    I will need to double check but I think this batch will still be the 6 pin variety of decoder.

    RAL5005 is way way too light, certainly don't go with that one!

    Will these still have 6-pin DCC sockets or are you looking to update them to Next18?

    Thank you for the info I will see if I can get a copy of that book. Sounds like a very good resource

    Regarding the GNER HST Livery colours I have the book "Railway Liveries : Privatisation 1995-2000" by Colin Boocock.

    In the Appendix D it states : Livery information based on the author's request for information.

    Midnight Blue : Pantone 5395; PPG Deltron EFT-64925
    GNER Red : Pantone 032 ; PPG Deltron EFT-10327
    Metallic Gold : Scotchcal 3630-131 (not retro-reflective)

    I hope this may be useful.

    I would suggest asking the 125 group to check colours and artwork for HST models, if they are willing.

    Hello Neil,

    May I suggest using RAL5003 instead?

    Cheers!

    We have been choosing colour codes for the HST's, first up is GNER - Blue = Ral 5005, Red stripe = Pantone Warm Red C and finally the Logo Yellow = Pantone 129C. All constructive comment is welcomed. Speak now or forever hold your peace.

    Does anyone out there have the actual corporate livery info????
    RAL5003 is a far lighter blue than the GNER shade which can appear almost black in some photos.

    Whilst we're on the topic of Midland Mainline HSTs...I've always preferred their blue stag liveries.

    Please consider these for another batch!

    We will post the other artworks when they are ready. Can't squeeze an extra one in last minute but Midland Mainline is a good suggestion for next time round.

    That would be a superb addition, the Hornby model looks beautiful with etched plates. I suppose if Dapol don't then someone can always commission somebody to do it.

    Both look good to me, only question (and I apologise if this has been asked/answered elsewhere), will the GWR HST be supplied with etched letters? I think it would really be a lovely detail.

    I'm not going to say whether the colour is right or wrong (it's impossible to tell on a computer screen), but do be careful with the GNER livery, as I reckon the Hornby and Farish attempts at the livery were both too light. In reality, it was a very dark shade of blue.

    The positioning of the logos and the typeface for the numbers all look good to me though. Thanks for sharing these. Personally I'm most interested in the Virgin one...

    Unless you feel like adding a Midland Mainline teal and orange at the last minute.... I'd have a 2+7 set without a second thought!!

    thank you for the comments thus far, colours are yet to be finalised, as you can imagine theses things do not always translate well to on screen views. Any further comments are welcome.
