OO Gauge Peak models
Bachmann have yet to produce an accurate OO gauge model of a Class 45/1. The 45/1s that have been produced were let down by the presence of steam heat details on the roof and plated over body side steps. All these features, correct for a 45/0, were removed when the locos were ETH fitted. It is only recently that models have been offered with flush front ends and marker lights, but again these are 45/0s. Heljan are releasing a Class 45/1 model with and without high intensity headlights later in 2021. However, with a few evenings work, it is possible to convert a standard Bachmann model into a fairly accurate representation of a 45/1. Click here to read an article on how to do it.
