Didn't some hook gear stock receive Cammell buffers with packing pieces between the vehicle & the buffer to lengthen them? Presumably prior to autos being fitted when the packing would've been removed. AMRM did a piece on NSWGR buffers some time ago.
Received a pack of TE's for a family member who is moving house. It appears there was just too much awesome for one box, and several of the components were broken upon opening. This is probably due to a much firmer foam packaging than I've seen from other manufacturer's recently.
This is one of the better ones in the pack:
The tank's main gun is visible at the back of the package. On others the tank tracks had snapped, some paint was chipped and the plates on the side covering the tank tracks were loose. Most of the broken parts looks like they will re-attach quite easily and with minimal touching up required. It they were mine I wouldn't be particularly fussed.
Aside from that, from what I can see without taking it out of the box, the level of detail on the TE's is impressive. I don't want a pack myself, but I'm glad to have seen these up close.
Perhaps slightly OT, but does anyone know what class are the 4 wagons used as spacers in the special consist on this page- http://www.sdsmodels.com.au/teres.htm that are incorrectly stated to be TEs?
