Swift Sixteen War Department in either 32mm or 45mm gauge bogies. Our own bogie project isn't ready to be used for such a purpose just yet. We'll have more information at a later date when it's appropriate regarding using our own designs.

Something I've been keeping very undercover where it will remain until the time is right, I'll admit its happening but not a lot else. For now at least. It'll surface once a few more issues are resolved. But let me put it this way if you thought just plywood pricing dropping was a good sign, wait until you see what else I'm up to. To say everything is changing this year for Bowaters Models would be about right!

Time for the final Peterborough reveals! The 13m WHR coaches! Covering coaches 2043 to 2048 and 2010, these coaches complete the main WHR Range we will be releasing. The notable exception is Glaslyn which will be available at Exeter all being well. In time, we may also release 2011 if we can get the required technical data. Priced at £110 in MDF and £125 in Plywood, these coaches are the perfect addition to our WHR train and will be available to order at Peterborough. Come and see them for yourself!!!

Image

Oh, and in regard to pricing, that should very much be considered a guide price. We have something special planned for Peterborough that we can genuinely say no one will see coming! Well, these are the final ones we're showing you before the show. We have 4 more that will be revealed at the show. Its safe to say these 4 are highly anticipated.

Now, time for the final reveals! What's that. I thought you'd already done that. About that........

Firstly, Coach 15!

Image

We asked if you wanted coach 15. You said you did. So here it is!!!! It’s ended up slightly more expensive than her sister but we still feel it offers great value for money. Priced at £105 in MDF or £120 in Plywood. Available at Peterborough. Along with 4 other shall we say related projects....... Prices are only a rough guide (well it was at the time of writing, see below for the real pricing!!!). Is this the fastest Bowaters Models has been able to turn around a project? Probably. Plenty more rapid turnarounds to come!!!

Now onto the good stuff. Seeing as they're out in the wild, time to properly reveal the 2 major 2019 projects we've been working on.

Image

A while ago, we announced ranges covering both South African Railway and a set of Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway Heritage Coaches. Examples of BOTH ranges will be available for viewing at Peterborough! We aim to have a wide range of models on display and we're sure there's something for everyone!

For more information on our FR & WHR Heritage range, view the range on our website!:- http://www.bowatersmodels.co.uk/ffestin ... age-range/

Image

For more information on our SAR range, view the range on our website:- http://www.bowatersmodels.co.uk/coming- ... -railways/

We also have some additional information regarding pricing on the Peterborough show website! For the first time ever, we've been able to make some major changes to a large percentage of our products regarding pricing. Have a look for yourself:- https://www.nationalgardenrailwayshow.o ... rs-models/

Image

We're also delighted to present to you the latest edition of our catalogue along with our new price list. Both are effective as of the 1st of April which is when the website update is aimed to go live with the new models on. Have a look for yourself as we're sure we have something for every modeller in our new expanded range!

Its technically available now. Its listed on our website as under 'On File'. Sadly we don't see a place in them in the main range at the moment deciding to focus on other projects for now however the design is proven (its based on 102 abet with new sides that we can test cut before sending one out) so we can produce it to order. Let me know if you'd like one as I can slot them into a production run with relative ease! Same with any other kits on that page:- http://www.bowatersmodels.co.uk/on-file/
