I know there has been many threads about the model of Tornado but i wonder if any of you have found that there is one detailed part missing from this model! Cos i have noticed it and now i have noticed that bit missing it is putting me off using the model!

The Speedo cable is missing from the left hand side rear drive wheel as it is on the real thing! Hornby have got them on Duchess of Sutherland City of Nottingham Oliver Cromwell Flying Scotsman Sir Lamiel and posibly on the other super detail locos.

Come on Bachmann put the mistake right!

i sent them an emaillast night asking about this matter and i they replied with:-

Thank you for your enquiry. Itís not an oversight, we no long fit cosmetic speedo cables as we had lots of 4MT and 5MT models returned as a result of owners breaking them. Unfortunately details on models have to be robust enough to stand up in the marketplace.

Then i thought to myself if that was the case why not have it as an option part in the detailing bag! Wouldn't it be better if people had the option to have it on!

I guess people will moan if they break the bits of plastic lights off the front!

I'll get in touch with Hornby to see if they can send me one with the fittings!

You could try guitar strings, I've seen these used for brake pipes etc many times.
