Accurascale has unveiled plans to produce a number of OO/1:76, 4mm Class 55 Deltic

"Presenting; The Class 55 Deltic in 4mm. Our first locomotive!
The wait is over and the news is finally here. Our first British outline locomotive will be the iconic Class 55 Deltic locomotives! We've been working hard to bring you the definitive Deltic; with a long list of detail variations covering the class from their first day of service to their current condition in preservation. We're doing 17 different Deltics in our main range, and the other five in special edition commissions, so you can have the full class!
ou can secure yours with a £30 deposit per locomotive, either DCC ready with a price of £160, or with a state of the art DCC sound model for £250. They are due Q4 2019.
If you want to avail of the deposit, place your order and select 'bank deposit' as payment. We will send you a login for deposit payment then in the coming days!
We are also actively investigating offering EM and P4 wheelsets as an additional option for customers who model those respective gauges. We will provide updates on that as the project progresses for our finescale friends.
