Stunning detail, lovely little details that you wouldn’t get from other suppliers
Very fiddly to fit the batteries could have been made a lot easier so I was disappointed with the flasks and all the hype that went with them being promoted.
Fantastic models , highly detailed, great for the modern modeller or collector,
Great little wagons and very well detailed.
Absolutely fantastic. The detail is out of this world. We'll done Accurascale again.
I bought all 5 packs of these, and they arrived in Australia less than a week after ordering, safely packaged as usual. The detail is fantastic, and the flashing tail lamp a nice touch. It would have been ideal if it was removable, but given the size of it, a fixed lamp is understandable. Having seen online reviews I was prepared for the delicate removal of the cover to install the batteries, but did find the batteries a tight fit. Also had a bit of trouble finding batteries - CR927 is not exactly an off-the-shelf item. Overall another great model from Accurascale!
This model captures the prototype extremely well. Great weight to this model which gives you the sense of quality. Working tail lamp activated by the magnetic wand is a nice feature but care is need when unclipping the lid. best for last you get not one buy two in a pack for what you would expect to pay for one modern imagine bogie wagon. 5 stars all-round
First thoughts - heavy! The card box is very solid, and the packing inside ensures that the wagons cannot move about, although the detailing packs are free to rattle around as they seem fit!
In a world where we are encouraged to use less plastics, though, there is a lot of it in the packing, from the acetate sleeve over the entire card box, to the securing packing inside, surroundng the wagons.
The wagons themselves feel very solid, and nicely weighty, and appear to be very well detaled, with the lettering very crisp and readable under a suitable magnifying glass.
The built-in flashing? tail light is a nice addition, but access to the battery space is fiddly, with the potential of damaging the clip-on flask. The rear end unclips easily, but the other end is tricky.
The magnet switch is a nice touch, but could cause problems with the light switching on and off randomly, if you have magnets inset into the track for such as Kadee coupler releases, etc.
It is a shame that the batteries chosen are a rather unusual size, and were not included in the packaging - the extra £1 or so wouldn't be noticed. As it is, I have failed to find any in the shops near me, and have had to resort to e-bay, with the resulting p+p costs on top.
As a very non-scale fun option, it would be nice if accurascale could obtain a supply of a certain plastic that stores light, and then glows nice and green in darker locations. I have a keyfob made of it, that glows for several hours after being exposed to daylight or artificial light. Then one of the flasks made of this stuff can be substituted, for amusement.
Amazing one of the best wagons on the market, nothing surprising tho,
