Fantastic detailing and smooth running. First class!
Well worth waiting for. Superb detail, perfect representation of the real thing
In miniature. I can't wait for your next G.W.R. loco.
Simply the best model ever.
Good detail and good weight suggests solid build. The sound could be louder and I would say it does not run quite as well as the Dapol version Also it derails on some express points that the Dapol sails over
So much detail out of the box. I got the sound fitted version and love it.
It runs well including slow speeds out of the box, packaging was outstanding the best I have ever seen including the postal packaging.
Details are excellent, it really captures the real loco. Sound is also excellent, I love the proper GWR bark.
Beatufully detailed, great sounds and pereformance; easily pulls a rake of 8 coaches. Only difficulty is that it would not accept loco number reprogramme from default setting despite sevearl attempts using programme track and Hornby Elite controller - which has never had any issues in the past doing this with other locos.
I waited over 2 years for this engine to arrive and it was well worth the wait. I have not run the Engine yet, as my layout is in the middle of an Engineering upgrade, so my review is about the detail of the model. I have a pre DCC Hinton Manor from a recognized competitor of Accurascale so have been able to bench mark them against each other. The Accurascale wins hands down for replication and fine detail and am looking forward to further models from this highly creditable organisation.
A model definitely worth the wait. Hinton Manor looks absolutely fantastic on the layout and is able to haul an impressive number of coaches up the curved embankment that many other locos struggle with. The sound file is great and really enhances our running sessions. Would definitely recommend!
Could not be happier with the model, the excellent finish, attention to detail and the overall fineness of the model is something to behold - I hope all future steam releases will strive for this standard!
