DJModels Ltd Press release

Firstly let me update you all on progress of DJModels products as of this moment.
N gauge
Class 17, 23 and J94 are all now in the tool room with the Class 17 scheduled to be the first release.
With Chinese New Year in the way of production, I expect to unveil this new model at Ally Pally in late March 2016 with stock hopefully on the high seas by then.
The 23 and J94 will then follow at around 2-3 months space between them so as not to flood the market and to aid cash flow for DJM.
Other locomotives announced are in final cad/cam design and should be in a position to be shown in late November.
NEW wagon projects listed further on…

OO Gauge
J94 is in deco stage and I hope to have something to show around the time of Warley of both commissioned models and DJM versions. Once approved they will go into production immediately.
Class 71, is now in second EP tooling, and I should also be showing this in painted form around the time of the Warley Show.
Class 74, is now in design and will not be for 12 months or so (projected).
Q6 and Hudswell Clarke are moving on in leaps and bounds and I should have cad/cams of both visible for public consumption / comments in late November.
O gauge loco’s are ready for tooling but are pending cash flow to be allocated to their tooling costs.

BIG NEWS!
Despite my saying for a few years now that I would not touch rolling stock due to it’s smaller return for quite a large outlay. However, I have done a deal with a new (for me) and respected factory, that currently makes for 3 very well known model railway companies (2 in mainland Europe) to produce 5 N gauge wagons at what I consider to be a very reasonable price.
It’s worth noting that all 5 have been cad/cam designed and 1 is, as I write, in the tool room with a release date for March 2016*.
These are noted on attached pages to this release, but I will list them here…………..
Shark 20t Plough van (Awaiting Tooling)
Mermaid Ballast wagon  (*in Tooling)
Turbot Bogie ballast wagon (final cad/cam design)
Bogie Bolster E (final cad/cam design)
LSWR Road Van (Awaiting tooling)

Orders for these wagons can be taken by your DJM stockist from Monday and a full list of liveries and running numbers /product codes are available via the DJModels web site, RMweb and the modelling press.

The Mermaid and the Turbot will benefit from my ‘Quick load’ ballast system. Simply put it’s accurately moulded ballast load that can be unloaded from each wagon without taking the wagon off the rails by using a stick with a magnet on it to lift each load out quickly and easily, allowing a ‘return’ unloaded service train to run.

More to follow

N Gauge LSRW Road Van RRP £22.50
 
Since designing this for Kernow Model Rail Centre and seeing it in the flesh, I have wanted to produce a model in N gauge.
So this is, in all honesty, a personal choice, rather than a profit led one. Mind you it’s one of those ‘I don’t need one, but I want one’ projects.
Many thanks to Kernow for allowing me to use their laser scan for this model, which features darkened profile wheels, NEM coupling, Close Coupling and separate handrails (where possible)

DJM-N-RS-100030A pre-1936 SR livery (Brown with large lettering) 54779
DJM-N-RS-100030B pre-1936 SR livery (Brown with large lettering) 54885

DJM-N-RS-100031A SR livery (brown with small lettering in bottom left hand corner) 59930

DJM-N-RS-100032A BR Grey S45730
DJM-N-RS-100032B BR Grey S54663
DJM-N-RS-100032C BR Grey S54924

Will it only be the Mermaids that will be offered as weathered, and is the intention to use a Mercig master or will this be a simple single colour wash?

Are this the same type of Mermaid that currently is crowd funded on Kickstarter ?
see: http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=24895.0

Is this duplication? Is the Kickstarter project dead now?  Just wondering….

Was wondering the same thing.

If the DJM 'Mermaid' has been brewing for a while it would have been nice if someone from DJM had had a quiet word with someone at CRS. At the very least it'd have given CRS the option of coming up with something else.

Cheers, NeMo

Looking forward to seeing these.  :thumbsup:

Will there be room for a chip and a speaker in the ZUV to play the jaws theme as it exits the storage yard Dave?
