4mm kit/RTR model of Caley 439 class?

Post by [email protected] »

I am building up my stud of locos seen at Aberdeen Ferryhill during the 1950's/early 60's ...would love to be able to add a 439.
Any interest from the RTR boys for such a model? The 439 was a stunning looking loco (just in the middle of reading the 419 story recently published)..surely a candidate for a model??

DJH do a 439 kit - https://www.djhmodelloco.co.uk/prodpage ... uctid=3055

It's not entirely accurate, but it gives a pretty good impression of the class and I think I'm right in saying that as things currently stand it appears to be all that is available in 4mm. The 439 class is however listed in the current BRM 00 wishlist poll - https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... w/viewform - it is suggested that this carries some weight with manufacturuers, so you could cast a vote for the 439. I think I'm right in saying that it has appeared reasonably high in previous wishlist polls, but obviously not high enough.
