AD60 - More Photos Courtesy of James McInerney.

With the AD60 re-run having left the South China Sea on its way to Port Botany here are some more photos of the red lined and centenary liveries. Thanks James.

AD60 Re-Run: The AD60 re-run is due in Port Botany on the 21st of April. Easter may slow clearance up a bit but we expect to receive the shipment by the 28th and delivery will commence shortly there after. The Brisbane exhibition will also interrupt proceedings a little so it will probably be the 3rd of May before posting out hits full swing. As usual everyone who has an order in for an AD60 will be contacted before their model is put in the post. Any outstanding balances should be paid now as orders with outstanding balances will be dealt with last. Posting out is expected to be completed by the end of May.
R Class Test Shots

The test shots received are not a complete set with a few important items such as the stack missing.

Next step is a fully working engineering sample.

For those who want a close up look the samples will be at the Hobson's Bay exhibition.

"R Class test shots - Except that I have them in my hand I might not believe it" A not-quite full set of test shots for the R class arrived by air from the factory this morning. By mid-morning the bits were being assembled into a coal and an oil burner. Assembly is not as easy as you would expect as there are hundreds of parts some of which are still in their plastic bags as I have no idea what they are or where they go but the results certainly look like an R class. Photography is next and I will put some shots up here on the weekend. The next step is a fully operational engineering sample which we expect to receive from the factory in June.
