Hi Iain,

I'm really pleased how they've come out and it's nice to be able to release them. It feels like a fair old process to get to this stage. More to come as well (as you may have deduced from the missing codes), hopefully later in the year.

Hope you can make it to Scalefour North.

I've spent some time in preparation for my visit to the UK coming up with a project list for the Highpeak Wagon Works and came up with 14 projects for the next 12 months, most of which will incorporate some of these offerings, especially the castings. Looking forward to seeing you next weekend.

Iain, it would be nice to bump into you on the Sunday.

A quick interim update from Rumney Models before the next major set of releases in September.

Firstly a couple of new items in the form of Express Dairy milk tank plates in both 4mm and 7mm scales. These include both the company plate and the distinctive round number plate that was attached to the baulks at the tank ends. The numbers were Express Dairy’s own fleet numbers and were generally grouped according to who built the milk tank. If you want something specific then please inquire or else you will get a random number picked from the box they are in. The plates are etched on 0.1mm stainless steel and nicely complement the United Dairies/Unigate plates released last year. Details on the 4mm plates can be found here, and the 7mm ones here.

Prices are £2.50 a set for the 4mm version and £3.50 a set for the 7mm ones.

Secondly Rumney Models is moving house. The new address for all postal correspondence is as follows:

3 Warren Terrace
Trellech
Monmouthshire
NP25 4PH

The house move will mean that I won’t be able to process any orders from now until the week commencing the 17th. Please bear this in mind. I will be able to respond to emails during this period though there may be some delay in doing so.

Also a reminder that Rumney Models will be at Larkrail on the 15th July. I look forward to seeing some of you there.

Justin

I can't claim to be quite so prolific, but I have made some progress: extended Bachmann body with end-mounted heater coils, Cambridge Custom Transfers lettering and Rumney models underframe and ladders. The next step is some weathering. The model is intended for the 1960s scene on Chris Lamacraft's Hemyock, when the creamery was served by regent oil tanks. The wheels are therefore EM rather than P4 ...

Thanks Rod and Alastair. All going quite smoothly so far which is nice.

Those tank wagons are looking great guys! Need to try and get some transfers sorted for mine at some point so I can get it finised.

Scaleforum is just around the corner and that means a new set of releases from Rumney Models.

The ‘headline act’ this time is an underframe kit for the BR unfitted Grampus (B.34 - £15). This includes replacement baskets and door spring and step detailing for the body. For those who don’t want to go to the extent of building a complete replacement underframe the baskets, solebar and body side door springs along with the corner steps are available on their own as a detailing pack (B.109 - £3.50).

There is a new underframe for RCH 21T Morton brakes hoppers (B.29 - £13), covering mainly private owner types and also a 17’6” x 9’ Morton brake underframe (B.32 - £11) for grouping era general merchandise wagons.

To compliment the underframes are screw couplings (B.96 - £1.50). These are etched on 0.015” nickel silver to try and give a more prototypically robust appearance and come in sets of 4 with various length links. Completing the etched products are CSB carrier tags to suit Brassmasters hornblocks (X.03 - £1.50).

The range of whitemetal springs and axleboxes continues to expand with RCH 2 part, LMS 2 part, LMS vertical Platefront, LNER cast and LNER welded axleboxes combined with 5 leaf springs along with LMS 2 part, LMS vertical Platefront, LMS sloping Platefront and LNER cast axleboxes combined with the LMS 7 leaf spring as fitted to wagon with the LMS clasp brake. All types come in packs of 4 castings which cost £2.50.

Lastly are castings and etched details for later type BR Bogie Bolster C bolsters. These distinctive bolsters were fitted from around 1954 and can be used to detail the Bachmann model. There are two types covering diagrams 1/474 & 1/477 (F.03A - £6.50) and 1/475 (F.03B - £6.50). Each set consists of 4 cast bolsters with etched bolster pins and D links.

Further details on all of the above can be found via the Latest Releases page on my website.

Also just to reiterate that Rumney Models moved in July of this year. The new address for all postal correspondence is as follows:

3 Warren Terrace
Trellech
Monmouthshire
NP25 4PH

I hope to see some of you at Scaleforum,
Justin

I have about 30+ Rumney Models brass kits in the pile waiting to be worked on :D

I also picked up 2 x Grampus kits on Sunday too!

Looking forward to seeing some of these running on Mostyn soon enough.

Happy New year to all.

Having had a review of Rumney Models trading operations I've decided to have a bit of a spring clean of the catalogue. Nothing immediate but some items are now slated for withdrawl and others will only be available in minimum quantities. Details are in my New Year's update on the Rumney Models website which can be found via this link.

Cheers,
Justin
