Comments

Era IVb.

Ref. HJ6062 and 6063: ø 10.4 wheels, 24.4 mm long axles. Should be ø 11.5. Replaceable by Piko wheels, because the buffer height is a little too small.

Ref. HJ6095 and 6096: ø 11.2 wheels, pretty close to the actual diameter, so don’t need replacement. One of the wagons had a dismantled drawbar. The new boxes are of hard plastic, which seems to be the general trend (REE, Roco, etc.). They have the advantage of being smaller.

The guardrails are fine, the ladders rather coarse. There are moulding burrs on the chassis, the underside of which is not very detailed (and without inserted parts). The brake shoes have strange holders, forming a single piece per axle.

There is a flat-head buffer and a domed-head buffer. I don’t think that’s the case in reality. The head reinforcement ribs are present.

This is the reissue of a Lima model which includes other variants (without gangway, with other tanks…): set 302812, two EVS wagons; 302813, Omya wagon.

See the LR Presse forum (1) or LR Presse forum (2).

Modifications

  • Ref. HJ6062 and 6063: ø 11.5 wheels
  • Ref. HJ6095 and 6096: buffers, wheels, and brake shoes painted.
  • Starting weathering on HJ6095 with Tamiya set (snow colour to mimic the cement pouring).
