Kernow Model Rail Centre Exclusive Limited Edition News - OO Gauge

UPDATE - D600 Warship - OO Gauge

Wow - what a response from all you lovely people! Thanks for all of the help we have received in our preparation of the D600 livery artwork!

We have been staggered by the number of previously unpublished images we have received. Unfortunately we are unable to share any of these images as either the Copyright is in doubt or the owner does not allow publication.

We also have the paint diagrams which all clearly say black. Many of the images we were sent show the battery boxes covered in filth and grime, or were black and white.

We have ten images in colour which are very clear, all of which look green. We understand there is an argument that it is somehow reflecting the colour from the body above, but we don't think the angles work for this. It is set back from the body above so there is no way for the colour to reflect onto it. We also think that at least part of the bogies would reflect some of the green if this was the explanation. The chances of 10 images all somehow showing as green when it was actually black is too remote so we have decided to go with green. This is not a snap decision, we have looked over and over again before reaching this conclusion.

We have no evidence that the BR Blue version is anything other than black.

The factory will very shortly start work on the livery samples based on our information to date and we look forward to showing these as soon as we receive them!
