    I'm a fan of stanier creations as well. I just hope I get my way now as well. I've banged on about it for long enough!!

    You could all just buy this version of the 15xx!

    If you want a better model than this I think that you have to let MOK know that.

    The above model has quite a few new castings on it, you don't get the lovely lost wax castings on the standard CRT model,
    I'm sending Dave Sharp a CD of detail close up pictures of 1501 tomorrow

    I want one, but anyone know (roughly) what Dave will be looking at per kit?

    I'm not sure yet of a price.
    I should find out as I'm down for two!

    I was talking to Dave at Telford he said it would be around £350 for the Stanier Tank.

    I'm guessing the 15 will be around the same

    That seems awfully good value, or am I just reeling after the Finney V2 purchase? Haha..

    Hi All

    Whilst at the SVR recently for a Sir Keith Park photo charter I took the opportunity to take some more photos of 1501 with views for modellers.
    In this to topic #92 there's already a full sized photo.

    He is prepared to do a S7 version if there is enough interest.

    Hi Len,

    I'd love to put my name down for one, but funds and time are tight at the moment with the new addition .. Even if I did grab one in a few years if he did decide to do a run in s7, I wouldn't want him to be hanging on the promise of my order, especially after the Std4 debacle..

    Thanks for the information, but regretfully "I'm out..."

    JB.

    Dave has now sourced drawings from the NRM for the 15 project, I believe that he has started work on it in
    Between finishing off the 9F.

    I've had an email from Dave at MOK this morning. The 15xx kit is now in development, there is no time frame for completion but I think it will be worth the wait.
    Depending on how well the sales of wheels are for the 9F he might also do a wheel set for the 15 as well so if you have a 9F on order add a wheel set as well!!!!

    According to the latest G0G Gazette (Feb 2017) received today, 'Our next kit will be the 15xx. Work has begun and we hope to have this finished in time for Telford".
    Well, I'm excited even if no-one else is!

    I knew Dave was working on it but didn't realise he was aiming for Telford!!!
    Exciting times ahead!

    To be fair, he hasn't specified which Telford!
