Class 92 Update - Price Increase Deadline Extended!
We last provided a Class 92 update in November, detailing the technology that had gone into the locomotive and why this will represent a true next level locomotive in OO/4mm. It included a demonstration of the DCC sound and working pantograph mechanisms as well as the excellent running characteristics.
We also outlined a number of tooling refinements and changes we would be implementing in the model, such as brass horns, better glazing fitting, springs on the top of the bogie side frames and adjustments to the pan heads, which are now completed and in place on the latest pre-production model seen here.
This body configuration also represents the lowered Channel Tunnel 'Polo Mints' for the two EWS liveried locomotives; 92001 which is part of our first release, and it's stablemate 92031, which we may do in the future.
In our previous update we explained that a price increase from £159.99 to £189.99 for DC/DCC ready and from £249.99 to £279.99 for DCC sound fitted would be necessary for any new Class 92 order made after Friday, March 19th, 2021. We of course guaranteed to honour any active order made for the lower price point before this deadline. Orders have flooded in as a result, with modellers seeing what a special bargain this locomotive represents, with some of the more popular liveries now running low on capacity of available orders.
However, since we have yet to receive decorated samples, we have decided to extend this deadline to allow any modellers sitting on the fence to make up their minds when seeing finished models. Our factory has advised us that we will receive decorated samples in late May. Therefore, we will extend the deadline to four weeks after we reveal decorated samples. Delivery for finished models is slated for late Q3/Early Q4 2021.
So, if you want to avail of the bargain of the year, you now have some more time to play with. Order here, with a £30 deposit guaranteeing your early bird price. These running numbers and liveries are only available direct via Accurascale!
