I don't think Dapol are taking a risk with this if heljan can sell 2400 falcons and the NRM can sell out of 3000 prototype deltics there is a demand it is far less risky a proposition than for heljan to produce a class 17 and although i do not model the Western region I do like to have the odd example of each class of Hydraulic so with limited runs of just 300 of each loco there will probably be a LOT of competition for slots in the production plus I'm sure at least one magazine will commission a limited edition as well so i would say that the odds of the first 3000 produced not selling are probably very long and with the specification mentioned i would expect a £110 to £120 price tag although I am surprised at the split chassis when other manufacturers are moving away from them
