News from Mercian Models

I enquired recently as to why the Ffestiniog (or Festiniog if you are modelling in the olden days) Railway England Loco model that Mercian Models had made was shown as unavailable on their website:

Trevor from Mercian wrote back:

"We are aiming at doing another batch but are exploring the possibility in having a ready to run chassis built for it [ the project has been started] and we would like to aim for October for the prototype, and hopefully end of year for sales. The price target is the same as the kit [£90.50].  The kit will be designed with a compromise wheelbase to accomadate both the longer and shorter wheelbase locos. The body tops already do the variants. "

cool eh!
