This weekend we are at Railex in Aylesbury, and are pleased to announce some new items.
Following on from our last entry we have included some new laserglaze products and there are also new releases in our extreme etchings range. The images below shows our components used on a Hornby Railroad class 40, they include laser cut windows, etched headcode surround, frost grills, roof fan and grill and front cab window surrounds. What a difference it makes!
On to our new releases,
EELG4023A Lima Class 117 DMS Extra windows conversion pack. Price Code G
This allows a modeller to converting an unpowered DMB to a DMS to reflect the normal DMU three car unit configuration using Lima components. This kit covers the extra windows required.
EELG4030 Airfix/Dapol LMS Suburban 57′ All Third Price Code K
This kit contains sufficient windows to covert a lav composite to an all Third configuration
From our extreme etchings we are pleased to announce etches in 4mm and 2mm scales.
EEDP47-18 Class 47 cabside window frames. Price Code D
These are to scale and correctly profiled to give an accurate shape to the cabside windows on any 4mm scale Class 47.

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.
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.
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!

York MRS 30th March – 1st April
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. (Double click the images to get a bigger image)
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!
