Dapol published photos of the initial moulding of their new N gauge Grain hopper.

Certain inconsistencies were picked up from Dapol fans when comparing our model with the actual 'Version 1/587 Grain Hopper'. Dapol stopped production and 'returned to the drawing-board' to make a brand new design of wagon. To show redesign, here are the actual CAD/CAM drawings that will be used to produce the IMPROVED model.

If anyone has comments to make - Use the 'Contact' link on the Dapol site.

Here is what it should look like:

Wow!

That's a new innovation.

I wonder if this will be the start of something new?


Models designed by those who purchase them!

Thats one of the most interesting news stories I've seen.

Will Bachmann, Hornby and Peco follow Dapol's lead?

We have to admire Dapol's openness here.

Happy modelling
Gary
