October 18, 2013

Well its been a while since we’ve posted anything, but we’ve been busy in the background! One of the summer developments which has taken a while to achieve is putting all the components into an online catalogue, so its easy to find what we do and the price of the items. Weare still developing the website but hopefully this major step forward will help you the customer, as well as ourselves in the office!

Please take a look at the link at your convenience.

Laserglaze Developments

We have an addition to the Laserglaze range too. We have completed tooling for the windows for the Bachmann and Mainline class 03 and 04 diesel shunters. Please note this only covers the original body moulds rather than the current version. The contemporary version is currently one of the work in progress items. We also have in development a window pack to fit the Hornby 2-BIL, further news on these in due course.

Extreme Etchings

With the Class 37 being one of the most popular locomotive types, we are working on a modification kit to provide new roof panels to model the 37/9 variants. We are hoping to release this kit in time for the Warley show in late November. Both single and double exhaust  ports types will be produced, price code TBC.

This weekend we are at the Peterborough show, drop by and say hello!

Closed for essential Workshop Maintenance..

August 12, 2013

..If there’s one thing the recent heavy rain has done (apart from making the grass grow twice as fast as usual!..) it has highlighted the fact that the workshop roof leaks are getting worse!.. and having spent more time mopping up than actually getting anything done this past couple of weeks, the time has come to take action so as a result we will be closed this week and will reopen on Wednesday 21st, please forward any enquiries to brian@shawplan.com or better still, come over to the Midland Railex exhibition at Butterley next weekend (Aug 17/18th) and say hello!..

This weekend we are at one of your busiest shows, DEMU Showcase. In the run up to the show we have been working on new products and these cab roof vents are one of the new items we hope to have for showcase.

We’ve designed them so they fold up from a one piece etch which automatically forms two fixing pins to help fix them to the cab roofs.

Come and have a look at these and our other ranges this weekend, we look forward to seeing you there!

Derby, DMU’s and Roaring Forties

May 9, 2013

9th May

This weekend we are at the Derby show with four new releases in the Laserglaze range. We have recently added three of the popular DMU’s which we are asked for.

Hornby Railroad/Lima 121 'Bubble Car'

EELG4025 Hornby Railroad/Lima 121 ‘Bubble Car’

EELG4023 Lima Class 117 DMU Power/Trailer Car
(one vehicle) Price Code K

EELG4024 Lima Class 117 DMU Centre Car
(one vehicle) Price Code K

EELG4025 Hornby Railroad / Lima Class 121 Rail Car
(one vehicle) Price Code K

Each pack has sufficient glazing for one vehicle, based upon the original releases. The Class 117 DMU was released with brake compartments in both vehicles and the packs reflect that, rather than a corrected trailer car. The Class 121 Rail Car has been tooled specifically for the original Lima moulding which is now in the Hornby range. If you’ve done a cut and shut using the 117 unit then order 117 unit kits as the glazing apertures are different dimensions.

Hornby RailRoad / Lima Class 40

EEFG4001 Hornby RailRoad / Lima Class 40

Some customers have been giving the old Lima Class 40 (now Hornby Railroad) a makeover and swapping it onto Bachmann Chassis’. This can give a pleasing result as can a full makeover of the Railroad or Lima model by itself. To help those modellers we’ve added a laserglaze kit to the range which covers the side cab and body windows.
EEFG4001 Hornby/Lima Class 40 Cab/Body Side Windows
Price Code K

We have decided not to do the cab front windscreens for this model as they are of such poor shape, however an easy conversion for the front windows can be achieved using our class 37 standard window pack EEFG37-12a which are shown on the image above.

Come and see us this weekend, we have news soon of further releases in the heritage range of coach glazing, we look forward to seeing you there!
