    Hello: My favourite topic military trains, well I have one of these excellent models, from Oxford Rail. The only way to express the sheer size of this mode is “realy big”.

    Firstly there are some realy good points:

    1 they run well and pull well,

    2 they traverse over points well

    3 detail is very good

    4 couplings are at a good height

    5 the colouring is good and the

    6 price is good

    There are a few small minor issues:

    1 weight

    2 size the gun will not fit over most bridges (Bachmann and Hornby) or though most tunnels (Peco and Hornby)

    3 the gun will not go up against your stations ( I acn only assume that this didnt happen in real life)

    4 some of the detailing parts on the gun I have where not glued in (rear cranes)

    5 The wheel trucks when you remove the gun from the box they have a tendency to lock against the body. And

    6 The fwd stowage boxes are in the open position this is important as they would have been shut when in transit.

    Some minor points that realy don’t stick out are the platforms at each side of the gun are brass and some of the fittings are also brass this adds to the weight.

    This item is very good, I'll get another one to use as a static model.

    Cheers
    Richard
