Just had an update via Hattons that these are due in November/December 2016.

Doesn't quite beat the Ivatt 2-6-0 from farish in terms of development time but it is getting close.

I wouldn't hold my breath. I had four release dates from Hattons for the Ivatt..

Seriously, it will take as long as it takes, but I would imagine that any new announcements made THIS year would be a lot quicker to materialise as the development testing will have already been done.

I bounced this old post as it has the appropriate title for my comment.
I was considering a pre-order for an early BR version of the air-smoothed version of the Bulleid Light Pacific and found that only 34030 and 34066 are being produced by Dapol and both are stated to have the late BR crest so there's a huge period gap between the Southern malachite green liveried models (up to 1948 with SR nos. and SOUTHERN on the tender) and the late BR crest which started being used in 1957.
Are the Dapol livery choices fixed in stone?

I know this is a bit late to reply to your post, but Osborns are doing Bideford as an air smoothed early crest version. So it should (probably) have the streamlined tender of the Southern era and not the rebuilt one. IIRC they ran without rebuilt tenders for about five years post war. That's why Farish never did late crests on the air smoothed tender models.

I am pretty sure that Dapol's selections are not set in stone. They recently announced that they were planning to release a Schools in Maunsell livery despite it not being part of their original line-up.

But if they do not see sense, Osborns will be a good choice.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

But at this rate I may well be buried under one by the time this model gets to market... ;)

I virtual beer says someone at Dapol had fat fingers but I am curious enough to go fishing on their FB page and find out.

Wish me luck!  :computerangry:

I'm still suspicious the Spam Can price is 116.10. This is a good price for a pacific if Farish's latest offerings have been anything to go by but I can't believe it won't rise. Hope I'm proved wrong!

I think you will be looking nearer the 150 mark for this one.

No updates on timescale from Dapol for our 'BIDEFORD' version

Full RRP or 150 discounted please?
If the latter, I may be cancelling.
