Heljan 47 Bound for Roy Jackson's 'Retford' in EM

Heljan 47 Bound for Roy Jackson’s ‘Retford’ in EM

This weekend we are attending the York Model Railway Show for the first time as a trader, so drop by and say hello. The pictures today show an EM gauge Class 47 that has had a makeover and is part of the fleet of locomotives that runs on Roy Jackson’s ‘Retford’ layout. Previously we have shown the Laserglaze kits and Extreme Etchings fitted to Bachmann and ViTrains models, the base locomotive here is the Heljan model, so you can see how the appearance is markedly improved with the addition of the glazing and fan and grill sets. We’ve also added the Brush Works plates from our range. This depicts an early series locomotive and reference images were provided showing the locomotive working southbound through Retford in the early 1960’s.

All the components are available from our stand at York to carry out this, and similar conversions, so come and see what we have to offer.
See you there!

26th January 2013 (Pontefract Cancellation)

January 26, 2013

With this picture we should probably be wishing you all a happy christmas! This was taken last night and the snow continued through to the early hours of the morning. Despite being up early and clearing out to our road it was clear that the main roads nearby were also snowbound and it would be very difficult and potentially hazardous to try to get to the show. Unfortunately this meant we missed our second show this year, last weekend we were booked for the Leamington show and this weekend we were anticipating being at Pontefract. Not so much a case of lightening striking twice, but snow!

Clearly this is a big disappointment for us, as well as show organisers and those of you whom were hoping to come and see us, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. Our next show is at Stafford on the weekend of the 2nd/3rd February, and the blog exhibition diary page will be updated soon. In the meantime, there is a listing currently available on http://shawplan.com/index.htm

We will update you soon on products in development, and thank you for your understanding during this period of particularly bad weather.

This weekend we are at Wakefield and its the last show of the year. Last weekend at Warley it was great to meet so many of our customers both old and new, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The recent updates have featured some of our recent laserglaze releases and for a chnage today we’re showing a test fitting of the Class 47 fan and grill set from our extreme etchings range, to a Heljan 4mm scale model.

Come and drop by at Wakefield, we’re stand 18 and look forward to seeing you!

Warley 2012 Show Releases

November 22, 2012

We are pleased this week to announce a number of new products in the Laserglaze range. This batch of releases includes windows for some of the very popular classes and vehicles we’ve frequently received requests for. Pictured above is the venerable Airfix GWR Autocoach, now produced by Hornby which with a few evenings work can still be made to look really good with our latest Laserglaze pack and the excellent detailing pack from Dart Castings (http://www.dartcastings.co.uk/dart/DK1.php)

Bachmann 2EPB

EELG4022 BACHMANN 2EPB

This set covers the popular Class 416 EMU, each pack contains sufficient windows for one coach. Just arrived and shortly to go into tooling is the Class 419 MLV, further updates will be announced here.

Hornby 25/0

EEFG2503 HORNBY CLASS 25/0

The ever popular Hornby class 25/0 is now included in the Laserglaze range. Whilst the body moulding is very much a heritage model, the difference adding this flush glazing and one of our extreme etchings roof fan grill sets makes is well worth the effort.

Bachmann 25/0 and 25/3

EEFG2501 BACHMANN 25/0

Two sets of glazing are released this weekend for the Bachmann class 25 models. The 25/0 body and cab are covered by catalogue number EEFG2501, and the later body style 25/3 is catalogue number EEFG2502.

Warley Preparations

November 16, 2012

16th November 2012

This year has been very busy with various projects, and we are currently very busy with the preparations for the Warley show at the NEC. This is our latest laserglaze product in the final stages of tooling for the 4mm scale Bachmann 2EPB class 416. There are similarities between this unit and the MLV class 419, and we hope to be able to produce the MLV hot on the tail of the 2EPB.

In the next few days we will anounce another laserglaze product for one of the most requested coaches from the heritage era. This coach too is under final tooling checks and we hope to have both in stock at Warley. Check back in the next few days for more news.
