Utterly stunning

These are magnificent models. With such a long service life, you’ve got quite a wide range of locos to choose from and still be representative. As with most DRS subjects, you’ve also got a great opportunity to refine your double-heading or top and tailing too. That said, just coupled to a DRS 66 looks spectacular! They are reassuringly heavy, but this only adds to the way that they move; just trundling around seems better than main line speed. The detail as many have observed is outstanding; I could stare at these for hours. I guess lots of us are yearning for a pair of escort coaches now…….

KUA Nuclear Flask Wagons

Very high Quality model very pleased better value than the larger model company’s Products Hornsby and Bachman?
Waiting for the Deltic which I expect will be brilliant, if these wagons are anything to go by I hope you continue to produce these high quality products.

Outstanding

At the risk of coping everybody else. The product is amazing quality. Weight, colour, running and detail. It's got it all and some. Cant wait for the rest of the products I've ordered

Amazing detail

As I'm still in the process of designing my next layout, I've only taken them out of the box to have a quick look.

Postage to Australia was very fast (surprisingly so), external packaging was excellent, and the actual box containing the wagons is fantastic! The only minor issue is that the two plastic halves of the inner shell took a bit of force to separate, bending somewhat in the process. This does not appears to have affected the wagons at all.

The wagons themselves are very heavy - very heavy indeed, but due to their free-running wheels should not be an issue for a reasonable loco to haul around.

The detail is amazing, from the underframe, decals, bogies, safety railings - these would be a great addition to any layout.

Simply stunning!

From the point of arrival, you can’t help be impressed by the attention to detail on the packaging. It’s very much like opening an expensive Apple product. I very much like the leaflet inside which explains various details of the KUA’s and then, once the top cover is removed, the wagons are simply stunning.

Firstly, the shear weight of each wagon is incredible. Once on the track, you can’t but help be impressed by the stunning levels of detail across every aspect of decoration. The wagons are very smooth running with very little effort required to overcome inertia and the double bogies at each end are incredibly well designed and executed.

Well worth the money and very pleased I managed to purchase a set before selling out!!

Honestly

They look absolutely fantastic. Not been out of the box. Still converting the attic space after moving house two years ago. I will use Accurascale again because of the standard
In the detail plus top of the Range packaging. Brian.

Worth every penny

These are amazing! From the speedy delivery to the presentation of the box, to the wagons themselves. They are substantial and very well detailed and with just the two you have a complete authentic train. Great work Accurascale.
