Hi Vic

There have been rumours about a r-t-r Replica MLV for a while. A few weeks ago this was listed on eBay:

but a bit pricey for me. Let us know if Replica have something positive to say.

For those that didn't see the feature, here the MLV is seen on the right sticking its nose out of the shed on Ashington. Sadly I didn't get any pics of just the unit on its own.... Dave's modelling is quite superb, his stock can really take the lens right close up - one to keep an eye out for on the exhibition circuit!

Visited the Epsom & Ewell exhibition today and spoke to the main man at Replica.

The body and chassis tooling have been completed for the MLV. (I saw examples of the body at Poole last November). The bogies will be plain with an added sideframe for which tooling is to be completed. The main hold up at the moment is specialist evaluation on the motor to be used ( 3 or 5 pole etc) which will have an impact on the final cost.

It is planned to issue plain green followed by blue/grey and jaffa cake. Current estimate is for Warley in November.

I heard from someone that the 3-pole motor runs well but for some reason the 5-pole is inconsistent which is causing a delay as customers might shy away from a 3-pole. Personaly i find that if the gearing is right and everything cleaned properly 3-pole motors are fine.

I would tend to agree, but as you say people may prefer (and probably expect) five pole motors with the resultant effect on sales.
