I'd argue VLocities are no more of a niche than NSW 46 or 86 class electrics, which are being produced. Not to mention Auscision are no stranger to the solely Vic BG market, with the A class, N class, N sets, GYs, U vans, KMQ flats, T vans and E cars.

Given the variety of 4 wheelers they're bringing out, maybe they'll complement them with Z vans?

Ok, saying that you have a good point...  EmbarassedRazz

And so the cycle would continue over in the GY's in HO Scale rtr/kit etc. thread if they did Z vans...  Twisted Evil

I don't think it will be a guards van cause you only have like max 2 per train depending on era.

Seeing as how the latest PGH/MHG's from Trainorama only got in a couple of days ago, and four packs are already sold out with others close to selling out, Brake Vans might be a bigger seller than you think!

ZLPs took a while though to sell.

That's cause they are ugly!

Could be a state thing possibly, but the brake vans seem to sell out up here and then go for big bucks on Ebay.

Maybe NSW modellers have more rolling stock  ConfusedLaughing

All I can say is "YUMMY". The sample they have in the cabinet looks really good. I will be ordering at least one of these.

Hmm, looking at that photo, there appears to be quite a few corrections that need to be done to it.

The front cowcatcher is very odd. Also, I hope the small opening windows are not simply part of the clear window moulding. The panels should extend over the sides of the bogies with only a small access hatch adjacent to the axle boxes.

Was wondering how long it would take for someone to start picking up flaws in the pre production sample........  Rolling Eyes

Oh come on!  Rolling EyesRolling EyesRolling Eyes  That's what pre-production models are for! Rolling Eyes
Surely the critic is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.  If what is perceived as an error or ommission is not mentioned, and the item goes into production, there'll be critiscism for not noticing errors at the pre-production stage.  On the other hand, any mentions of errors or ommissions are seen as unfair critiscism: "it's a pre-production model after all".  Give James some credit and we'll all wait to hear what Auscision or their spokesperson have to say in reply.  
Now where's the emoticon for 'running for cover'?

Wow James!  You really have a good eye and thanks for letting us know the anomalies of the model/s.  I for one appreciate it.

True, damned if you do, damned if you dont - and the point exectly, it is only a pre production model.
