Procast

Post by x568wcn » Mon Apr 17, 2006 8:58 pm

Not models, and not me selling.buying so posted it here.

Has anyone come accross Procast before? they were at the York Show this weekend, with a small stall, with a selection of their wares on it for sale.
They do/can do just about anything, and they are cast brass and full size and the prices reflect this!.
One thing they had on the stall which caught my attention was a Silver Fox for £135

there was also one of those ones with the animal over the top (are these Hunts) which looked very nice.

anyway their site is at http://www.procast-uk.com/home.html

and if you get in to a section, and want to go to another section, use your browsers back button, or you get a error page!

If it was a fox, yes. If it was a ring-tailed lemur, no. :wink:

Can't remember what name it was! :oops:

it looked Foxy

and the Silver Fox is the opposite to the singular one in the NRM!

This is a D49/2 "Hunt" replica nameplate from Newton Replicas:

According to the British Transport Film "The Elizabethan", Gresley said he designed the A4s to have "the speed of a Greyhound and the strength of a Wild Boar". A good job he didn't choose the Woolly Mammoth and African Rhinoceros, or he'd have needed nameplates the size of a hang-glider.
