    Current information is that production is scheduled for May/June, the delay was due to PCB supply issues. As schedules are being arranged the date will be confirmed.
    Hi Andy, thanks for the reply and update.

    It may have been the light but it was noted that:
    1) it looked like the roof grey and bodyside grey on the ARC 59 were different when it should be the same
    2) the NP blue looked too dark
    3) the size of the NP names and numbers were too large

    keep up the good work mate
    regards
    Darryl

    this topic is about the artwork, hence asking about if any updates. no point them being released Q1 in 2020 if the artwork is still wrong

    Hi daz9284,
    The revised livery samples have arrived, photos will be released in due course. I'm currently finalising tests on the PCB and other electrics and will have some positive news on dates once I have confirmed with the factory.

    No model will ever be perfect, small details will never be seen when going round a track, there we always be compromises when extrapolating from the real thing to a model

    Yet again issues are found only when it's too late. And if you look back at the times when Dapol shared images of the first samples and then the first painted samples, this sort of thing is quite clear in the pictures. Yet time and time again these things are only brought up at a stage where either nothing can be done or if the company is willing to do it, it will delay the model by atleast 3-6 months.

    Don't know if this is in hand as an alteration already, but noticed the strip under the doors isn't quite right.
    heres a link to my comment on rmweb about it, seems other are in agreement. https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/in...omment=3508386

    It's only a small detail, but as I'm on and off the real things several times a shift it jumped out as not right

    Hi
    We seemed to waiting for this forever, have you any idea what the ETA of this model will be, Will the smoke unit will be ready (as there are no mention of this except on the first post) at the same time, as I can not wait for this to be on my layout along side my Black Label A4.
    cheers

    Hi All and happy new year .
    Good to see that feed back is being used and put in to practice hopefully the finished article will be well worth the wait .
    It is a class that deserves to be brought up to modern standards.

    A minor update to these models is that improvements are in hand, this includes some tooling tweaks, logo and paint colour/ shade alterations. These changes are based on feedback received directly and via this forum, thanks to all who have contributed!

    Hi, thanks for your feedback. Yes they are moulded parts, however this is one of the changes which are in hand as a result of our continued development, aided by comments such as yours. Please keep it up!

    Just noticed on the 59/0 (Yeoman model) the marker lights are too big. The tails and markers are the same size on the real loco (the red and white lights each side, not the central main headlight). If these are in the plastic, presume it's too late to fix
