As James from MOAB T&F series would say, "Shut my mouth!" Those models are absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!!! The detail is perfect. When I first saw them I thought they were the actual TV models stripped from their paint. You could probably pass them for the real models. Like Santa Fe Bluff said since the models are larger, much larger then the HO, you can add more details. I can't wait to see what Thomas and Percy will look like. I'm hoping they'll have extremely accurate faces, and I'm sure they will. I know they will definitely have better detail than the HO. My God I'm gonna pee my pants I'm so excited!!! It's a good thing my mom and I are making a garden railroad this year (well we're not entirely sure yet). Again  FANTASTIC models!!!!!!!  Cheesy

Hi
Please tell me one of the extras supplied with the locomotive is going to be a proper English smoke box door (and some other details) that can be fitted instead of the face.
I am a fan of the real Thomas not the modern #### and hope it will be the  Proper Rev Awdry locomotive which means no face not the unreal TV one.
Please don't mould the faces in the rolling stock so they can be painted out
by English large scale fans the stock looks like it could be convincing UK
stock if it hasn't got the faces
regards John

I hate being Captain Obvious, but they had faces in the books too. Also, it's going to be the TV style. That's a GIVEN.

You can run it, but I assume you cannot leave it out overnight.

I hate to say this but the 1934 or was it 38 stories which I had copies of, did not have faces they where proper locomotive as are all the Thomas characters.
Nor did the articles written by the great man on the S.I.R in the English model press
in fact it was these that got me interested in model trains in the first place.

Which he was just telling those stories to his son, so at the time wasn't even a "true" series.

Awdry also did small sketches before the illustrations for the book was made, and even then the engines had faces.

This is interesting
I wonder why the books I had never had the faces??
I know the railway built by the REV Awdery certainly did not have faces,
and where accurate models of the specific locomotives in all except colour

True, Awdry's models did not have faces, but they weren't 100% accurate. His original Annie, Clarabel and Thomas were HO scale, and his model of Gordon (A Gresley A1) was made from a Tri-Ang/Rovex Princess.

The models Awdry had did give the names to at least one locomotive in the books.

When Awdry brought a Gaitey 57XX as a spare engine, many visitors commented on how it waddled like a Duck, hence where his name comes from Wink
