Bachmann Thompsons

Post by Bunkerbarge » Thu Apr 18, 2019 10:38 pm

Just a question for all you knowledgeable modellers regarding the new range of Bachmann Thompson LNER Teak coaches, for example 34-460. Do they represent genuine teak built coaches or are they models of the painted scumbled finish?

Thanks in advance.

All post-war 'Thompson' designs were steel panels on teak frames. The exterior finish was painted, however it is described.
