Waiting for new DJ Models loco
« on: September 23, 2018, 04:12:29 AM »
 When will DJ Models ever get around to producing the saddle tank loco ?
He has been advertising it for years, but is still only on pre- order. ???

Dave is very open in that each model funds the next one. Or it did until he started crowdfunding everything, when funds were ringfenced.

In effect if itís not being openly discussed (eg King, APT, Shark, 92) then itís years away!

I don't know Dave or have any special knowledge of his business but even so the answer is quite simple. Dave knows what models he would like to make but can't invest in the tooling unless and until he has raised sufficient cash from sales of current models.
The crowdfunding route will, if successful, help to keep DJM in business by creating cash churn and hopefully a bit of profit for Dave.
Working doesn't seem to be the perfect thing for me so I'll continue to play.
