DON'T knock it at least I am trying to do something, with only one good hand.

HI T Gauge

It is just ashame that they had to cut the cost of it down as the daul bi lights would have made it look evan better.

I have got both now from T gauge and I think that they have done a very good job on the body and transfers.
Still the issue of no 3 axles being used?

Mine has also arrived and I have to say I’m very impressed! It looks as though the livery is printed directly to the shell as it’s got very crisp lines and really looks the part.
I’m not too fussed about the head and tail lights as I always found this a bit of a gimmick, especially considering there is no internal lighting in most units.
Also, correct me if I’m wrong, but a class 67 is a bo-bo so only has 2 axles anyway? Hopefully we’ll see some 3 axle locos in the future!

Almost certainly these are pad printed, as are nearly all RTR models these days. Same technology used to print golf balls ;)

There are persistent rumors ofa 3 axle bogie, supposedly it's in development in China. That would be sweet given the Deltic and E8 shells available!
