    On what I can see the VAA and OAA wagons look very good and worth the money. Something else I need to save up for. :)

    On first impressions they look reasonable. The thing which stands out as being a bit naff are the wheels and brake discs. The disc brakes should be recessed slightly and not right up to the edge of the tyre. The effect of which makes the whole wheel look a big chunky/2D/toy train like. Hopefully they can sort that or if not modellers could take the discs off, file the back down, and replace.

    If post 70 is anything to go by, I think a deal might have been done whereby the tank wagons will only be available in REGGAE REGGAE SAUCE livery :eek:

    I like all of 'em... not sure I can stump up £150 all at once, that's all :confused: ... better start saving again!
    The idea of a 'get-together' buy is a good one though :thumbs: To save further postage to each individual, they could be distributed at an Event such as Telford, etc....:cool:

    That was my thinking Jordan.:thumbs:.

    For example.... If certain members got together and could meet up at a show then those members would save a £5 per wagon plus postage:thumbs:.
    We could say next years Halifax or Telford ( dont think they will be available till early next year ) that would give each member sufficiant time to save :thumbs:

    Anymore views/ideas or even candidates for purchases:D

    Anyone interested then email me your requirements and I'll do the honours. As I live in Telford then it's not so far for me to cart em ;)

    Shall we start a list of who/how many for next years Telford then.;)

    Yeah that would be good so like I said email me your requirements gents or ladies and I'll be all over it like a tramp on vodka :D

    The list currently stands at 8 confirmed orders. Hot cakes spring to mind :eek::p

    At this rate we might be on for a 2nd list :thumbs:

    Other that the brake discs, as Tom mentioned, the vans don't look too bad at all. I'll reserve judgement until I see a decorated example though, that often throws up things that it's hard to spot on an unpainted sample.

    Ah, I now recognise the model - looks like the old Airfix kit!! This "predates" the VAA & OAA for Era, really, doesn't it?

    Probably tells something that our combined 'Pre-Order' list is all VAA's and OAA's at the moment....

    There is only one photo representing the type. Regent tanks had a circular name board. They don't appear to be trying to represent e very difference between what they are going to produce - all this pre-judgement based on early photos is simply unacceptable.

    I'm very tempted by a short rake of those class B tankers:drool:..........maybe four of them behind a Hymek :cool:

    I shall wait to see what the production models look like, but I expect to have 10 of the B tankers on my own - Heyside eats wagons! - to go behind my 9F. I've always wanted that, but couldn't face building 10 of MMPs excellent offerings.

    I have to say I don't see any pre-judgement, just good mannered discussion of a forthcoming, and rather exciting, product.

    I'd only be getting 1 Class B tanker, so it seems a bit cheeky saying I'd like to join in the combined Pre-order, but if it helps out with the numbers than I will if I may please?
