THE N CLASS:
This head on shot shows the lamp irons, rivets and handrails plus the running number on the front too.
This shot shows pretty much the same level of detail.
Perhaps my only problem is why is there NO coal load in the tender? If Bachmann could fit one in the tender with all there other steamers then why couldn't they do the same with the N class?
FINAL THOUGHTS: a good model i plan to get an N class (though not this model) but those i like the weathered ones this is the model for you!
THE CLASS 08:
Well.. for a Bachmann 08 that may lack some detail that the Hornby one has but this one doesn't it is still damn well a great model!
The hazard warning stripes are very nicely and accurately painted. The wipers and warning signs are present and lights too.
The livery is the most eye catching thing. White wheel walls, Red side rods, White buffers with painted grease on them. Wow NO 08 from Hornby has ever appeared in a striking livery like this.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Great model and i eagerly look forward to buying one =D
