DJ Models has released images of its crowd-funded ‘OO’ gauge Class 71 in production in China.
The Class 71 project was launched in 2015 and is set to become the first crowd-funded ready-to-run locomotive to be produced for the British market. It is to feature directional lighting, a 21-pin DCC decoder socket, cab interior detail, space for installation of a speaker and more in its specification. It will also become the second ready-to-run model of the Class 71 following on from Hornby’s 2016 released version for ‘OO’.
On release the Class 71 will be available in original BR green, BR green with small yellow warning panels, BR green with full yellow ends and BR blue. The price per model is £139.95 and further limited editions are planned by Hatton’s and Kernow Model Rail Centre.
