I am extremely pleased to advise that the ’00’ gauge Beattie Well Tank commissioned by the Kernow Model Centre and manufactured by Dapol has come first place within the 4mm Steam locomotive category in the Annual Model of Year award 2011. The annual poll is organised jointly between RMweb, Model Rail Magazine and Model Railways Express online magazine and asks modellers to vote across a number of categories. Congratulations to the Kernow Model Centre for making the inspired and brave step to commission the model and for Dapol for manufacturing the model so nicely.
As readers of this blog will be aware I have been providing assistance to the Kernow Model Centre with this model and also their future Southern related models so I am extremely pleased (without any bias of course) that the hard work and effort that has gone in to this model by all parties has been recognised in this way.
The full list of results can be found in the newly published ‘Spring’ issue of Model Rail Magazine and also here on RMweb and on Model Railway Express online magazine in due course.
