For various reasons, I am thinking of giving up on whitemetal castings for working signal lamps and have made a start with GWR ones. They feature fitted warm white smd leds. If anybody is interested, a photo etc are on my website. They are cast from polyurethane resin.
Not being able to get any MSE ones for some time, I took a look at some photos of the prototype and decided I could do better anyway. I realise of course that such an item is a very small part of the MSE empire and as such can't warrant any re-tooling.
So hope you don't mind me mentioning this but thought it might be of interest.
