Rapido have sent through the first CAD drawings of the forthcoming Class 92 in N and we thought our supporters might like a preview.
There are some corrections to be made, and a fair amount of detail still to be added. The bufferbeam drawgear has not yet been added, and the cosmetic valance is shown.
The pantographs are poseable and will feature a photo etched head, as seen on our Class 390 Pendolino. There are a number of other separate and photo-etched detail parts. The BR arrows will not be moulded into the bodyshell, nor will the Channel Tunnel roundels.
As further refinements are made we will show more images, but we felt those who have pledged to this project to make it happen deserve to see the progress we are making.
We are anticipating that the CAD drawings will be complete by the Warley National Model Railway Exbibition at the NEC, where we are sharing a stand with Rapido trains, and we look forward to seeing our supporters there and discussing this and other projects, including our new modern wagon.
