Model Rail (UK) - - Opening the box -

There’s a new name join­ing the ranks of 4mm:1ft ready‑to‑run man­u­fac­tur­ers – and you can have a say in what it pro­duces. Accurascal­e is the Bri­tish‑ out­line arm of Irish Rail­way Mod­els, whose CIÉ ce­ment bub­bles are re­viewed in this is­sue (p102). Accurascal­e’s first model is cur­rently in tool­ing and will be un­veiled in early 2018. Two more mod­els will be an­nounced next year. This will be the first year of a five‑ year pro­gramme of new re­leases. How­ever, ad­di­tional ca­pac­ity in its Chi­nese fac­tory means that Accurascal­e can un­der­take ex­tra projects be­yond its five‑year plan. There­fore, it wishes to hear from Bri­tish mod­ellers who wish to lobby a case for which lo­co­mo­tive, unit or rolling stock it would like to see pro­duced. You can make your case at www.sur­vey­mon­key. com/r/ac­curscale-sur­vey Accurascal­e’s mod­els are pro­duced in ‘OO’ gauge but have been de­signed to al­low sim­ple con­ver­sion to ‘EM’ and ‘P4’. It will also con­sider mod­els in other gauges too, depending on de­mand. For more in­for­ma­tion, see www. accurascal­ or www.face­ ac­curas­caleuk
