Accurascale GWR 7800 Manor Class 24/04/2021
Fully Tooled First Sample Revealed!#
Accurascale announced there first steam locomotive project, the GWR 78xx Manor Class 4-6-0 tender locomotives, back in early February and showed an early test shot of the completed tooling. Since that announcement they have made further progress, and can now show off a fully tooled sample with detail parts and etchings in place.
Please note that this is a first casting from the tooling. There will be further refinements to plastic, die cast and etched parts, as well as tweaks to the tooling based on this first sample. However, we think you will agree that it is shaping up quite nicely indeed.
As you can see, much use has been made of diecasting to ensure they pack as much weight as possible into the locomotive to aid traction as well as smooth and reliable running. High fidelity etched and plastic components add that extra finesse to elevate this model to the next level, giving the Manor a quality and robust feel.
