DJM Announcement - Crowdfunding King Class
« on: March 13, 2017, 03:16:54 pm »
An email announcement I received from Dave Jones:-


I've decided to go ahead with this, to gauge serious intent from the N gauge community.  Therefore I'm going live today and the sign-ups will have until Sunday 17th June 2017 to register an interest.


The 5 models chosen will be totally exclusive to crowdfunders and not be repeated again.

Models will be certificated and have the following specifications.

The model will use the OO cad/cam inherited from Hattons shrunk down to N gauge.




Specifications

Coreless motor

Next 18 DCC decoder socket

Sound speaker fitment space in tender

Removable tender coal load

traction tyres on rear axle but with non traction tyres replacement axle set in box

2 types of bogies for customer choice for track clearance

etched name and number plates

polished steel effect con rods

darkened RP72.110 wheel sets

close coupling (if possible) on tender rear.

12 wheel pick up (tender and loco)

etched fire irons

separate hand lamps within accessory bag

Loco drive onto rear axle from motor

Maximum weight possible within technical boundaries




How much?

Crowdfunding cost per locomotive 135.50 (no limit to the amount of Kings the crowdfunder can purchase.

RRP for loco when on sale in other guises 159.95



Payments for each model will be in stages if crowdfunding meets the amount needed to make project viable.  Only then will deposit invoices be sent out.....

Initial deposit 30.00 (this is non refundable)
Then 1st EP tooling deposit 50.00 (non refundable)
Lastly the remaining total plus 8.00 shipping = 63.50 (non refundable)


Please note the funds are non refundable due to the nature of the crowdfunding and the tooling needing 100,000.00 So please only put your name down if you are serious about owning what will be a fantastic model.


Timelines

From the end of June, providing crowdfunding reaches its required level, final design will start, taking approximately 4 weeks using the OO gauge cad/cams as the starting point. Once completed tooling to 1st EP standard should take 6-8 weeks. 1 month for review and comments, then the 2nd ep (production standard) tooling should take the same 6-8 weeks.

Decorated models will be produced using the 1st EP models to keep the wait to a minimum.
Production will be 4 weeks
Shipping 4 - 6 weeks including land transport to distributor, then 48 hours to ship to UK customers.



All phases of the project will be covered by tooling / production photographs and reports when there is news to be shared, and the ship name will be notified to allow us all to follow the consignment progress across the world.

Please visit www.djmodels.co.uk  and the sub page 'pre orders and other' to sign up for a King!

Thank you for your time

Even though it's GWR a King is just too big for me.

Now if it was the long awaited Mogul..........................................

My sentiments exactly.
A King is far too big for me I'm afraid.

Come to Perth in June Pete and see the class 17 models, hopefully painted, in the flesh.
Might also have another, or 2, N gauge goodies for you too see as well.  ;)

Interest registered. A King is not my first WR choice either, but getting it funded will likely increase the chances of a Mogul.

I'd be interested but until I see some movement on all the other DJM N Gauge models I think I'll keep my cash in my pocket in the hope the Class 23's move forward.

Yeah, I know I'm a mod, and probably shouldn't enter into this, but I wonder where the other stuff is first?

As I understand it, Hattons decided to cancel their OO gauge King after Hornby saturated the market. This left Dave with a detailed CAD and a possible production slot.

He mentioned on the Class 71 project that crowd funded models were separate from the rest of his projects so progress on the already-announced models would not be affected. Possibly the same applies here.

Incidentally, the Class 71 is now in production. http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/88264-oo-gauge-class-71-electric-locomotive/?p=2644240

I'd also be interested in a 71 for another project I'm working on.

Being honest neither loco's would suit me,

Like Bealman and Only me, I am waiting to get an actual loco in my hand (I have ordered the J94 and the class 23 ) before I commit any further.

This is right up my street for the layout I'd like to build one day based on the GWR Leamington to Birmingham line.

In a perfect world I'd have four of the five announced locos, but one or two will have to suffice. I've got a soft spot for blue with early crest so it might have to be that one and maybe the British Railways late crest as well.

Yes, it would be nice if there were some progress on the GWR mogul announced a few years ago (from my point of view that's the main DJM release I'd like to see).  And I sympathise with those waiting for Claytons, Baybe Deltics and others.

Would like 6023 'King Edward II'. But along with others, I would also like a Clayton, and a Shark.

.. Timelines

From the end of June, providing crowdfunding reaches its required level, final design will start, ...

So I'll wait till mid-June and see if there is any progress on other products before deciding whether to commit to this.
