Hi Russ,

Nice job with the etches.  They look to be a very good fit.

Cheers

You know what this sounds really silly, but I'm getting very excited about the prospect of seeing all this at the Bristol show this weekend.

It'll be on display on the DEMU stand on Saturday and Sunday, so do stop by and have a look.

Cheers

Neal.

looks amazing, definitely counting pennies to see if I can afford one, even if it ended up sitting in the TMD most of the time.

Possibly as I dont appear to have any photos in my album at all - 180 place holders with titles but no photos in them.

Hi Geoff

Detailed look at costing here...

http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=21340.msg218084#msg218084

Basically 140ish in 100% FUD - but only after the chassis are reworked to cope with FUDs properties - inflexible and brittle.

SLS will be cheaper - note the various discussions about SLS vs FUD.

Crane will be at the Taunton show May 17th...
