Good point Roy. :thumbsup:  I was going on the fact that NewportNobby said DMU.

Hard to tell if they mean the nbl warship 43's or the original hst 43's.
Either way we already have both though there will be detail differences I'm sure.

Could also mean HST Prototype possibly?

We have the recent, and rather nice 42 from Farish, but like you say most of the differences between that and the original 43  appear the be down to the internal mechanicals.

Just goes to show how challenging it is going to be bringing this data together, but since the votes were by way of PM, I guess Newportnobby could possibly go back to the voter to clarify?..

Cheers

Roy

Sorry for the confusion, chaps, but the voter did specify class 43 HST.
I had completely forgotten some of the Warships were class 43 ::)

OR do they mean the original "North British" build of Diesel B-B Hydraulic "Warship" which were allocated but never actually got TOPS Code 43 (Swindon Build Class allocated 42).

Given the Bachmann one is a slightly confused hybrid you could just renumber it. If you are really fussy for either case you can slightly tweak the roof detail correctly.

The largest prototypical detail error on a  North British warship would probably be it actually running rather than being in bits. They were relegated to freight quite early on for good reasons. North British basically never made the transition from steam (low rpm, a couple of mm out is fine) to diesel (fractions of a mm matter) and it's telling that no mainline North British diesel survived long enough to be preserved (one electric did and some shunters). Their steam locos on the other hand live on.

Very true, EP.
The NB diesel stuff had a very short shelf life

I am thinking that suggesting a Class 17 "Clayton" Diesel was probably the teeniest bit hopeful!! ;D

Typical.  I've only just joined so too late to vote.  I'd have  weighed in for the prototype diesels most as now available in 00 gauge - so a lot of the work is done.  Just think Deltic chased round by Lion, Kestrel, 10000 and/or10001, the Turbomotive and the gas turbine proto's.
