Not sure where to post this - please feel free to move ...

A fellow modeller has alerted me to the fact the Osborne Models are commissioning a Schools Class locomotive from Dapol and are having a vote between Maunsell green livery and Bulleid Malachite green livery.

I want Maunsell green - so please all go and swamp Osborne Models website with votes for the Maunsell green :) :)

If you want Bullied Mallachite please don't vote, at all, ever.

I thank you :)

Well I wouldn't expect a King of the DMUs to understand :)

Nah, each to his own of course - I totally respect that - as long as everyone knows how bitterly disappointed and dejected and frustrated I will feel if us Southern Big Four modellers are yet again rejected in favour you Groupies of the Post-War era :)

Haven't you got enough to choose from already? :)

(Don't worry - just taunting) :)

But it would be nice to have something  rtr - just once :)

(Is that enough smilies btw?)

Sorry Southernboy, i voted Malachite. In all truth i'm not a fan of malachite but as i set my layout in the modern day and age i would want a model in her current livery. Come on Malachite  :NGaugersRule:

I've just emailled Osborns urging them to go with Maunsell green, as 1, it is the best livery and 2, there is already going to be malachite versions - just rename one of them if you must have 'Cheltenham'!

Dapol will have no problem selling the run of malachite ones. Variety in liveries is key in the niche N gauge area to increase sales of models and to keep the manufacturers producing the models we want.

It's a tricky one for me, as I'm going to be modelling a layout set in 1930. Do I go for the release of No 905 'Tonbridge' which was built in 1930 but which is going to be released in Malachite Green (used from 1938), or do I go for No 925 'Cheltenham' which was built in 1934 but which could be in Maunsell Green? Well, I requested Maunsell Green, so if that happens, then I think the four year error will be better than the eight year error. Fingers crossed for good old Maunsell Green  ;)

We're still waiting for the class 142 pacer which was some years back. Treat any model arrival data as 'advisory at best'. Short of simply not telling you till its in the shops I'm not sure how much better they could do though given the way the Chinese production works and how much a problem can kick you back.

If you want Maunsell green then you probably need to find 100 buyers and commission one via Dapol. Or if people only want a few it'll be cheaper to talk to Mercig and respray them.
