Hattons P Class

SECR P Class from Hattons
This was one of those must have items - although there's not an immediate project for it. The obvious is the late period (49-53) KESR with a Terrier and an 03/04 as the staple power. Possibly though something more rural-industrial. Though now Arun Quay is on the circuit, comparisons would be hard to avoid. A different scale/class/attitude, but the vibe would be the same. For the moment I'm quite happy just to enjoy the sheer craftsmanship of the model. We have certainly come a long way since the first of the Far East models of the early eighties and it is hard to visualise how things could improve from this.
