U.K. Projects September 19 2019
Currently, we have six UK projects listed on the website and these will be our last UK Outline models for the time being, as we move over to the production of our USA projects.
To be clear the following projects are advancing well and will all be completed by our own builder in South Korea, SMT, who has produced the GWR coaches, GWR 517, GWR Dean Goods and SECR Wainwright D.
- GWR Castle. Now in full production,
- GWR K14/15 Passenger Brake Vans. Production samples completed
- GWR 850 Saddle Tanks. The pilot sample is under construction
- LNER A1/A3 (only 60 models) Pilot sample completed.
- BR 80xxx 4MT (only 60 models) Design for pilot sample underway
- GWR Manor (only 60 models) Design for pilot sample underway
So if you wish to obtain one the above models please don't hesitate to reserve as these will be our last UK outline models for a while.
We do still have some Dean Goods, SECR Wainwright D, GWR coaches, and BR 9Fs now in stock, DCC sound fitted and ready to run or just to create a stunning addition to your display case.
Our first two USA projects entering production are the Southern Pacific GS-4, 4-8-4 which will be followed by the NYC Niagara 4-8-4. As you know US models are giants compared to the UK loading gauge, but with the American market used to 1:48 rather than the UK 1:43 they can make an ideal diversion and addition to UK collections and in most cases still be run on UK layouts.
