Q1

Unless its being modeled Ex-works!

er, its not a real Q1, it is a toy! As for realistic, it looks more realistic than an "eletric" steam engine.

and the "smoke" is

I have not found this to be true, except for when I have tipped the oil bottle!

Spitfire, Hurricane, Blenheim, Hampden, Wellington, Gladiator, Fairey Battle, Beaufort, Lysander, Defiant, Lockheed Hudson & Swordfish. Some of them landing on a carrier might be interesting......

Cheers Robt P.

Thanks for the info. I should have remembered Spitfire but I must admit I'm not very familiar with things GW.

Wasn't it a Swordfish flying from the Ark Royal that damaged the Bismarck?

Yep.

Spitfires, Hurricanes and Gladiators were all regularly operated from carriers, while Lysanders (being STOL aircraft) had no problems on carriers and were operated from carriers and merchant ships on covert ops.

Then something to avoid modelling in my book, but at this stage this is unfair criticism because I've only had one through my hands briefly, but even then something didn't appear quite right - it seemed to lack the front end chunkiness of the prototype.

I'll try to make some decent pictures of the model when I get some to play with, then I'll try to make a fair comparison with the prototype.

0-6-0 would have managed this! There is room for extra weight inside the boiler, but I intend fillng this space with a smoke unit, so i will have to see what I can squeeze in over the weekend and see how performance increases.

I might as well mention however that this is the best rtr British steam loco I have baught, the crawl and smoothness of the motor out of the box is superb, equal to my £200+ American steam stuff.

Trust you to get OT. I'm flying off to Hattons now to see the new Q1 and the D400 Ewbank diesel, whilst keeping a watchful eye out for Fokkers.

When you get to Warley you'll see a model of Lime Street Station; the boys will be waiting for yer;-)

Just seen the Q1 (Was it designed by Spike Milligan?) in Hattons. The standard of these models now is tremendous.

Does it include my birthplace just up Brownlow Hill, or is it just the station?

Good stuff. Just black coffee, thanks.

Nah! That was Fred Milligan. Spike designed the Q5, Q6, Q7, Q8, and Q9. There's a lot of it about. (yup, he did that too!)

The project isn't finished yet, no doubt if you point the location out to them they'll mark the spot with a star.

They were going to have a model of the Cathedral but NASA wouldn't let them borrow Apollo.

They need a bigger baseboard, then they could get the other one in. Anyway, one of the N.American model suppliers must make a wigwam...

When I first heard it in 195something it was the Polish RAF flyer talking to the girls and parents at the Convent School's Prize Evening.... ;-)

Anyway have a nice time at Warley, I'm only jealous 'cos I'm not going this year. I hope you find loads of N Gauge stuff, maybe you'll even come back with a diesel!
