My Warships are definitely among the best runners.   If anyone is looking for one, Hattons have Druid (maroon with full yellow ends) on sale at 67 plus p&P.

Mike that is a lovely weathering job  8) Mercig certainly do nice looking weathering jobs. Any chance of a picture from the side? David, just got mine from Rails for 54.50, bargain or what? Back in my spotting days I also liked the Warships in green so will be keeping an eye open for a green bargain now  :D
Just been testing Druid on my incline and she handles my 1 in 30 no problem with her 5 Mk1's.
Really pleased with this loco so big thanks to the good folks on here whose reviews I read first before making my purchase  :beers:

Hi all

I see people have got their warships chipped, do they come with 6 pin sockets, or do they need to be wired in?

Cheers

Hi Tony, they come with the 6 pin socket so no soldering needed.

A nice close up of the front of D821 - it shows where all those pesky little pipes and couplings in the box belong :worried:

Excellent choice!  The 42 looks great and runs beautifully, I've got three and I'm sure I'll buy more in the future.

Just purchased druid in maroon with full yellow ends, a bargain 74 from the kwvr shop at haworth. Lovely model, quiet and runs well.

I have three and I agree they look good, run smoothly and pull well. My only criticism is that everything is a bit crammed in and it is hard to put it back together if you take it apart.

I love the warships and hope 1 day the 43 gets shrunk too.

Mind you I've now got 15 of them, 4 looked at by Mercig, so will probably have to trim the heard by then.

Cheers

Another way to look at it is only 23 to go for the full set :confused1:

I have 6, 2 Mercigged (not sure that is a verb!) and I think they are one of the best and most reliable models I own.

One of my Warships suffered a fall from my layout a few years ago and lost a windscreen as a result.  At the time everywhere I asked said there were no replacement parts for the body but I discovered that BR lines has replacement shells for D814 Dragon.  It meant a change of identity for my loco but it now looks as good as new, and still runs very well.

I have 'Dragon', 'Hermes' and 'Foxhound' as part of my hydraulic stud, small beer compared to Mr. Jones.
