Tim,

If you can get to one of the many model shows that Action attend you can hear his sound simulators working at first hand.

He should be at Epic (Ellesmere) in March all being well as he's normally there.

There is also of course the Robbe unit and the "Sounds Amazing" range by JJC.

Thanks for your replies guys...
Ellsmere a little to far for me to travel at the moment, so i am going to order one from "action" as a kit and make it myself i like electronics so I'm going to give it a bash. ;D

spoke to action about getting one, and they said
"to be fare it really isnt worth putting one in as you wouldnt hear it in that size model, and you wouldnt really hear it on real one"
honest chap really.
