If you're patient I would expect Graham Farish to release one in BR Blue, eventually.

I think the timing will still be be just after I repaint one! and as for patience its not my strong point.

I have just been given a Hawksworth 1st/3rd corr'comp' in C&C as a present by my wife.

What a really stunning model (the coach that is)   I had read reviews in the model press but tend to be my own judge on these things. They were spot on with their reviews of these coaches though.  I fancy a full brake now....

The Hawksworth full brake is indeed a lovely model and well worth the high price. The only fault I can find is that the characteristic blue axlebox covers are actually painted too high.

My BR Crimson & Cream Hawksworth BG with a WR BR Standard BCK at Cant Cove.

Well spotted, Chris. I hadn't noticed, but my crimson and cream version is the same.

I have the crimson/cream Full Brake. It really is a superb model. Again the bar has been raised with these coaches in my humble opinion. Let's hope we see Thompsons next to an equally high standard (The NGS Full Brake will be an indication of what we could expect should they choose to go for the passenger vehicles).

Only the top half of the axle box was painted, the bottom half which contained the oil and the pad was removable, and remained black.

Many thanks, Alex. I had remembered seeing the axleboxes as being all blue. It's good to know that Dapol got that right after putting erroneous First Class window stickers in the Maunsell BSKs.

Best regards,
Chris

Farish got it right - the Hawksworth is a Farish model!

My apologies to Bachmann (Graham Farish), Roy.

Does anyone know if Graham Farish (Bachmann) plan to produce the Hawksworth coaches in BR Lined Maroon livery? I would have thought that a more popular choice then BR Crimson & Cream which is less suitable for the popular BR WR Steam / Diesel Transition Era. I would certainly buy some.

I haven't heard of any such plans which is quite odd. You would have thought they would be keen to cash in on the tooling. Maybe someone could ask at Warley.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Hopefully the upcoming Castle will be an incentive for Farish to release some maroon versions.

Completely agree - I would get an assorted rake if/when they appear in BR Maroon. Plus of course a BG in Maroon and/or Blue.

I would also love a Hawksworth SK in Blue/Grey as 3 of them made it into this livery (see link below). I assume the SK would be the same coach as the original 3rd Corridor?  Even more unusual, according to this site, 3 composites appeared in Brunswick Green in 1961...

I hadn't realised about the green Hawksworths until I saw one modelled as part of a DMU at the Warley model rail exhibition recently.

But I'll be content with a selection of maroon Hawksworth coaches.
