Battle of Britain/West Country pacifics
« on: September 13, 2013, 10:25:33 pm »
Did anyone by chance ask Dapol at the weekend when we can expect to see these new releases on our layouts? I'm trying to avoid having to buy 2 or 3 of the Farish versions unless I really have to! :worried:

Over-user of brackets and quotation marks.

Sorry - hope I didn't get anyone excited and thinking some progress has been made as I've just checked the 'Dapol Progress' site (there's a misnomer if ever there was one) and it's still at CAD/CAM review stage.
Out of curiosity I just checked when I placed my pre-order and it was 1st May 2012!!!!
Price then was 95.95 and I see it's now at 105.00.
I reckon I'll be old and doddery before it arrives............oh wait, I am already ::)

Well you did get me excited :doh: But only for a moment... :'(

Unfortunately it seems (based on reading another thread) that the pre-order price may not even be honored :veryangry:

So plenty of time for a few more price hikes before we see them in retail stores...

I think I will be old and doddery before they arrive as well. I have a Farish Merchant Navy on order and that seems to be taking forever to arrive as well.

It could be issued in a job lot with the Schools and the GF Merchant Navy.   ???

At least this way you have enough time to save your pennies....

I have 2 x rebuilt MN (old Farish) and have the N class on pre order but am not after a Schools. I just wanted a spam can and, being very patriotic, 'Spitfire' fitted the bill admirably.

I'm thinking of changing my Dapol version to a Farish version which is due May-June. Although the Farish version is quite a bit more expensive.

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Trouble for me is that the Merchant Navies didn't normally run west of Exeter and usually had at least 12 on. The Light Pacifics were more modest machines and would be perfectly feasible with just a 3-coach set. Sadly the latest I have heard for the Light pacifics is that they are still around 12 months away. :(
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Now if you modelled 1930s you wouldn't need to worry about spam cans, just stock up on T9s, 700s, and 0395s with a few M7s thrown in and a few moguls if/when they get here, do a bit of hacking for more Drummond and Adams classes; and all in a nice dark olive livery, none of that hideous Malachite.

Trouble is, Mike, I'm modelling the transition era in Oxfordshire so there's a limit I can get away with - hence wanting a late crest B.o.B.
