The wait is fine with me. My new layout build is going so slowly I think I'd be embarrased right now if I got my 73 delivered and nowhere to run it.  :)

Every time I see a post in this thread I think "Great - someone has some news on delivery" and then hopes are dashed. Like the Bulleid pacific I wants it, and I wants it NOW!
Both are long, long overdue :unimpressed:

It wouldn't surprise me if there was a 'fragrant' Sean Connery in that pipeline somewhere ;D

I emailed Colletts Models (whom I placed my order with) requesting an update, this was their reply:

"Good morning David i have asked the question at Gaugemaster and they are now saying June/July which year is the big question it has been going from one month to the next for ages best regards Leigh"

So it appears there is hope yet!  ;)

My dads local model shop and got to know Leigh quite well over the last few years.

Usually always very competitive on prices and definitely happy giving him our money, at least he appreciates the sales. Alot more then some!!!!

@Newportnobby

You still got a good bargain Mick Gaugemaster are asking £99.95 each for them! (GM2210205) Also I would imagine the value has risen quite a bit as well.

You watch no doubt someone will get 500 quid for one on ebay as soon as they are avaliable!  ::)

I ordered from Gaugemaster when they were announced but, of course, the forum led me to the cheaper price so I switched. Of course, the price may yet go up before it emerges from 'the pipeline' :uneasy:
