    Currently being reviewed, we have 4 locos representative of the 6 models being produced (not featured are 2D-022-002 DRS 'Defiant and 2D-022-005 Scotrail 'Daring').

    We have modelled the 'early' variations as the modifications to the later style handrails and horn grills commenced early 2017, (these later details will be featured in our next production) Notable are the two Chiltern Variations with & without Handrails, both being modelled whilst in passenger service (Hence fitting of the AAR socket which was not present during early mainline operation).

    We are still on target for a January release of this model. As always we're happy to receive comments and questions.
    Please note: We are aware of the incorrect panel moulding on the R/H side This is due to re-use of 1st shot bodyshells for expediency.
    Some stunning stuff right there! I have 2D-022-007 in DRS livery 68001 "Evolution" on pre-order and I look forward to getting it sometime early 2018. The detail is exquisite.
