Graham Farish Class 31 Skinhead 31121 with Discs. Modified & Sprayed by Mercig. Professionally built by Mercig, weathered to a faded BR blue as seen in mid 1970s on the WR.Model includes detailed buffer beam, completely revised nose ends to represent a skinhead version with discs, a plated over central door panel (modification done in 1977) and handrails added. There are even windscreen wipers painted on and the wiped areas appear clear. Check out Flickr and other photo libraries to see how the model reflects all the real life characteristics of this individual loco. This is a modified Farish locomotive rather than a resin moulding on the Farish chassis, and so it retains the quality of the original moulding. This model was made in 2009 and is therefore not based on the current DCC ready version, but has the earlier.
Standard Chinese production Graham Farish split chassis which was used from about 2005 until the new DCC ready model was produced. It has the modern standard low profile wheels with darkened rims. Mercig has even fitted a masking plate to cover the hole where the coupling would have been. The model is a nice quiet runner, and has been correctly run in.
It has excellent slow speed capability in both directions and it remains a smooth runner with no wobble at all speeds. I think Mercig models are rather special. This model has been properly cared for by me, as its original owner, and this shows in its running as well as its appearance. The first three photos were taken by Mercig of this actual model and were posted on the Mercig website in 2009.The other photos are my photos taken just now, and are obviously not as professional, but are very good closeups.
