The first BBA and BLA engineering prototype samples have arrived, with painted samples expected at the Warley Model Railway Show this November.
Cavalex Models has shared images of the first engineering prototypes of its BBA and BLA wagons. Highlighting the multi-media approach to their construction with a die-cast chassis, brass coupling hooks and stanchions and injection-moulded and etched-brass tops, detail is very promising.
Commenting on the images, Cavalex Models said, "There are a few minor tweaks to be made to the design and then painted samples will be produced."
Interested parties will be able to see the samples on display at The Bury St. Edmunds exhibition on September 28, with painted samples on display at The Warley Model Railway Show on November 23/24, 2019.
