We’d like to share some late-breaking news with you all!
We are delighted to announce that Bowaters Models have now joined the ranks of Accucraft dealers. Based in West Sussex, the firm has been developing an extensive range of laser cut kits in 1:32 scale and the narrow gauges and has recently added the Fareham Carriage Works and Bona Models lines to the brands it carries.
Jon Reeves of Bowaters said, “We have had a long working relationship with Accucraft (having used their couplings for a while), even designing specific rolling stock to run with their latest locomotives (their Adams Radial and upcoming GWR 43xx being prime examples). We’re delighted to be able to list their products and look forward to any additions they bring out! To keep things simple for now and to allow the business to continue to grow, we will only be listing what Accucraft has in stock for the time being. It is hoped and expected as this side of the business grows, we will be able to accept pre orders later in 2022/early 2023. We do have a few things planned regarding new engine releases but we will say what they are at the time of release.”

With shipping fast approaching, the factory has been able to share some images of all the liveries announced for this lovely little engine. Hardly needing any further help in the looks department we feel that they represent one of the most attractive offerings on the current UK market.
Available to pre-order through your local retailer or direct from us, they should be here early in 2022! Still available at their pre-order price of just £1595.00 although only a limited number remain available in the first batch. You can see full details here.

Another date for your diaries! Unfortunately the first attempt to hold this show was scuppered by Covid-19 so full marks to the organisers for holding their nerve and trying again in 2022. We look forward to seeing you there.
