Not too long ago Bachmann released their 4F Fowler models one of which was a model of one of 4 preserved while the other two had Johnson/Deeley tenders but just how good are these models?
Warning: The opinions in this blog are solely my own
But it's the model that is the most interesting piece. As usual Bachmann have done an out of this world job of the model. The model has sprung buffers, NEM couplings, rivets (like it should do) and a brake pipe that has already been fitted as it saves people from having to stick it on themselves.
The tender has no rivets but then the Johnson tender in real life did not have any rivets on the tender. There is cab interior that IS painted in the Sherbet Dab (cockney rhyming slang for cab) which will shut all the moaners up! There are also lamp irons present and a brake pipe on the rear of the tender.
OVERALL: A fantastic model and i look forward to purchasing one for myself.
