revolution KFA wagons
« on: May 10, 2019, 09:28:16 PM »
I have had two sets of these on order for ages and paid for.  My account says “processing” which means sweet fanny adam to me - mr ando what does “processing mean?

I have heard nothing about my order and I just wondered what is the status of these wagons.

Hi Terry

As per our newsletter the KFAs are in production at the moment.

There is an overview of all the latest information on our website by clicking on Projects.

The FAQ under info explains the order statuses.

As soon as we have any more information from Rapido then we'll share it.

Cheers Mike

Just saw those pictures from the factory.  :o

Looks amazing, just hope they are better at keeping straight than the OO version

Hi Terry,

Glad too see you are well and still kicking butts.

Are you booked into the Missenden Autumn Modelling weekend by any chance?


All the Best

I was referring to the Hornby KFA which has been known to be bendy

Hi Mark,

Agreed - Hornby one can be bendy.

Do not leave in the box in sunlight - otherwise you will find out how bendy!

Hi Gang,

I’m sure that Ben or Mike will be along shortly to clarify everything, but I believe that the bed of the KFA is cast for weight and rigidity, so hopefully, we should have none of the bendy issues....

Later,

A selection of my pictures, real & model ARE NOW to be found at...

Stu is indeed correct - the "spine" underneath the deck is die cast (and the deck itself is plastic). We should be getting production samples in the next few weeks so this will be one of the things we're looking out for.

One of the reasons that this project is delayed is that we re-tooled the die cast part to add more weight, but we're battling the limits of physics now as the flats are light when unloaded.

Cheers, Mike

Clearly depleted Uranium indicated....
