The rebuilt Scots were black in LMS days. The only example ever to been painted in crimson lake was Royal Scot after it was preserved.

Pat Hammond is alledging today at MRE mag that the Hornby images are computer generated artwork!

If they are the images are amazing. What do you think?


Happy modelling

I say they do look good. Looking forward to running one or two myself.

Is it me or does the piston rod not line up with the piston "tail" ?

Otherwise it looks very nice with the exception of the gap between the loco & the tender.

DB, That's not a tail it's the cylinder pressure relief valves. The gap is again enormous. They should use the new drawbar arragement they have for the Britannia to allow for closer coupling. Well it's something I'll change when I get one or two or more

And I thought my Bacchy Royal Scot was something special. And those coaches...

Its such a shame about the gaps on the Scot. But, Hey! I ain't no Rivet counter.

Wow.

I wonder if Mr. Hammond meant "computer enhanced" - perhaps some element of Photo-shopping to the liveries? They look like the models to me. Having seen the new King Arthurs on the Hornby stand at Alexandra Palace, which looked far better in the flesh than in photographs, I do not believe the Scot images are "computer generated".

Oh my god!!

Someone pass me a box of tissues to wipe my chin!!

I have an old Mainline 'Royal Scot' that has been to the bench for a full over haul and is currently sitting to one side awaiting a replacement chassis, not sure if it will get one now, as for the coaches, anyone want a rake of the old ones as I am certianly going to up-grade them
