No doubt, based on the FB photo's that the BCH & BWH models show a very decent upgrade to the originals, but then again that would not have been hard to achieve. I guess the problem is that if there is anything found wrong with these models, then one would expect that the owners of PL would come out all guns blazing, with put down of the people, also with the response as they did with the 48cl, that being They do not realise how much research etc etc etc. was put into these models.
While they look not too bad in the photo's, there are aspects of them that I think have been poorly modelled, some may think nit picking but with the way things are & expectations these days I would have though that the factory could have done better if the research & photographic evidence was there for them to work with, of course the thing is what was the base of their research, eg was it again the preserved representation at Thirlmere of the BCH & a roof covering to finish off for a BWH?
From what I can see the end support posts, along with the pipe work, & what should be a triple valve casting is terrible, with no definition & certainly just blocks of plastic rather than trying to even replicate the angle supports on the real wagons. The brake piston lever rod is also the same, no grade control valve, yet the wagons are decaled as having them. The blob on the brake gear end, may be supposed to represent the Davies Metcalf Relay valve equipment which certainly were not on the older BCH/BWH, except perhaps a couple of them prior to receiving RB bogies.
The other aspect with them is that the pipe work is also course, as is the ladder. Seems to me, like many other models from the new era of PL models that they go so far with what they are doing, & likely succumb at the end to get them out quick meaning they fail with the finishing touches.
The big question will be with them is what price will they lump on them?
Sorry, but while I would not have minded a pack of them, I will wait & hope that TOR will do another run of their models.
