    its with pleasure that I able to announce the latest addition to our Competition Sponsors ....... Minerva Models.

    Minerva Models produce a fantastic range of O gauge RTR locomotives and rolling stock which I'm sure will be of interest of all O gaugers alike whether seasoned modelers or modelers starting out in O gauge.
    whilst Ready To Run, they have a fine reputation as excellent performers " out of the box " and still have oodles of appeal to those Kit builders who can see the potential to take these models and super detail them until their heart is content.

    To find out more about their current line up of products ...... its easy ....... just click on their sponsors logo at the top of the front page in the sponsors area ....... and before you can say where is the buy button ...... you are in ....... and possibly hooked.

    many thanks to Chris Klein and Chris Basten for having the faith to come on board with us. Its great to have yet another well known and respected company associated with our forum.

    Keep your eyes open for more details on the opportunities that will be available to win some fantastic prizes from our latest sponsor

    once again a big thanks and welcome aboard from toto and the team.

    Excellent news Toto. Up till now I've just looked at their models and coveted them. Now however I've taken the plunge and ordered the new class 14. Hopefully it should be released late Autumn, so I can tell SWMBO I got it for her xmas present :avatar::avatar::avatar:

    I have also ordered a CL14. If you tell your SWMBO it’s for her and I tell mine the same we can compare injuries.

    I'm tempted too ... and Pete I told SWMBO I'd got her a model of a Britannia Pacific loco for Christmas but I think it didn't go down too well... I tried to appease the situation by offering her an 850 Pannier tank instead but that met with equal resistance. I think it was because the 850 Pannier was was not such an impressive thing and probably a tad on the smallish side.:avatar::avatar:

    That just goes to prove that size does really matter.

    We're delighted to be aboard. We have finalised the artwork for the Class 14 and hope to receive the fully decorated sample shortly. We'll post photos on Platform1 as soon as I can get it in front of my camera. The Paul Chetter sound project for the Class 14 is also progressing to plan and will have some unique features.

    Regards,

    Chris K

    Terrible news! According to the GoG forum, Chris has suddenly died!

    I'm sure I speak for all when I wish my condolences to be passed on to friends and family.
