    Can anyone from Dapol please respond if the pantographs will become available again as spare parts?

    Regards,

      I have checked and we have few packs in our on site shop. If you need these, drop our sales email a contact on sales@dapol.co.uk

      We will probably not do these again in the future as we had these in stock for along time. if we do decide to release these again, we will change the format and have a pair of the same style of panto in the pack and not a mixture of styles, as currently is the case.

      I hope that helps.

      I think sales have been slow because the pantograph arms are a little longer than they should be. I've seen so many people asking for a Brecknell-Willis pantograph from the likes of RevolutioN etc. I like the Dapol pantographs, but I feel it's a little too long.

      Hi Gang,

      It has been very quiet on the Class 86 front for a while now.
      Is there any progress on manufacture and delivery date??

      Later,
      Stu from EGDL.

      Hi, I see the 86's are due any day now. Has this batch been upgraded to NEXT18 specs or is it 6 pin DCC as previous releases?
      Thanks,
      Keith.

        Hi Kieth

        They are fitted with NEXT-18 Decoder sockets, any factory fitted DCC models will be fitted with the Imperium II chip

        Kind Regards

        Neil

      Glad to see these have finally hit store shelves...

      I initially wanted the Caledonian Sleeper one and Les Ross, but the shade of blue on Les Ross looks extremely light, so I'll have to reluctantly decline. Order placed for the Caledonian Sleeper one.

        Well then I think I'll buy one if any remain once I can save up for it....If only I lived near a model shop and could see the model in the flesh. Studio photos are often over-exposed and so far that is all I've seen of it.

        We did actually go the bother of getting another body shell made up with a slightly darker colour and it looked wrong, so in the end we went with the original. This colour business is so hard to get right and so subjective if using photographs as a reference.

        Ahh well, it is truly subjective. Sorry for the rant. Really wish I lived near a model shop.
