Excellent delivery, great detail and looks good on the layout.
I have been a modeler since the 1960s,was in the P4 model group,and i have seen some of the finest models,and met some of their makers of the same.and i have to say these are one of the finest models i have seen,more or less museum standard. i do not agree with your remarks about the NEM pocket,in my opinion it is in the correct position,most makers stick to the correct height,but not the length to the buffer end,you are trying to compramise for the rubbish tension lock coupling,.I use the Fleischmann 6515 coupling on all my passenger stock,and this connects the Siphons to the close coupling required.a much better option than magnetic couplers.these couplings are light years in front of the ancient (tension lock) the Fleischmanns give a correct safe connection,(no shuffling about like an ancient loose coupled coal train)You should try them,and i am just a customer.But these Siphons are superb,the only thing i could say i would have hoped to have got some end doors for the corridor connections,i fit Hornby Hawksworth doors which fit great and improve the look,after all in service it was rare to see them connected up.For my wish list how about the ex LMS 42ft bogie CCT an iconic coach,it would be a top seller,as they lasted from 1930s up to the mid 70s,in lots of different liveries.hope you might find time to look at this review!
This is a very high quality piece of model rolling stock. The quality of finish is excellent and the level of separate detail is impressive. One of Accurascale's first, if not THE first, ventures into coaching stock. In that context it has to be regarded as an extremely good start!
Arrived unharmed and all bits still fitted. An excellent model in every way - it seems a shame to weather it to the deplorable standard I remember them normally travelling around in.
Received mine around 2 weeks ago and was very impressed. Well packaged, loaded with detail and very smooth running. One of the wire details had detached on its way to Australia, which was easily rectified, and has now been weathered as per the pic. I felt the BR Crimson was a bit too "bright" so gave it a dark grey wash first before weathering with an airbrush and then Pan Pastels. Very impressive model.
What more can be said about these models that hasn't already been said. The detail is top notch with a good weight to the model and excellent running quality.
These fit perfectly within a parcels train or with a set of coaches as a through van. Just wish I could justify more than one as I would get more!!!
This beautiful coach has helped me re-create my long awaited Paper train. Many thanks
Excellent Model, super detail. Can't wait for the Mk 1 Suburbans
The detail on this model is superb. Perfection in miniature! I have added three of these to my collection so far - I will be ordering more. Well done Accurascale!
