For those of you who missed some of Jens' Zettzeit Specials, here is a good chance to grab some of the last:
And here the boxes (the difference is brown vs green paint)
These locos are made of brass, are they not? Unlike the scandinavian locos FR has currently for sale. I do not want to sound gross, but the price diffence between brass and plastic is surprisingly small.
I guess this makes the A3/5 and A 3/6 very good bargains
This weeks progress. I did a little more experimenting with paints colors and washes. I also started installing windows, window shades, and curtains. Custom cutting each one to fit and gluing them in one at a time is time consuming But after seeing the side by side comparison of the ones with it to the ones with out i think the added detail is worth the effort.
Very nice work! Congratulations! The time was well invested..... Best, Sven
Just as a reminder - the lot is sold out at Harald Freudenreich. There are a few kits still sitting with Sascha Braun. E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Web-Page: zcustomizer.de/about%20us/index.html
A few months ago I wrote: I just learned that there will be a new release of Harald Freudenreich's Boxcabs. He wrote: "In Kürze wird die nächste Auflage des US Boxcab Diesel fertig. Die Modelle haben nun ein komplett neues Fahrwerk mit besserer Untersetzung, Platz für Dekoder und eine "Ami-freundliche" Klauenkupplung. Folgende Versionen sind vorgesehen: Lackawanna #3001, Reading Company #98, ERIE #20. Es sind nur ganz wenige Exemplare. Preis pro Stück Euro 399 plus Mehrwertsteuer, versandkostenfrei."
Everything from Freundenreich Feinwerktechnik (also know as just... FR) is considered rare. Production is very limited on all items. U.S. roads are even more scarce. FR hasn't produced U.S. roads for many years. Unfortunately, FR does not keep a history of its releases on its website. fr-model.eshop.t-online.de
I could pick up some old Dealer Stock here in Switzerland and Germany. For details look at pictures below. If you are interested in buying some of the cars please let me know. Best, Sven
