Check out this link. It's the same model...

your link works out to £590.50 not much of a saving If Chris is like me dont have the money to go out and buy it in one go but can buy the flying scotsman over sametime what the problem

End of the day, it's your choice on how you buy the model. However considering it'll take 2 1/2 years to collect all the bits, I wonder how long the appeal of the model will last...

Anyway, back to your question. From what I've seen of the kit, it appears to be mainly etched brass and cast white metal for soldered construction. If I was biulding it, I'd build it first, then paint...

It is NOT exactly the same as the DJH model as that is all metal. This new kit is based on the DJH original, they are supplying some parts, but other bits such a the boiler and wheel centres will be produced in China in plastic - and so in theory should be much cheaper to produce. For further details look at http://www.modelrailforum.com/forums/index...15&start=15 where wiggy25 has actually spoken to DJH about this - they are still writing the instructions as new pieces are produced !!

Hope that helps

Mike
