What an odd photo on the homepage, looks like he was leaning on something which has been edited out!  :hmmm:

It looks like he's got an invisible midget locked in a wrestling move called the 'Full Nelson'

Former WWF and current WWE fans will know what I mean  :smiley-laughing:

Dave Jones is taking on a tall order but good luck to him though. How many of us has dreamed of owning our model railway manufacturer.

But I had to read his web page twice as I think he means about after sales service and stuff, I can't see how 1 man can compete with bachfar with the manufacturing side of things. Also I'm more than happy with my last 2 purchases of Graham Farish locos so I can't see how things can be improved.

I'm certainly no expert though but I will be following DJ Models

Ps He doesn't mention the N Gauge Forum but RMweb whoever they are  :P

RMweb? I have visited that forum many times and I  personally fail to see the fascination??
Run by a dictator whom is a commercially controlled puppet. Pretty grim part of the web in my books........
Good luck to ExDapol Dave if he's gonna ply his new found company there.......

Hi all,

Might of been mentioned as this topic on two threads but I think DJ Models is a bad idea for a name. Put ' trains' in there somewhere.

If you tried to access LS Models site (who do N gauge Belgian and French stuff) there are WARNINGS as it is also some Romanian under age sex site.

DJ Models !  :)

No that's not it, they're an insurance company, a good proportion of business is done on the golf course!

Most of the pages on that site seem to return errors, clearly still a work in progress, who's the sleuth who uncovered it!?

Hope Mr. Jones has a sense of humour or he'll be sticking with rmWEB (whatever that is! :D) and wouldn't go to the best site ever with a bargepole!  :NGF:

Don't forget that Dave Jones has been here once before, before he joined Dapol he had a company called N'thusiast Resprays, and he supplied kits as well as doing his resprays. One of his kits was a Tamper, which actually was very good and I hope he re-releases this as I think that is one model that is very sorely missed in British N, although Bachmann do/did produce one in HO, I wonder if they would consider shrinking it to 1:148  :hmmm: :hmmm:

Regards

Neal.

Yep, a very good but fairly complex kit, although I was under the impression that Bernard (of TPM) did the design work for it. I never got mine completely finished and must dig it out and do so;

I think someone needs to invite Dave to post here.

I lurk on RMWEB and the following is an extract of a post he made there;

"I have big exciting plans now which will be announced on Saturday 6th September at the TINGS show at Leamington, and on /in the media and forums on that day."

I confess that I'm a frequent visitor to that site also. But what I can't get my head round is the fact that NGF is specifically dedicated and has a huge following with N Gauge, in fact probably more so than RM.

Being overlooked by key people employed at these large companies is very poor PR!
