      I’m so lucky to have bagged this limited edition. It’s a real gem. Silky smooth runner, detail is off the scale. Even the packaging is amazing. Can’t wait for my Class 50 to arrive.

      Combo with separate sound components supplied at sound fitted price

      Fantastic looking and great performer. This came up as available on a 'stock find', and I ordered the last sound fitted. The transaction was done at the same time as another customer so the sound fitted wasn't available.
      However, Accurascale added the decoder and speaker in the package at the sound fitted price. Customer service is second to none.


      Great model

      97301, the Yellow Peril

      Another fantastic model from Accurascale. Unlike most other manufacturers, Accurascale have not simply painted a 'normal' Class 37 yellow, they have gone the extra mile and produced the underframe radar and the antenna cut-outs in the roof. From the bright yellow box, which makes it more difficult to sneak into the house, the strong packaging, the helpful information leaflets and last, bit not least, the model itself, the whole package just exudes quality.

      Again, unlike most other manufacturers, if you buy an Accurascale model, you get everything at a very competitive price. With the sound version, not only do you get sound but all the models come fitted with a powerpack as well. If you only bought the DC version and you want to upgrade to sound, it is very easy to fit the decoder and speaker, no soldering necessary. Whilst you can do this through the opening in the roof, I would suggest that it is easier to remove the body, which reduces the risk of accidental damage to it. Whilst the body is off, you can also fit crew. All of these extras are available from Accurascale, making it a one stop shop for a complete package.

      There is always a risk that something may have come loose during assembly, packing or the log journey from China but parts tend to be relatively easy to refit or replacements can be requested from Accurascale. I have noticed that there is a tendency on the class 37 for what I would call a 'spreader bar' at both ends of the bogie to come out at one end, but this can normally just be clipped back in using tweezers, though it can be a bit awkward.

      Overall, this is a great model and you have missed out if you didn't buy one.

      Fantastic model from Accurascale

      Great detailed model with very accurate under carriage equipment. Nicely packaged in a great Network Rail yellow box to complete it.

      I was lucky to get one as I hadn’t pre ordered it
      5 stars brilliant model

      This loco is stunning

      Wow what can I say you guys have out done yourselves once again with this loco, fantastic! I'm so happy to own it in my collection.

      What a Banana

      What a banana of a Loco... not because anything is wrong with it. It is so fantastically yellow it brightens up any layout.
      The best 37 on the market.... IMO. the in cab detailing is impressive and isn't missed when the cab lights illuminate.
      Such a smooth runner. I have never been an 'old' loco fan but I now have 4 of these 37s.
      Just need accurascale to do the Network Rail coaches to complete the train.
      Would recommend this loco to anyone. Hopefully a 2nd round comming

      What a stunner

      I love this loco; it's so striking and colourful. Looks stunning on the layout.
      Can't wait for the orange "Tango" one.
