Quainton Road Models Kits

I have become aware of problems in some of the etches in some kits. Those affected are:

K71303 GCR D.2B8 31ft 3rd

K71402 GCR D.49 31ft Fish Van

K71501 GCR D.1Y2 29ft Passenger Brake Van

The problem relates to the alignment of the Underpan and Bodypan, where the fixing holes for the parts do not line up correctly. To rectify the problems I have prepared replacement etched parts which will be sent to existing customers. However, depending on whether the kit has been started, and how far construction has proceeded, different versions of the corrected parts will be required.

If you have purchased one or more of these kits please make contact by clicking hereso I can understand what replacement part(s) need to be sent to you to overcome these problems.


S&T Wagon Works GCR Open Carriage Truck D.1T5 Kit

Further information has come to light concerning the type of buffers mounted on this vehicle. Those supplied in the original S&T kit are 4-bolt 1'-6” pattern. The correct pattern for this vehicle is 3-bolt 1’-10.5” So if you would like to return your set of 4-bolt buffers to me in unused condition I will substitute the correct 3-bolt pattern from my range at no charge.

I also produce a detailing kit for the this vehicle.
