With my delivery of Mobil B tankers there was a leaflet promising a discount of £2 on each Sturgeon to previous customers of B tankers (I assume).

thank you, very much appreciated.  :D

It is dated "use by 31st March" so I assume that the ability to order them will be available soon.

Hi

I hope the offer will be extended for those of use that probably won’t have our tanks before 31/3.

Cheers

Paul

Thanks for the "heads up" I hadn't noticed that!

Unexpected but very much appreciated, I shall certainly use it, and with the discount on six I will be nearly half way to a seventh!

I think we designed the leaflet before we knew that the main batch of Class Bs were going to be slightly late.

Plus we'd rather show people some CAD before they hand over money!

So you'll see in tonight's newsletter (if you're signed up for it, or if you aren't it should appear on our website under News>Newsletter Archive) that we won't open the order book for the Sturgeon until we have something to show and then the discount period will start (if the Class B main batch haven't arrived then we will extend the discount period as necessary).

Cheers, Mike

Looking forward to seeing the CADs but your credibility has already reached the point where I would be prepared to order sight unseen.

A sensible approach even if currently Revolution have such a reputation you could open the book and be backed.  Could be tempting to make the mistake of going with too many projects and then a delay would bite hard.

Respect is hard earned and easily lost.

Best regards

I agree!

I do as well. For a first or even a second model I can understand that people may want to see some CADS first but I think RevolutioN's reputation for top quality models is now such that most will commit sight unseen.

That said it is Mike and Ben's call entirely and if that is their preference then fair enough.

The CAD will throw up issues such as stability and weight that could influence the model and its cost to make, so wise to hold off until they have the CAD.

I have just started a new build thread here http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=40866.msg498597#msg498597 to show these 3D prints fitted to NGS Salmons, so as not to clog the Revolution Sturgeon thread.  :thumbsup:

Was out and about today on the East Somerset Railway and spotted a rather rotten Sturgeon...







Apologise if they are iffy quality, taken from a moving train.

Would never have spotted one of these if it wasn’t for Revolution / the NGF and my daily does of education  :NGF:

Quite the opposite. The photos are very high quality, it is the state of the sturgeon that is iffy quality!!!

Great pics, just illustrates what a universally attractive and useful model the Sturgeon will be with some surviving to the present day on preserved lines.
