Hornby’s much-anticipated, completely retooled versions of the streamlined ‘Princess Coronation’ Pacifics are due out any time now – and compared with previous versions of the model, they will be in a different league, with allowances made for a huge number of extra features and body detailing.
These will include a sliding cab roof, flanges over the front bogie where the cylinder by-pass valves had to be hidden, the Hudd ATC apparatus, speed recorders, different handle positions on the front casing, streamlined lamps, the correct sand box filler caps, brake blocks, different chimneys, slotted front steps, the extra catch on the front casing for those that needed it and extra access panels.
And all this is not forgetting the streamlined tenders, both with and without shrouds.
Thinking about our December-issue cover picture of Barry H Freeman’s Winter Wayfarers painting, the original of which is owned by Pete Waterman, there’s never been a better time to replicate it in OO-scale model form!
