    Here's another of my images of D7051 in blue window surrounds and small yellow panel.
    Hymek liveries have been discussed on RMweb
    A polite request though, earlier in this thread one of my images was posted without reference. I'm quite happy for them to be here but please state the source, I've paid a lot for copyright slides, I'm sure everyone understands this.
    nice to see a directly interacting forum between a manufacturer and its customer base.

      Hi Joel and friends.
      Any progress on your thoughts for new liveries on the Hymek?

        Hi Bob, we should have the final list sorted in the next few days and will post the models on our website and here.

      I see that Rails are listing two new Hymeks for forthcoming release:

      2D-018-007 D7003 Two Tone Green BR Late Crest
      2D-018-008 D7043 Two Tone Green BR Late Crest SWP

      Any confirmation and delivery dates please Dapol?

        I see Dapol has advertised a new set of liveries in the NGS magazine this month, for release in May/June.
        I am a little disappointed that at least one of the chromatic blue ones has been done before.

        2D-018-007 D7003 in two tone green with no yellow panel. Well done. This will get ordered.
        2D-018-008 D7043 in two tone green with small yellow panel. Yet another standard hymek livery. I have enough of those.
        2D-018-009 D7007 in BR blue with small yellow panel. We have not seen any livery renditions of this model, but quite a few of us told Dapol on the Digest that this was produced without the white window frames, so can we get a livery update please, to confirm the white window frames will be absent?
        2D-018-010 D7036 in BR blue with small yellow panel/white window frames. Unfortunately this is a replicate of the limited edition of 150 produced for Kernow in 2008, and Dapol has been told by a fair few of us that they could have also done D7047 or D7056 in this livery.

        And the blue ones were originally a slightly different shade, sometimes described as chromatic blue, not BR blue. So I wont be pre-ordering until I have seen the colour in photographs at least, as they are described as BR blue.

        Come on folks. We are here to help, not hinder. I have already sent back my Gaugemaster Broadlands for the wrong livery and front light being present when it shouldn't be on that model. I don't want to do that again.

          I missed the Kernow D7036 so very glad to hear of its re-birth; also D7003 most welcome. Both ordered from my usual source.

            Looking forward to the next batch. I’ve pre ordered a green one with full yellow ends as I haven’t got one of those. I get the impression that the new batch are very close to being available. Is that correct?
