Whilst I appreciate Dapol's entrance into N gauge and a lot of good things that they have doen, I too don't pre-order because their QA has and sadly still appears to be very poor. So I too won't be ordering the IC one and if all the Network Rail ones are missing the parts pack, that neither, but I will email Joel and tell him why.

I have found emails to Joel do get answered, not always immediately, and if he get lots of polite emails, I am sure he will listen. I had hoped that with the new team, there would be more attention to detail on the Mk3's but sadly maybe not. Let's hope the TGS has had a lot off attention to detail because I need them all.
Regards
Arthur

They NWR DVT's have a bag of bits. They are not missing. The only issue was that the monitoring equipment isn't present. This would have needed re-tooling so wasn't really on the cards.

Opens up an opportunity for someone to create an add-on etch or similar.

Many thanks for the clarification. My heart sank when I thought both DVT's had problems. Hope someone does the etch. It might be worth suggesting to Dapol rather than a retool for things like this, they could be in the bag of bits as an etch. They have put etched nameplates in quite a few products. Or is the etch required something complex?
