    I've just received some of the latest batch of these and very nice they are too. I couldn't help noticing that the United Creameries (silver) tankers (2F-031-016) actually have "Unigate Creameries" labels on the tank barrel. I'm not too bothered about this but I expect some people might be.

    10 pages on milk tanks 40 b+w photos with captions. Notes on most of the users with wagon numbers of their fleets. Book also covers mik vans, horse boxes, and fish, fruit and cattle wagon. I enjoy dipping in to learn more abot iit and see what else Dapol could do.

    Hi Chris, I see you mention the Larkin book, does this cover many of the operators of milk tanks, along with running number/fleet numbers or or they found in other Larkin publications?? Regds Chris

    Good to have some new milk tanks. 017 has no running number though. still some liveries to do -United Dairies with green lettering (4f-031-027?) and CWS in red livery (7f-031-002?. Like wise with growth of interest in departmental stock) Satlink Western (as in OO) and Diesel Fuel only (as in OO) may be of interest -perhaps as Club specials initially. Art work has been done -just needs reducing to N!

    Hi Dapol,

    I really liked the weathering applied to the milk tankers in the class 22 box sets (so much that I ended buying 3 lots, just for the tankers). It is far ahead of the brown spray on the earlier Hymek sets.

    However it is also much lighter than many of these vehicles in actual service. How about producing some milk tankers weathered in the same way as your silver bullets? Actually make the dirt and patina part of the applied paint. The picture below at Hemyock captures the sort of finish I have in mind and was typical of milk tankers in the 60s and 70s.

    Too late for this batch I am afraid, but we will consider it for the future.

    Hope The Dapol team are reading this as I'd like to "Bump"/Nudge them as to my earlier post #5.1 as I believe this would also be applicable at this time. Chris.

    Hi Gerry, Thanks for that, Found a list on Hattons site, not quite as detailed. Interesting to note though that that 2F-031-011 "Unigate Creameries Ltd" Is 70351(I have this on my desk in front of me as I type this), now they're saying it's united Creameries in the same sequence, but having seen a picture in a David Larkin Book, the 703?? sequence is dedicated to "Unigate Creameries Ltd", it'll be interesting to see what actually appears?? Chris PS (they also used 70346 + 70349 on their OO wagons as "Unigate Creameries Ltd).

    HI, Are there any lists Known on either Hattons or Kernow Websites, as these two usually have them listed some time before they actually are available. Chris

    Are there any images available of the next batch of these wagons which appear to be on the way? I would like to pre-order some but I would like to see some pictures first. Thanks.

    Hi team dapol, I'd jump at the chance to own several sets of tanks as previously issued with the 22's/35's, but also as supplementary/additional sets to boost the previous issues!!
