Banana Tadpoles

These are great looking models and have higher levels of detail than other vans in my collection. Seperately fitted door lock/opening mechanism, sprung buffers, legible printing and highly detailed underframe with brakes aligned with the wheels. Excellent!

SR Tadpole ex-D1479 Van - British Railways Departmental

Yet another fantastic model from Accurascale. From the moment they arrive in the familiar sturdy black box, other colours are available, you just know that you are about to unveil another treat for yourself. From the exquisite moulding to the sublime decoration, the quality of Accurascale models just shines through. It just seems such a shame that you have to place these wagons on a track and hide all the under chassis moulding. What else can I say apart from, if you haven't bought them yet, you are missing out.

Goes Bananas Again

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.
