Australian Modeller
We are proud to finally announce that our retail store "Australian Modeller" is finally finished and will open on Saturday the 28th of November. There will be specials and plenty of sold out/unavailable models from various manufactures available at the Grand Opening, along with a free sausage sizzle and cold drinks around midday. Our goal is to provide Australian outline model railway products to all of our customers at affordable prices. If we don't have an "Australian outline" item in stock, let us know and we will have it in stock the next time you visit. We have also been working on an online store which will launch early in 2016 and will provide all of the products we sell in store to our customers by mail order.  We look forward to seeing everyone that can make it on the day. Australian Modeller Unit 68/45 Powers Road, Seven Hills NSW 2147. Visit our retailers page for further information.

L Class Update
Ok so we have decided to Airfreight the L Class production models so that we have enough time to send all pre-orders out before the Sandown show in March. Unfortunately our factory didn't have enough time to finish all 11 numbers before CNY holidays so we are only getting L-1 to L-9. If you ordered L-10 & 11 we will post them out in March when they arrive. The airfreight is expected next week so get your orders in quick! Please note L-1 has now sold out.

The Ultimate NR!
Auscision has been working on a sound equipped HO Scale NR that will operate on both DC & DCC. The sound files have been recorded and developed here in Australia from an actual NR Class Locomotive and will be factory fitted to each model. Our NR will be the most detailed NR available on the market and will feature over 300 separately applied parts. It is being produced in conjunction with our C44aci locomotive and will be available in 13 different liveries and have all of the same features as our C44aci. Further details and order forms will be available soon.

Project Updates
We have not long returned from our trip to China after visiting our factories and have both good and bad news on projects.

Firstly we would like to say thanks to all of our regular supportive customers that wait patiently for our projects to be delivered. As most of you know we donít deliberately delay models or hold them back. If a project ends up being quicker to make than another we will deliver it early as we would prefer our customer to have their model rather than us keep it in our warehouse.

Itís going to be a big year at Auscision. We have a locomotive being delivered every single month from January to October.

We have tried our best to support our customers with low prices but that day is coming to an end. With prices rising in China each year and now the Aussie dollar dropping fast prices are going to have to rise. Every 10c the AUD drops against the USD our costs automatically go up by 10%. So our models should cost 30% more as the dollar is now down to $0.77c. Please take advantage of our pre-paid prices as they wonít be this low ever again.

And once again we have to mention how important it is to pre-order your models early. We place our order with the factory after receiving orders from our customers so that we have an idea on what quantity we need to order. In the past some of our customers have missed out as they decided to order closer to delivery after we had placed our order with the factory. Just look at the Candy 86 class. We ordered plenty of these but were bombarded with orders just before the model was delivered. So our advice is to lock your order in early and you are guaranteed to get what you want.

Auscision Shop Unfortunately we havenít had much time to work on the final finishing touches with the shop. With the 45 class just arriving we will be quite busy posting these out and once we are done the 46 will arrive. Hopefully the shop will be open in the coming months.

Below you will find an up to date anticipated delivery and some progress information on all of our projects that are currently in development. 

45 Class Locomotive The 45 Class have just arrived. We will spend this week packing all orders before we send them out in one big load. There are 2 new unannounced Indian Red versions with L7 logos on the cab side. These are available now from our website.

46 Class Locomotive The 46 class is in production and will leave China on the 30th of January 2015. We saw the factory pad printing each body while we were there. A few numbers are about to sell out and we will update our website with further information on this soon.

L Class Locomotive Victorian L Class electric is also in the painting and printing stage at the factory with the shipment leaving China before CNY holidays in February. We are trying our best to have the models available for the Sandown 2015 show.

P Class Locomotive The BRM P Class is currently in the injecting stage and will be shipped out of China on the 30th of March.

421 Class Locomotive Our factory is pulling their hair out with the 421! Itís such a complex locomotive with nearly every loco number having a different livery or something different with the decoration causing the factory to spend more time painting each body with lots of masks required. Because of this delivery for the 421 will now be May 2015.

X Class Locomotive We viewed the painted samples for the X Class while at the factory and they looked great. Some photos of the samples have just been posted on our website. Delivery for the X Class will be around June/July 2015.

NLDF Newsprint Van Although we havenít started taking order yet we have just received the painted samples. Delivery is expected in July 2015. Order forms will be available soon.

43 Class Locomotive Our 43 Class locomotive will be available in August 2015. Painted samples have also just turned up and can be viewed on the 43 class page.

T Class (Cut away valance) BRMs next batch of T Class will arrive later in 2015. Order forms should be out soon and painted samples are expected soon.

XPT Passenger Train Ok so this has been a long and huge project for us but itís going to be worth the wait. We were playing around with orange window colours while at the factory trying to get a colour that matched the prototype. We expect to see painted samples around March with delivery unfortunately not until August 2015. We have tried our best to pull this project in but itís so huge that it needs several months just to assemble all of the models on top of injecting the parts, painting and printing them.

C44ACI Locomotive Unfortunately this project has been pushed back a little further until 3rd quarter 2015. We added a few new special liveries to the production schedule which pushed the project back.  We should have painted samples early in 2015.

GT46C-Ace Locomotives Due to a few issues with our PCB design for the GT46C-Ace this model has been delayed until 2nd quarter 2015. We felt that it was best for us to deliver a perfect product rather than deliver something we were not happy with. Our newly designed PCB in the GT46C-Ace is friendlier for DCC users and will have flashing ditch lights as per the prototype.

Tangara Suburban Train Another project that took more time than anticipated is the Tangara. We have re-tooled many of the parts after we had to re-engineer the way each car is coupled together. Our original design looked good on the CAD drawings but didnít work once we tested the samples. So we have spent the last 12 months re-tooling these parts and have all promised ourselves we will never attempt to make a model that looks as simple as the Tangara but in reality is one of the most complex models ever. Another problem with the Tangara is that the bogies are hidden under the side skirting and itís almost impossible to put each car on the track as you cannot align the bogies with the rails. This is why we designed the railers so that each car can be slid down the railer onto the track with ease. We viewed the modified tooling while in China and should hopefully receive the painted samples in the coming months. Production is now expected to arrive in May.

Southern Aurora Passenger Train The southern Aurora is progressing smoothly and is still expected to arrive in 2015. We will post samples on our website soon.

48/830 Class Locomotives We should have tooling samples soon. Our factory is pushing this project through quite fast and delivery is still expected in 2015. Please remember to take advantage of our super low pre-order price of only $220.00 as this price wonít last forever and this special price is only for Auscision customers.

O Scale 45 Class Late last year we received samples of our O Scale 45 Class locomotive and have been making corrections with the factory. We expect the production of to arrive around May/June 2015. Order forms will be available soon.

We have about 11 new projects yet to announce. Some we have tooled and are ready for production and some are being tooled at the moment. Once we get a few of our current projects out of the way we will make some new announcements.
