    This year will be split into three 4 month segments and will see both expansion of the road vehicle range and re-introduction of some old kits as well as brand new protypes across three gauges.

    In Guage 0, the Class 24 and 25 ranges will be reintroduced through 2019 with new castings etc. Imediately however will be add on kits for the Class 26 and 27 for those loco's that were converted with tablet catchers and air tanks. An original Derby Lightweight (Class 108) will be released. This is the two car version and will be a resin body on etch brass underframe and bogies. Road vehicle wise, there will be an earlier Leyland Terrier, Leyland FG and Dodge comando. The first two will hopefully be ready by Bristol Trade. I will be building 4 Resin Bodied RTR Class 24's which I'll sell for around £350.00 to help raise funds for a new printer and the Class 108.

    Guage 1 (1/32nd) will see the introduction of 10800 along with the Hudswell Clark 0-6-0 diesel shunter both of which should hopefully be ready for reading in May. Also under development are the Class 24 and 15. I'm also researching a Class 37 for release later in the year.

    Finally once I get a new printer the Guage 3 Class 22 will be realeased probably in the summer. More updates throughout the year.

    Good to know of your plans Steve. Very interesting. Why are the 108's not being done in brass etch bodies ?

    Exciting times Steve. Put my name down for a Leyland FG. We used to own a 1966 Austin FG K60 and I have always regretted selling it. A 7mm version is the next best thing I reckon ;).

    Cheer's, Pete.

    Hi Steve liking the sound of 1/32 scale models will probably be too expensive to ship down under but will keep an eye on the progress.
