@GDracer16 - I'll probably add the cameras to most of them eventually. I've added them to the Stars and Castles now.

@Some random dude - Yeah I know what you mean about the text & logos when coloured. Ideally they would not be shown for the recoloured version, but that's not possible. Currently there's one small texture map for recolouring all the versions. Whereas to them properly detailed would need 6 large images instead. So it doesn't really justifiy it for what I view as just a bonus feature.

Great job on the models, but could you please do something about the GWR text changing color with the engine? No offence but the text become a lighter shade of color than the engine just doesnt look right. But still, excelent job on modeling the engine

Thanks for the positive comments guys.
@SteveM4 - I don't about that, you've probably released 10 in the time I took on this. ;-)
