If i thought First gen DMUs were a bit thin on the ground that's nothing compared to the near total lack of RTR EMUs in OO.
I'd like nothing better than a WYPTE Class 308... short of trying one of the kits and trying to build one (which wouldn't be advisable for me as i muck up even the simple model aeroplanes for 7-11 year olds, lets face it some of us just aren't that practical), but why do none of the model companies produce such stock?
I go looking at what's available and i have an endless choice of locos... 50s, 66s etc. locos, locos everywhere. Which is good. But for anyone modelling the 1980s and 1990s when most passenger stock was by multiple units rather than loco hauled i find their omission something odd.
The Southern region around London has for years relied upon EMUs for the most part, CIGs, CEPs, VEPs, REPs, SUBs, BILs etc. and yet there's nothing out there for those. Execpt for that very old model based loosely on a Sub.
Someone modelling Manchester could well benefit from, 303/304/305/309s,504s and 506s and yet there's none of those either. The 304/5/8s could even share the same moulds, 504s are not that unalike either.
This is without even considering the lack of second gen EMUs!
I think there's big opportunity in the market being missed here.
