Great looking model

Not on the layout yet but they look the part and will look even better with a little weathering.

Lets put a brake on the word break!

Greetings team,

The vans arrived in top condition and have been pressed into immediate service to ensure the logistical outcomes for the workshops has been achieved. The details are superb and they behave excellently on the layout around the departmental sidings which have short radius points.

The word 'brake' was incorrectly noted as being 'break' in the vehicle descriptions hence the cryptic title for this review. It is happening more and more these days as people rely more and more on computers to spell for them. Sad but true.

Going Bananas

What a bunch of great vans from Accurascale to go bananas over. As we have expected and are usually accustomed to by the company. These items in the excellent robust triple-pack boxes are a delight to see. Highly detailed from top to wheel rims and decorated in wonderful printing all around each van. The smooth running and secure coupling make them a joy to run behind any locomotive.

More handsome Prince than ugly frog

As part of their banana van range Accurascale also spawned these tadpole vans. The decoration is top notch as is the ‘ribbit’ detail. They are nice and free running and well priced for what they are, especially with the 10% discount for buying more than one pack. Highly recommended
