It's just a pity that there are no order forms and a scarcity of almost any other information about what is available on their web site/blog like livery and car numbers available unless I'm not looking in the right spot which makes it a bit hard for someone like myself who actually wants to purchase some.

Kingfisher, your best bet is to wait for one of the online stores (e.g. Australian Modeller) to get them in stock and sell them online.

I have an order form I got from somewhere, but it's on my laptop, and it was a pre-order version as well.

Fair point Kingfisher - I think I contacted Eureka about the model & he sent me an order form via email.

Mine turned up in the mail today.  However sans frames and bogies as ordered at the same time.  Will have to chase up where they are.  Confused

Happy mainlining,

Hi John,

Cheers Alex.

Thanks Alex,

How many would have to contact Ron to find this out?  Frustratingly, much waste of time and effort.

A simple note in the package, or on the blog would save some angst and worry, both for the customer and Ron C.  

Happy kitbashing.

Wait a minute you mean to tell me that the cars have had the body dispatched without the underframe and bogies on them. Then you are buying a kit of them if that is the case, but what you are receiving does not match the product description that I have seen that is that they are RTR. No mention of having to assemble underframes to cars and then add the bogies!

I cannot find any reference in their adverts or even on their website that say they are kits though, although they don't say they are ready to run either, but they infer it. What next a 59 class steamer or something in pieces that you have to assemble yourself. It would have been preferable to have added a note onto the website that said the bodies have been finished but are awaiting manufacture of the underframes and bogies plus assembling them. That way I think everyone would have been happy. Once all was done they could have been dispatched from the factory and delivered!

Doing something like this though is treading a very thin line between being on the right side of the consumer laws in Australia and mainly the one that says that samples must reasonably match the finished articles which really in this case it does not Sure things might need changing from the original sample supplied like paint or something but you cover your self by saying that the sample is close to the finished item but may need some changes made in production. But leaving out half of the car really is just a joke.

You've really got a beef with Eureka these days. The carriages are complete RTR and no assembly required as advertised, underframes and bogies are available separately for those who want to do old-school kitbashing.

Ummm - NOPE - the model are complete RTR, Eureka have also imported the underframes for those that want to use them for other purposes but they were not available at the time I picked up my models, I think [color=#333333][size=4][font=Roboto, wf_SegoeUI, ]c3526blue[/font][/size][/color] / John's post should be read as that he has received the RTR models, but he had not received as yet the underframe only items.

- I hope that clarifies the situation.

Alex has hit the nail on the head precisely.  Good aim mate!  Spare underframes and bogies were ordered at the same time, but not supplied with the RTR models.

A good example of why you should not say to your mate with a hammer "When I nod my head, hit it".

Happy comprehending,

Secret Agent hits the point again.

What drugs is he on, I need to know so I can avoid them.

Lets see how long it takes him to spit the dummy again on his website for immature modellers Sic!!

Is there anybody he likes anymore? His rants really are becoming annoying.

Dear David,
Just went to the Eureka website.
You could not find any mention , but I found this text quite easily.

Shipping details will be available shortly but it is likely that the 12 wheelers will arrive around the second week of January.


The 12 wheelers will be available in individual packs. Price is $150 per carriage plus $15 postage per order.

Also available is a number of the popular 3 axle bogies and a number of spare chassis complete with bogies and KD couplers.    

Our last run of 3 axle bogies were released with the NCR sets and sold out almost immediately.

Price for the bogies is $25 per pair and the chassis is $40 per complete chassis.

Fairly obvious to me.

All right I read it wrong, but the person who put it up could have described in more detail that he had got the models and the underframes that he had ordered separaely would come later. I only had a quick look as I was tired and sleepy a bit so it did not click the way it was meant to click. I am sure we have all done similar at some time.

And David, are you still on a bender?
You repeated the slanderous comments on your own website, and for several days you have refused to admit you were wrong.

You really should think more before you hand out false criticisms and when you sober up in the morning you should start removing your ridiculous comments.

Recently you criticised Eureka for "multiple problems" despite failing to comprehend that A LARGE SHORT CIRCUIT may have caused the problem on an eight year old loco.
That was Ron's fault !!!!!

Now you have shot off about part delivery of models from the same company. So another withdrawal or apology would be inline.
And you have repeated and expanded on these comments on the website you own and administrate on.

You know the one for " mature" modellers

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

If you are so tired and out of line maybe you should take a BEX and have a good lie down instead of denigrating others so often.

I think that everyone should take a Bex and lie down.  I know I will.
