The target UK RRP is 2500.00 - we haven't proposed them as kits at this juncture since the model has been developed from the 61XX which was never intended to be a kit and whose construction is somewhat different from the Aster principles. If there is overwhelming demand we might consider how we could do this. Radial tanks are still available as both RTR and kits in the UK and I am sure Union City still has inventory of both.

Any chance of them being offered in a GWR pre-WWI lined green version?

I'm 99% sure none of these locos carried lining until repainted by British Railways in the 1950s.

Page 87 of Haresnape and Swain's "Churchward Locomotives: A Pictorial History" has two pre-WWI photos of 4301 and 4321, fully lined with copper-capped chimney and garter crest.

I just realized that the outside steam pipes were a later addition, starting in 1928, so a pre-WWI livery wouldn't be appropriate anyway. Might be a fun little project to backdate it though...

Based on various online sources I've read, the unlined mid-chrome green would've generally been used on mixed-traffic locomotives from 1906 to the BR era, although obviously -- as Richard points out -- there were exceptions. Lining and the garter crest was normally reserved for express passenger engines...live and learn.

I've ordered one in unlined green with "GREAT WESTERN" on the tender to represent 4326 as it would've appeared in the late 1920's-early 1930's. That particular loco, by the way, was not withdrawn until 1957, so it's possible that it would've carried any one of the liveries that Accucraft UK is offering at one time or another.

Last but not least, one very thorough source of information on how these locos were painted is at URL http://www.ianrathbonemodelpainting....es-1923-39.php

Lining on GWR locos was much more prevalent before World War I. After the war it was mostly reserved for express passenger locos.

GWR 4301 with lining and garter crest, ca. 1911.
