I have 2 maroon and 1 green, all with SYPs, but having seen Ditape's plain green one trundling round her new layout I'd like one of them.

Thanks for the livery list, Longbow :thumbsup:

Hi Longbow,
                  Thanks for the link, reading the article through it seems that the only thing to do is get the book by J.Jennison as it covers Class 41/42/43, then I've only got to find similar resource relating to Class35 Hymeks!!!. and anything about class 22!!

I love the Farish Warships.  I'm particularly fond of my green one, which was an impulse buy as my planned layout was to be BR Blue era.  Now, I'm thinking more in terms of transition era.

Anyway, main reason for posting is because Farish Warships seem to be hard to find at the moment.  Has this model been discontinued?

Not sure. It's only relatively recently 371-604 D832 Onslaught in green was being quite heavily discounted.
There seems to be one on Amazon and Osborns Models doesn't say 'out of stock'.

A few months back the weathered blue one was being sold at a significant discount

Was £64.50 in Rails of Sheffield 

371-605

Still a few about with some retailers but at normal prices

Well it looks like the Farish Warship will be sailing back to us.  3 new ones have been announced:

D820 'Grenville' Green NYP

D809 'Champion' Maroon SYP

812 'The Royal Naval Reserve 1859-1959' Blue FYP

I do fancy a maroon one to join my small fleet. 

On another point - when I compare my Warships head on to my Western and Hymek, the Warship bodies sometimes seem a trifle overscale.  I think this may be an optical illusion created by the FYP on my blue one.  Has anyone else had similar thoughts?

They look OK to me; here's one next to a modern Farish Mk1:

I suspect the very high cab windows compared to most diesels make it look big; the Dapol Hymek has a similar effect.

I only have one, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I'm happy with it.  :thumbsup:

The bodies sit too high on the chassis to enable the model to get around trainset curves without the wheels catching on the skirt. On the real thing the tops of the wheels sit inside the body/skirts.

I havenít looked to see if this is fixable as I need to build the layout first, for now my Warship lives in itís box.

I have my eye on one so at least @Ditape won't be able to tease me with pics of hers ;)

Mine are all SYP so far but, out of curiosity, are you comparing the Warship with a Farish Western as there maybe the smallest difference against a Dapol Western to be noticeable?

Strange that. I have 3 Warships and they all sail (soz) round 9" curves with no issues at all :hmmm:

That weathering was awful. I hope Farish learned that an all over grey sludge is not nice. I sent mine back, after pretending I could like it for a day. Horrible factory weathering.
Anyway, this will be the first pristine blue Warship with the double arrow in the centre of the body livery.
It had a short lifetime like this - March 1970 to November 1972, then the cutters torch in July 1973 at Swindon.

HTH

Umm, that's what Steve is saying, i.e. the bodies are apparently higher than they should be to facilitate tight curves.

Doesn't look too bad to me, though.

There's a joke about empty vessels making the most noise in there somewhere...  :angel:
