Thread: eBay Watch

    An interesting item for a specialist collector who most likely might never wish to build it. How far the hobby has come from white metal, to brass, resin and finally onto high quality injection moulded plastic.

    Thanks Ciarang, thanks for the heads up I am watching this one, does anyone know what the are like to build? If I do win it, I might have to have it in the early as delivered livery.

    A lot easier to buy a Murphys one and go with that. Time has passed these kits by

    Thank Blaine, to be honest I am looking more for class A, B and C Diesel locos in the green and silver livery period. does anyone know if these are on Murphy's model hit list?

    Hi Colin. They are not on Murphy Models current nor future plans list, but right now they are available in RTR or Kit form from SilverFox models (see below). I recommend using a quality centre drive AWD/AWP chassis instead of the recommended Hornby/Lima toy chassis. And . . . I strongly hope/suspect a high quality RTR fine scale model of the A class may be available from another vendor within the next few years. Noel

    SF A class (001)


    SF B101 class


    SF C class (original 1950s 201)


    They are vastly better performing models when mounted on a centre drive chassis (loads of useful and informative threads on forum about chassis options for these).

    Thanks for the update Noel most appreciated.
