A very large and highly detailed kit of the Japan railways DD51 centre-cab 2,200bhp general purpose diesel hydraulic locomotives used throughout Japan. This kit is designed to build a model of a locomotive in passenger service liveried for the Hokutosei Limited Express.
The BR80 locomotives were able to pull a 900 ton train at 45 km / h. During WWII they were mostly used for shunting and transport of goods and soldiers in short distances within Germany.
The kit includes over 900 plastic parts including a highly detailed chassis and drive assembly and accurately reproduced boiler. Full instructions are included with the kit.
Adhesive and paints are required
A detailed kit to build a model of the German Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR) WW2 design Kriegslok Br52 2-10-0. These War Locomotives were a simplifiied version of the previous DR 2-10-0 design, making the Br52 quicker and simplier to build, needing less expensive materials and less skilled labour. The Br52 was widely used across Europe after the war, many surviving until replaced by diesel locomotives.
Painting instructions are included for wartime and post-war DB paint schemes.
Glue and paints are required to assemble and complete the model (not included).
The BR50 was developed from 1937 onwards as a powerful goods hauling standard locomotive for use on branch lines. With a total of 3164 locomotives, produced by almost all German builders between 1938 and 1945, the BR50 was one of the most widely used steam locomotive classes in Germany. Due to the war, the last series was technically simplified and designated BR50 UK (Umbau Kriegslokomotive). The BR50 was developed to replace obsolete steam locomotives on branch lines. At 16t, the low axle load of the BR50 made it suitable for universal use.
