Hornby’s Dublo ‘Merchant Navy’ samples sail in
Hornby has received production samples of its newly-tooled OO’ gauge Hornby Dublo Bulleid air-smoothed ‘Merchant Navy’ 4-6-2 for evaluation.
Announced earlier this year, the new Hornby Dublo inspired range of models launched in 2020 was bolstered with the announcement of these distinctive Bulleid 'Pacifics’.
Two models are planned as 35016 Elders Fyffes in BR malachite green (Cat No. R3970) and 35011 General Steam Navigation in BR lined green with early crests (R3971). Each will feature an all-new diecast metal locomotive body with newly-tooled plastic detail parts, together with the existing high-fidelity chassis and plastic bodied tender from the main range models.
Supplied in specially designed Hornby Dublo branded boxes, they are priced at £264.99 each. Delivery is expected later this Summer.
