So sorry - Didn't relise that my Lovely little reveiw when I said that "It still works & it is a great runner - It pulls well :) Not a bad word about it!!!" didn't relise it would cause so much conflict - I've never had any problems with it & what with all this mazak rot case never heard about that before not had any trouble with it - why are you having a go at me for??? What have I done to you??? Both models look the same to me - I don't understand what I have done wrong???
I didn't intend on hurting your feelings or heavily criticize your review. I honestly didn't even check the name of the reviewer and found out only when forum members pointed it out.
A review is meant to tell others about your opinion on a specific product, in this case the product in question is Hornby's top of the line Class 31. Hornby's RailRoad spec Class 31 is another model altogether and so is the older Airfix Class 31. Whilst your review might be positive, it's not related to the product in question and you giving it a 3-star rating wasn't helpful either, the higher spec Class 31 deserves a 4.5/5-star rating.
If you were into model cars and had an option to buy either an Oxford Mini or a Corgi Mini, you'll be looking for reviews for those specific items. If I gave you a review for a Matchbox Mini, it won't be helpful to you. Same principle applies here.
You general thoughts on an Airfix Class 31 can be put up elsewhere like YouTube, RMweb etc.
