    Always wanted some of those impressive cars, so here we go. This time it's a hybrid model: all etched metal parts apart from the Dreadnought ends, which are 3D printed to better show the prototypical shapes. This car series is not for sale yet, I need to do some re-design, most notable the coupler attachment, body-mount is only suitable from R300+ and long shank trucks are not available or there is no willingness to make them available to the public. So stay tuned...

    Absolutely one of my favorites! A long shank coupler would be the solution. Got to be a way to modify one. Such a great piece!

    Are you sure that's not an N scale model, because it looks fantastic! Wow! Great work!

    Amazing! The door details are really clean. Everything looks highly accurate.
