New raft of exclusive Sentinel models announced

The third batch of Model Rail magazine's popular 'OO' gauge ready-to-run Sentinel 4wVBTs has just been revealed in the latest issue (MR187). Four different liveries are to be offered, each filling gaps in what has been previously available. 

Great Western fans are offered No.12, complete with a shirtbutton-style GWR emblem (a fictitious prototype), while London Midland Region BR modellers will be pleased with 47181 in unlined black with the early style of crest.

LNER 'Y3' No.148, complete with red and yellow lining is also offered, while a National Coal Board blue example (also fictitious), with wasp ends, completes the quartet.
MR-013 NCB blue Sentinel
I had great fun painting up these four samples, using spare bodyshells and components left over from the previous production runs. Needless to say that the NCB version is my favourite and I'm looking forward to having a working model on my colliery layout in the near future.

Development is at the sample stage, while final adjustments are made to the finish specifications and, therefore, we have no definite delivery date yet. However, advance orders are now being taken on all four of these models, with a price of £79.95 including p&p. With limited runs of each, they're sure to sell out quickly, so get 'em while you can!

To place an order, call 01209 613984 or go to
