Comments

Incorrect self-checking number! It seems that Makette is a specialist in this kind of error. Wheels ø 10.4 mm (should be 11.5), axles 24.4 mm long between ends. Huge suspension springs, guardrails, and ladders. The width at the steps (42 mm) is more than 3.6 m real, while the UIC gauge is limited to 3.15 m! Moulding joints visible on buffer heads; on the buffer bodies, these joints were roughly ground. There is a place for a towing hook, but no coupling provided.

The NEM box has too much clearance, Roco couplings dangle and coupling is difficult.

Globally, this wagon is treated in a very rough way, and that’s too bad.

See the Loco-Revue Forum.
