The HST MUST be due for a re-tool, surely. Yes... but instead they're just using the Lima tooling. I guess they've got to try and eek some value out of buying Lima. Certainly I'm surprised that Heljan/Bachmann haven't seen the opportunity and launched a truly amazing HST. They wouldn't even need to...

I must admit Hornbys stuff is rubbish apart from their new locos like the 08, 31, 50, 56 and 60. Agreed - but the Hornby (ex-Lima_ 67 isn't too bad. Some of their skaledale stuff is pretty good (but always overpriced). In fact, I'd go so far as to say that if Hornby could get the 67's motor in thei...

Not sure what this is or the livary http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u47/PeterHHodge/DSCN2232.jpg Looks like a Hornby Class 47 in some sort of Parcels/Pre-RES livery. There's another thread on here somewhere in which someone asks what this livery is. I don't think we got much beyond saying it loo...

Oooo! Nice graphics were did you get them? I think it was from something called Notwork Rail, or Network Fail? Something like that anyway. I'm sure they won't mind. :lol: Anyway, am going to make a start on my Hornby Class 67 lighting project. The plan is to supplement the existing headlights with ...

Have you seen the bus-stop? I was about to get one: http://www.britanniamodels.com/images/hornby/R8681.jpg Until I saw it for real (rather than a computer graphic) of it: http://i21.ebayimg.com/04/i/08/1c/c2/a7_1_b.JPG Imagine a plastic one in real life that has been melted and that is what you hav...

It has some good white headlights at each end. The 'third' light at the top of the loco at each end is just printed though. The red tail lights are also just printed on. I intend to correct this though - it looks like being a little tricky, but definitely do able.
