D9013 Deltic

What a machine, it's stunning, the sound file and functions are spot on

Class 55 The Black Watch

My first impression is that the Deltic class 55 The Black Watch is good value when compared to other models on the market. The finely detailed model itself is of a very high quality. Sound is excellent as is it's overall running performance. Keep up the good work guys!

Spotted this one on the website by accident while looking for something else - absolutely delighted as I thought they'd sold out long since. One end coupling and pocket missing but otherwise perfect - Simon is sorting the spares for me. With F5 activated and tweaks to CVs 2, 51, 52 and 116 this one runs beautifully from an almost imperceptable crawl onwards. Simply spendid.

Deltics appeal to many people far and wide for numerous reasons, notably for their distinctive sound and presence, but also because of the names that they carried and the famous 'Named Trains' that they hauled up and down the East Coast Mainline.

Years ago I purchased 'The Black Watch' in BR Blue livery from another manufacturer and it was one of the first Deltic models that I'd ever owned. It was a reasonably accurate model for the time and certainly saw a lot of use on my layout. As great as BR Blue livery is though, I've always felt that the earlier two-tone green paint scheme suited the machines far better (a tad controversial I know!).

When Accurascale announced that they were going to be producing 'The Black Watch' in its earlier D9013 two-tone green guise, then it was a no-brainer as far as I was concerned - It was one of those 'must have' models, and boy oh boy it was most definitely worth the wait, or should I say 'weight'! If you want an example of how to produce a really fine model, then look no further than D9013.

It's a model brimming with detail and one which shouts 'look at me'. I find myself noticing something different every time I look at it. The attention to detail is nothing short of extraordinary and is testament to the time, dedication and effort that the Accurascale team have put into these superb models. If there was ever an exhibition of model railway locomotives through the years, then this Deltic deserves pride of place as a museum piece.

If and when there's a second production run, I can see further examples joining the fleet!

This is my 4th of these fantastic locos and the 3rd purchased directly from Accurascale. With each one I add to my collection I'm still amazed at the wealth of detail and number of intricate detailing parts fitted to these models, this one having arrived with all the "brake chains" intact and only 1 corner step having come adrift while in transit. From the offset it has run exceptionally smoothly and there is no distortion from the speakers at any speed. To be fair I've only had a speaker issue with 1 Deltic and that was rectified with a very small amount of "Black tack" under the speaker which stopped it vibrating. Once run in the crew will be installed along with the detailing kit and "she" will be put to work.
I look forward to the day that Accurascale announce a second run of Deltics allowing us all the opportunity to purchase more variants of these models in their various liveries.

Highly recommend to everyone

Black Watch Review

Very happy with the loco, no missing or loose parts. Looks like a Deltic should, runs very smoothly and can pull a decent load. Will buy more when they are released again in the future.
Only issue is the flimsy coupling mount, kept falling off when pulling a load after fitting a Kadee into the NEM pocket, fixed with a little glue

Beautiful looking model

The model looks great, runs smoothly and quietly. The detailing is beautiful a little bit on the fragile side as the model did arrive with some small parts knocked off but fixable.

A Truly Beautiful Model - Almost 10/10

This model from Accurascale will hopefully send out a big wake up call to all competitors. Highlights for me were the excellent packaging and the fact that it ran beautifully first time with the sound settings spot on. Paintwork is also top-notch. The only negative I have is that the crew are not factory installed which should be standard. Charge me extra, but don't make me muck on trying to take the body shell off and risk damage and especially with the way the chains are attached between the body and bogies.

Like all my Accurascale Deltics, an amazing model, incredible detail and great fun to operate.
