  1. Kato - New Releases

    Considering that the TOMIX version does not come with TN couplers between cars (only at the cabin cars), it's an easy choice for me...
  2. What did you order or the post deliver?

    AFAIK, Micro Ace do not sell replacement parts. I asked MTP, and Mr. Takayama confirmed it. I hope the seller still has one! What exactly is missing?
  3. It looks so cool! Great job! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I haven't posted what I received recently because I am busy installing interior lighting in my trains before I do. But since the train I got today is already with interior lighting AND TN couplers and is in perfect working order, I might as well post it now. Micro Ace A3391 East-I D, which I got on eBAY for 64 euro. I promise I will treat it better than what happened to its real life counterpart :-). And now it can keep my East-I Shinkansen some company (in which I still have to install interior lighting) :-)

    Same with transferwise but it’s cheaper without PayPal selling fees.

    Good catch! Where did you get it from?
  7. My advice: Skip Charlottenburg and go to Potsdam instead as a daytrip. Also in Berlin is a nice japanese Tempura restaurant (with actual japanese staff) if you are interested (near S-Bahn Savignyplatz): http://www.kushinoya.de/
  8. German Intercity (IC) trains models.

    Most likely you will be able to purchase many more trains now, as most german private eBAY vendors only accept bank transfer because Paypal is waaaaaaay too expensive to use when selling.

    Chadbag, Use Transferwise. Free and compatible with bank transfer between many countries, such as Japan - EU - US - Sillypore etc. And cheaper than even paypal friends due to accurate exchange rate. The recipient doesn't need an account. It works by you paying the company, and the company wiring the money on your behalf. Wiring money is completed in the next business day. I use it to purchase items between forum members and ebay sales/purchases too. transferwise.com/u/michelw27 if you want to sign up.
  10. Tomytec - Painted & Anything Bus Related

    Huh, the airport express has Concorde on it. Has concorde ever been in Japan?
  11. What did you order or the post deliver?

    I track everything I purchase in an excel sheet. This way I can keep tabs on how much I spend, and what my budget is, because I tend to get carried away sometimes. Maybe, it's an idea for you too.

    See for yourself. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10139819 MicroAce aint cheap.
  13. What did you order or the post deliver?

    Considering that the 6 set alone costs 21150 when it was new on HS, I’d say yes
