    All in good time Noel, all in good time. But there are big things coming down the tracks for Irish modellers. We don't want to announce too much until all the pieces are in place, but it will be well worth watching this space for very exciting times ahead!

    Perhaps it took a few years to get up to speed, but the technology and the market is evolving fast and it's amazing what's now possible and the timeframes they are possible in!
    It took 2 years to bring out the Ballasts. Bubbles and Taras are nowhere to be seen half way through 2017. I'm not criticizing the rate of production at all. I just think your plans are unbelievably over optimistic. After 2018 you'll have to take a ten year break to shift all that stock you've accumulated. 141s were still in the shops 7 or 8 years after manufacture, you can still get a lot of the 201s and 071s too. These being the most popular Irish models anyone could produce short of an A class.

    Anyhow this is another thread spiraling off topic so I'll say no more about RTR.

    Delighted to see MIR back on the go. Plenty of room in the market for kits.

    With all due respect David you are judging something that you have no understanding of what's going on behind the scenes. As I said, all will be revealed very soon.

    I also think that it's only fair that we bring this back on topic of the MIR kits after Dave took it off course.

    Do you happen to have a drawing for the standard CIE cattle wagon?

    With all due respect Fran, how do you know what I know or don't know? Have you discovered a way to clone customers? What will you do differently that all the model shops and Murphys Models haven't done to shift stock?

    Also get it right. It was Noel to took the thread off topic. There are very few threads here that stay oh topic. You guys just use that phrase to end arguments you don't like.

    With equal respect David, the thread was on topic until your post no.21, which additionally included poor language.

    Let's keep this on MIR's return to activity, which is to be applauded and supported, lest the ban hammer is produced.

    Thanks Glenderg for the drawing that is most interesting, I have come across one how to article in the old Model railway constructor on building chassis, but I am sure there is another one on how to build LMS style cattle wagons, its a good article just need to go back and read it again.

    I know Leslie does a GNR style cattle wagon, but if MIR where to do the CIE version as well that has to be a good thing.

    The CIE one is an absolute essential for ANY 1960-75 layout.... would be a great addition.
