"Another RTR loco? That's the second one you've bought this year!", I hear you cry.
Guilty as charged. I appear to have fallen in to the trap that has already snared so many modellers. I have bought a toy chuffer just because I like it.
It's been a long process. The first production shot appeared over a year ago and the moment I saw the detailed cab, I knew I wanted one. Yes, there is no use for it at all on any of my layouts, but I don't care.
Just look at the exquisite workmanship going on in here. I'd struggle to produce a kit that looked this good and not just 'cos I'm not very good at making things. This little loco simply oozes character.
Of course, the cab glazing includes a joining piece that is very visible. And we really need a crew in there. It's far too clean too.
Basically, I've bought one and now (according to a proper collector) I'm working out how to ruin it.
