First and foremost thank you to our customers who visited the stand at Scaleforum, we were pleased to meet you, and hope you enjoyed the show.
After a test etch and practicality trials we are happy to add to the Extreme Etchings range some new products for 2mm/N gauge scale customers. The following items are designed to fit the latest Bachmann Graham Farish Class 37 locomotive.
EEDP2-37-00 Class 37 Roof Fan Grille Price Code F
EEDP2-37-09 Class 37 Radiator Grille Price Code F
EEDP2-37-12(B) Class 37 Etched Window Surround £3.50
EEDP2-37-50-55 Etched Brake levers (bogie) suitable for Class 37/50/55
These items may well fit the previous Class 37 model by Graham Farish and the current Class 40, but we have not done any test fitting to those particular models. If you try them for either of those two models please let us know how you get on.
Class 24 and Class 121
Further 2mm/N gauge products soon to go into development are roof and fan grilles for the Bachmann Graham Farish Class 24, we are also investigating producing an etch for the roof to correct the panel lines. The windows may be suitable for laserglazing, this will be assessed for practicality in due course. If the Class 24 proves practical, then the Dapol Class 121 DMU will also be considered for producing a laserglaze replacement glazing kit. Release dates are yet to be programmed for the Class 24 or Class 121, and will be subject to suitable test results.
Heritage Range Developments
In test at the moment are two of the popular ready to run 4mm brake van models. Neither the Bachmann GWR/WR Toad (previously Mainline) or the Hornby LMS 20t brake van (Previously Airfix and Dapol) have ever been supplied with glazing. We’ve done our first test cuts and are working on them in anticipation of release in time for the Peterborough show in mid October.
This weekend we are at the Manchester show, see the diary for details and we look forward to seeing you there.
