I think you will be looking nearer the 150 mark for this one.


Full RRP or 150 discounted please?
If the latter, I may be cancelling.

RRP for Valance A4 is 151.56 so that would be the figure I would suggest for the Westcountry at the moment, would still be less than the Farish Merchant Navy RRP 164.95

I will make an early predication and guess that with discount, most will go for around 127.50

Yes, although both the A4 and MN were tooled prior to the swoon in the GBP so they may not be a good guide to BoB pricing.

After today everything has gone back down 3% again.  What a joke.

I don't think I will be pre ordering one as this will be the first pacific they will have done without a cardan shaft, they also tend to get colours and lettering wrong on occasion, so it will be a case of waiting for feedback from this forum and from magazine reviews.

I have a good idea of what Farish quality is like and Dapol offerings have been improving lately but I'm still cautious.

Meanwhile I wonder if they are getting the cab details right?






This loco is special to me as it's the only steamer I've been on the footplate of with a fire in its belly for over 40yrs.
Last year Hattons were saying due October November now they say no release date available!

I see that the pound has now recovered all the losses it incurred against the US Dollar after the Brexit vote. Hopefully this will encourage new product activity.

Not by a long way we are only 40% back on what it lost and only because the dollar is suffering

Like you I can remember the pound being a lot higher, but pull up a currency chart and you will see that the pound is back to its level immediately prior to Brexit and only about 10% below its average level during the 2009-15 period.

True, I always count it from the point someone decided it would be a good idea to have a vote.  :censored:

I had not realized we had made up the plunge the day after the vote.

Facts are useful. Personal political comments about Mr Trumps handling of the economy are not.
Please desist or a SWAT team will be visiting you >:D

I can imagine Dapol will be focusing on catching up with a lot of projects announced, the class 50 is not in tooling yet I believe so there is other stuff still ahead in the queue.

I still live in hope at the next Dapol Club Open Day they will announce a resumption of the light pacific project. If the class 50 improvements on the spec if anything to go by we will probably get a super Light Pacific with working firebox flicker light and sound ready with awesome pulling power  :D
