Hattons class 66

I know the class 66 is not everybody's cup of tea, but they are a big part of the modern railway sense.
When Hattons announced the were going to do one and we're hailing it as a big leap forward on the bachy and Hornby offerings I thought I'd get one ordered. It came just before Christmas but only just had time to have a proper play.
Firstly it weighs a lot more the the bachmann one ( I've got 4 of these). The next thing I noticed was 2 of the axle boxes that they made a big fuss over (they rotate) had come off, that tuck some time to get them back on ( not sure they will stay on tbh). It's a nice smooth runner when you get it on the track, even at very low speeds.
Is it a big leap forward? The lights are better, bachy in general are just a bit too bright in my opinion. It's very well detailed model but I'm not sure it's a game changer. I would be interested in hearing what you guys think, ( hopefully the photos will come out ok, first time posting on here and I'm not that good with I.T)
