Re: Hornby N15 Pendragon

I think that the part you want is X9461. This comes in black, X9461,X9461G green, X9461W weathered. Googling Hornby x9461 will give you providers. I note the New Modellers shop has stock of the black. If you go to peters spares website and in the search box type honby N15 class it lists the spares w...

Re: Removing the body on Bachmann 32-353 no. 80135

Thanks for the suggestions. I removed 5 screws +speedometer screw and the body comes down and away from the chassis. However one part of the pipework is stuck to the body.I haven't cut this because there is now enough room to get the blanking plate out and an 8 pin direct decoder in. Can't be doing ...

Re: Modelmates brick joint filler

The Expo site does not allow you to put a bottle in your cart giving a general script error.
The Ebay site is pricey at £12.00 when it formerly retailed at about £7/£8.
Have emailed the Ebay guy to see if it is in stock.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Wha thas happened to this product?
Has it been withdrawn? A google search didn't give me any dealers who had stock.
Grateful for any clarification on availability.
