lol, no not at all guys,

The pics are exclusive to BRM/RMW which is why they aren't on my website either.

Once i get the Mermaid back (it came in and went out immediately to the press) i'll take pics and post them here.
Apologies but it was part of an exclusivity deal i had with them that's finished from this model.

Cheers

Thanks for that, Dave.
Any clue as to how long after the pristine ones arrive for the weathered version please?
Time for a progress update on your website, too? :telloff: :D

A few bridges to cross first mate.

getting Mercig to weather them is one thing, but i need to get the factory to emulate the master weathered Mermaid wagon that Mercig will produce.

Unfortunately the factory thinks weathering is a simple 1 colour , 1 pass of the airbrush thing (and that's a really ugly thing with no finesse like other companies do), and they will need teaching, which i shall probably do when i'm out there in a couple of months.

Once i'm happy with their weathering i'll sign off on production, but not before so i cant really give a time frame, sorry.
cheers

Dave,
Well done on the weathering front - a battle but well worth it as we know Mercig work is top!
and yes! how infuriating the splurge of rail grime/rust is called "weathered."

more strength to your elbow

Pictures of the Mermaid EP samples are on the DJM site now. The first set of pictures were RMweb/Warner exclusive, I think.
http://djmodels.co.uk

According to a post from Dave that appeared on RMweb a few days ago the artwork is being worked on and production might happen this year (in about 6 weeks, maybe, you know, time is a weird thing).

Dave Jones was at Quorn today with the EP of the Mermaid (on the Kernow Stand).

I had a good look at it, including being allowed to handle it.  As a direct result I crossed the aisle to Sherwood Models- and upped my pre-order from three to six......

He also had the airfreighted review samples of the first OO J94s to come off the production line, and decoration samples of RMWeb's J94 and his OO Class 71.   The first OO J94s will be here in August- these are the models that pay for tooling and production of the N-gauge Classes 17 and 23.

All the very best
Les

I'm hoping the J94 sells well (and I'm doing my bit with a pair of standard DJM ones, a Hattons and the RMWEb special, all for "No Place") as Hawthorn Dene could do with Class 17s on the main line, and WD saddletanks and a Hudswell or two in the colliery, plus a Q6 or several on the coal trains.

Such a shame that we have to rely on the "broad gaugers" to finance the Claytons etc.
Waiting with bated breath for MY pair of Claytons also !
