They are 7mm scale-ish as they used an Atlas F9 as the basis of the body.
Ted Freemans decals once again make them look better.
It is unfortunate that only posts praising the models were left after a number of posts that pointed out minor shortcomings in the models, quite apart from the question of scale and the relative size of decals, were removed.For those who are not looking here is a link to that thread.
Criticism is the sure fire way of turning a modeller off, especially if those doing the criticism don't have the ability or desire to model themselves. Allan BrownBut without constructive criticism, how can a modeller improve his work, as we all wish to do?
Did the modeller ask for all this or just wanted to show off his model ? Was he personally happy with what he had made ? did he pronounce it a fully scale and accurate model ? Did he ask what others thought wrong? I wonder ?If he hadn't wanted any comments, he wouldn't have posted the photographs.

Did he ask what others thought wrong? I wonder ?The answer is no but if he really wanted to show us his handiwork which was excellent by the way then he should accept fair criticism of something that was obviously wrong. We were not pointing out faults per se just pointing out that a slip up had been made in both the position and size of the plate. Any modeller putting his models on display is asking to have someone criticise something on it, just that some take the criticism the wrong way or read it differently. Nothing is perfect and models are one such place that criticism's should be welcome. No one said the models were bad or something just like M636 said someone's research was a bit off that is all. To me people that come up and say your model of XYZ locomotive has a fault I can see, then I ask them what and then have another look at the model and most probably they are right.
