Exciting News from Quainton Road Models

David Howes has informed me:

The kit for the MS&LR 6-wheel 29ft Passenger Brake Van D.1Y2 is now shipping at £85.
Next 6-wheeler will be the MS&LR 5-compartment 3rd at £90, with several more 6-wheelers coming over the summer.
Development work has started on a kit for the GCR 45ft Bogie Fish Van, based on a project in laser-cut MDF initiated by Steven Mills. Hopefully for August release.

My comments:
The six wheel coaches will be very useful to GC and LNER (C) modellers, and as for the bogie fish vans...I can only say that if the laser-cut bodies turn out half as good as the signal box from the same source they will be wonderful. Certainly preferable to soldering up multiple layers of etched brass, that's for sure. I can hardly wait. How lucky we are to have such an excellent throughput of GC kits coming along. May this state of affairs continue. To ensure it does, please support our friends in the trade with as much of your hard-earned as you can muster.
