Re: First photos of the 42xx and the 72xx

I just looked on a dealer website that utilises Hornby factory images and the black BR version is correct but the GW version is definately askew, so the issue goes back square on Hornby's quality control shoulders. A major obvious issue like this should have been sorted out when the first test mode...

Re: First photos of the 42xx and the 72xx

Both of them still look good to me, and I will buy each of them when I can afford it.

I think the safety value bonnet is screwed on backwards, that's why it's tilted forwards.

Re: First photos of the 42xx and the 72xx

O.K InFullSteam, I've been away (again) but tonight doing some Grass Laying on a couple of boards and put 7229 out with a few wagons. GWR 5274 will have to wait. So to your request a few photos :- http://imageshack.us/a/img547/1522/pk8l.jpg http://imageshack.us/a/img716/9348/n84d.jpg http://imagesh...

Re: First photos of the 42xx and the 72xx

Strange ...... There had been loads of chatter before release, then loads of comments regarding the rather basic engineering used in many places (cost cutting) yet no comments on running, or pictures from NRM members. Now does this mean that few have purchased one ? Well I've at long last received ...

Layout types that you would like to see more of.

I'm always curious why we don't see more 'the docks' layouts compared to the ever present BLT or Industrial area. There's a lot to model, the scenery, the machinery, the trains, the various material trades.

Possibly one of the reasons Hornby withdrew the Grange - released a number of versions of the Grange (read too many?) - and in their opinion recieved a lukewarm sales response.


If they made a GWR one, that would sell well.

Re: Hornby Grange

Silly question:

Between Llanfair Grange (R2547) and Hardwick Grange (R2402), besides the name, there`s no difference between the models?

Re: random hints and tips post

Next time you are in a fast food establishment, you will find the little wooden sticks used for stirring hot drinks, they stir tinlets of paint equally well and can be used for many other modelling jobs. They make convincing planks of wood in 4mm/7mm scale with very little work. :) Krusty. Just mak...

Re: 800px Images now allowed

i think it's time some one did a step by step set of instructions, using pictures for each step for this.. and i think i know a man who can. I've got to locate a couple of kits for someone who has been waiting very patiently for me to get back to them, but after that, i will set about doing a reall...

Re: What if Thomas & Friends were either GWR, LMS, LNER or S

Actually, Percy should be either a 56xx or a 42xx/52xx considering he's seen mostly on coal duty.

Re: First photos of the 42xx and the 72xx

I think that should be rephrased to ask why is the 42xx/72xx £20-30 more for less of a model? I don't know if you follow current events in China or not, but the cost of producing things in China has increased substantially over the 'bonanza' period of 5-10 years ago. Those times of cheap models for...

Re: First photos of the 42xx and the 72xx

The big question is, if it was 20-30 quid more to get all the bells and whistles that people wanted, would they still have bought it?
