RWS Style - Henry

I for one am most upset that Henry didn't get the update like the rest of the Steam Team did in Series 23. So I started adding rivets to Henry but then I ended up giving him a whole Green-5 conversion. Let me know what you think.

Do you want me to do Edward as well? And should I give just him extra rivets or do a full FR K2 Class "Larger Seagull" makeover?

I think you should make Duck a much darker green like in real life.

Henry, after going to Crewe for “further work”

This looks stunning, and does justice to Henry.

And I, too, am aggravated that Henry AND Edward weren't given updates to their CGI models. I guess since Nia and Rebecca took their places, NWR's No.2 and No.3 are just an afterthought to Mattel.

Henry looks magnificent this way, I wish the TV series made him look like this since season 1.

This is how Mattel should've made Henry, it looks awesome, The-ARC-Minister!

I would LOVE if they would at least fix his windows after all these years and years and years.

I see you gave him the fish train headcode - I'd like to see that on Arthur if he ever returned.

Since Series 17 when they gave the Engines lamps, I always thought they should give Gordon the Express Headcode and Henry the goods (fish) train headcode.

Then they gave Gordon the correct headcode in Series 23 but not Henry :cries:

This looks amazing! Henry NEEDS this treatment!

Henry is my favourite character but those wheel archs on him and the small firebox has always annoyed me, hence this update

Not to mention that massive gap under his cab.

I'd love to get this as a proper update for Henry (for all of them if they can get a more RWS style look to them, minus Thomas because I doubt they're gonna straighten out his running plate). Also good to see you're still here :)

Yes I’m still here. Just my interest in the current series is quite low. But I will always love the RWS characters and the classic series and Series 17-21

If you do Edward, He Should get the full FR K2 Class Makeover Treatment

I’m working on Edward right now. He’s not finished but he is looking good.

I was more disappointed than upset. But I think Mattel should really do this update for Henry, it's a great concept edit.

Mattel is really messing with the fans.

Because they didn't give Henry and Edward updates? Look, I know what I said gives me the impression Mattel should really do this. I did not say this because I am on the Mattel hate bandwagon like an idiot, I said that because I was interested and impressed.
