It's not a real class 17,it's an ancient DB v100 with a paint job

Yep completely different proportion to a class 17 (too short for one thing), and the Lima effort had a huge lump in the side to accommodate the mechanism. Don't bother.

[edit]
Something like the Kato DD13 might be a better basis for a 17 - with a replacement cab? Is that what the Parkwood model uses for a chassis anyway?

Guess we are all equally as bummed that the model got dropped.  :'(
 Hopefully it will get made once day soon.  :hmmm:

I was REALLY looking forwards to getting the ones i had ordered.

From what I recall, the Parkwood model was deliberately made short to allow it to fit onto the DD13 chassis anyway ?

I've managed to contact Parkwood & they still have a few bodies left for £16 including postage!

Throw away the motor, bogies, chassis, body, and any other bits left, and you have a good basis for conversion :D
