Quote from: bluedepot on Today at 04:41:39 PMwhat does the yellow circle to the left on the van signify on the vmv vans?
It could be the ABN symbol but I can't make out the detail from the photo

it's a shame they are only available in triple packs.
if they really must be sold in 3s then why not make a variety pack?
often tops coded and non tops coded ran together in the 70s for example. sonic could offer a mix up of the bauxite vacuum braked versions.
I'm a bit fed up of this new trend for triple packs. esp. when it is wagons that ran singularly or in mixed trains. fair enough if they only ran in block trains.
quite a few people might want a one or two, just to add to a mixed rake, but won't want 3 completely identical wagons (ok, different wagon numbers, but otherwise identical). could at least mix it a bit with the labels and style (stencils or panels for tops codes, maintenance labels, explosives warnings, etc).
cheers for the pics btw martyn.

Lots of underframe detail.....................................never to be seen unless a derailment means the wagon ends up on its side

Yes indeed, thank you, it is impressive, the attention to detail is clear and differences between the two quite noticeable.
Replacing a battery is almost certainly harder than replacing a HDD/SSD, but nothing wrong with outsourcing it.
I've been sent these photos from Sonic of the EPs for the VEA (already released) and vanwide, which show the differences between the two.
In all three photos, the light grey EP is the air braked VEA, the light brown one the vacuum braked Vanwide.
I hope that these clarify and show the differences that Sonic have made between the two types on van.
Blimey! My brain hurts...
I very much appreciate everybody's input but I'll stick with my original intention to take it to the local laptop garage. I've never taken a laptop apart except to fit a new battery, and I don't intend to start now! I will report back.

To go with it's earlier descendent the Vanfit which Peco appear to have a new version of coming:
That is definitely a new chassis design and a bit much for just a Santa special.

A very nice series of additions to the RTR range. I will certainly be ordering several packs. (Even though I have some NGS kit ones made and more to complete.)
