Dapol 57xx pannier tank
« on: February 02, 2019, 12:58:17 PM »
 :searchingsign:

Afternoon everyone, just slogging through all the renumbering of our fleet, this 57xx is the latest on the bench to get the treatment before chipping and gracing the layout, the smokebox number is already done, fox do various sets that I can make up my own out of BUT these panniers have a nice plate with the 4 numerals on. I need to replace these with my chosen number.

WHERE ON THIS EARTH CAN I FIND THEM  :hmmm: :doh:

Modelmaster used to be the place for these. No idea what the current situation is with the Society and Modelmaster, and who can sell what.

Hmmmm thanks Bob, I was on the NGS shop earlier but all decals listed on there are for their kits and clearly state Not Modelmaster

@NGS-PO Scott, any chance you could flash a glimmer of light on the situation currently??

I've just been onto the NGS Forum and I see that its being dealt with by the Committee right now, just not in the public domain, as there are contractual things to agree between Modelmaster and the NGS (again).

I feel your pain as I (and I imagine many others) want access to these materials too.

Well there's no rush, I'll just leave her running around with 2 different numbers on. It's not like she will be seen anytime soon!!!

Back to the MN and N class backlog then!!

Wow!!!!!

Great recommendation Alex, £3.20 free postage for my 2 plates. 4 - 6 weeks but a small price to pay when they are that price!!!

I'll let everyone know when they arrive. I dont reckon I'll wait that long!!

Fox have a largely expanding range of (very good quality) etched plates. Maybe a bit late now, but worth noting for future.

They have some 57xx number plate sets:

Thanks Alan, I use Fox all the time and couldn't find any on there, however clearly looking in the wrong place.

We're you after a SOUTHERN smokebox door plate Alan? Remember reading someone somewhere wanting one.

Narrow Planet make them in Red or Black for £5.25!!!

On the Fox home page there's an "Etched Products BRASS & STAINLESS STEEL" link right in the centre. That'll take you to them.

Interesting on the Southern plate is this the circular/horseshoe smokebox door one? I do need one for my loco-exchanges era 35017 - do you have a link to that perchance?

Thanks,
Alan

Hopefully that's worked Alan, circular as opposed to horseshoe but sharp knife would address that
