfunding does seem to be catching on.

Good to hear that DJM is looking ahead and planning more but it'd be just brilliant to learn when we may see some of the long-awaited kit. For example, his Class 23 Baby Deltic.

Heís announcing models like theyíre going out of fashion, whilst still not really delivering anything. Worries me still.

Crowdfunding does not impact Dave's cash flow like the DJ Models ones do. He has said all along that one item will fund the next as regards his own output.

Over-user of brackets and quotation marks.

Wondering how many pedants can dance of the head of a pin.

When I worked at Paddington in the late 1970s someone shared the APT-P livery proposal with us  I remember someone suggesting the grey should be replaced with mid-blue. I drew one up on a bit of white cardboard. Would have made a good NSE variant.

I was hoping someone would produce one of these eventually - a very stylish train. I do wish Dave success with this venture.

Crowdfunding does not impact Dave's cash flow like the DJ Models ones do. He has said all along that one item will fund the next as regards his own output.

However, Dave has announced on RMWeb that DJM will be designer, manufacturer (presumably manufacturer liaison with the factory, (he won't be building them himself) and supplier. Irrespective of the funding angle, there is a risk that there are lots and lots of announcements (crowd-funded or otherwise) but only one DJM. Deferred risk or not, the more announcements made against the ever growing backlog, the thinner he will be spreading his time and resources.

Will it come to fruition? I do hope so; but for the moment, this is something else to add to the list of 'promised'.

Heís also announced that his second batch of Mermaids are delayed indefinitely because he canít get a slot at the factory, this must be the 6th or 7th model announced versus part of one delivered. Thatís literally years of backlog even if he manages to get them all to that stage.

Went back to the DJM stand today to see what had been announced and to be honest was a tad underwhelmed. Good luck to all involved but not a model for me.

I didn't stop to look at the pricing while I was at Warley but just saw the big poster on Facebook,  it does look to offer a pretty high spec, but £549.95 for a 5 car set up to £899.95 for the 14 car one may be a bit on the steep side for some.

Good luck as I say, but I'll just sit tight and wait for the mainstream DJM Claytons!

Hi

Price seems reasonable but like others I am concerned regarding the amount of announced products against what's actually been delivered.

Cheers

why is it so expensive?   a 5 car super voyager or hst isn't that much is it?  i mean i know this is limited to 1000 or whatever and crowd funded but still?   does it actually tilt or something?

I am with you on this the Revolution 11-car Class 390 is nowhere near this (or has my credit card recovered), although the Farish Blue Pullman was pushing £300+ at 2013/4 prices (£400 in the pack) for a 5 Car Set so £900 isn't actually unrealistic with increasing costs and a new tooling (scarry though).

I await more details before deciding.
