    It's been challenging year with regard to multiple project management, and particularly frustrating in regard to this model. We have experienced a number of issues during testing that I required to be resolved, additionally, electronic component quality and supply problems occurred, and the implementation of the decoration changes requested long ago.
    The 'knock on' effect is that it takes time for a problem to be revealed, time to resolve and, as is the nature of these things the factory will move schedules around if a project stalls whilst we or another subcontractor resolves issues.

    We are now at the stage where I am expecting final paint 'chips' for the ARC and Powergen liveries and the model will start production shortly after I approve these.

    I think Andy is better situated to answer this.

    I'm very much looking forward to this model. I have pre-ordered 59103 'Village of Mells'.
    I have recently found some photos I took of it in 1991 (Old Oak Common Open Day), where the roof colour is the same grey as the cabs.
    But on pictures that I can find of the Dapol 59 the roof is a different grey to the cabs. Has this been corrected for the final model?
    I also found some photos I took of 59001 in Yeoman livery in 1991 (also at Old Oak Common). The pair of lights each side on the front (red and marker light) are the same size. But on the Dapol pictures I can find they are a different size. Has this been corrected? I am considering a pre-order of that as well!
    Do you have any more up-to-date pictures to show?
    I know that these 2 issues have been mentioned earlier but the last update from Andy Dapol in December 2018 didn't specifically say these 2 issues have been fixed?
    Keep up the good work!

    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.
