I understand the long awaited Superquick A12 coaling tower and also the A13 Ash plant are now released

Their web site failes to show anything!

Has anyone actually got one and built them as yet and are there any photos of these anywhere

I haven't noticed them at either of the shows I have attended this month. Likewise no-one I know in the trade has mentioned anything about them. Perhaps, like dragons, they materialise if you really want them to.

I've seen a report on the DOGA message board and the coaling stage apparently very poor, the joints were described as being substandard, and there's no walkways or ladders. I think it's nearly 4 years since the first flyers for the coaling stage appeared, so it sounds rather disappointing.

There's a brief review in the November (current issue) of Hornby Magazine. It seems they actually got their hands on one to build. You can look at the photo of the one they built and decide for yourself. It's not in the same league as the Townscape model but then neither is the price. I've been on the look out for one in the shops but I've not seen one either.

I saw the review after my original posting and have to say that in my opinion it needs a further four years of development to get the look right.
