  1. What did you order or the post deliver?

    i seriously like the Kato long house... i feel that it is much better in terms of looks over the Tomix one which looked pretty 'basic'..... The Kato one even has inspection bays inside the house!
  2. Tomix - New Releases

    Really needs to see if Tomix can keep up to the superb standard Kato had already done... including that amazingly detailed interior with lighting for that dining car tables and fireplace!
  3. What did you do on your layout today?

    WOW Paul buddy seriously, your layout rocks! Makes me really guilty of not working harder on mine... those lights really makes the city alive!
  4. Kato - Rolling Stock Details

    yap... good news if it just sprung out of the forceps and onto the table, to be easily found. Bad news is that there are NO additional handle bars provided. and if you lost one then that's it. further, GreenMax doesnt have spares to be purchased.... it seriously sucks. i did once when i was in top form and got all 4 handle bars on my Odakyu 1000 1051-formation, and lost one on my Odakyu 1000 red version which i really like....
  5. Kato - New Releases

    me too... considering the same factor... except one huge problem. i have already pre-ordered the Tomix one....
  6. Kato - Rolling Stock Details

    Nice of Kato to at least have a little sprue on these small handles! I was installing the GreennMax ones on my Odakyu 1000 series and that is an absolute terror.... http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10332245/50/1
  7. What did you do on your layout today?

    Thanks! now to start finding some real estate space to place this on....
  8. What did you do on your layout today?

    Wow i like that kids playground! Does it comes in a kit? the colors and the cones are very nice for a kids playground!
  9. What did you order or the post deliver?

    i think this is an older product is is being discontinued, as they have a newer product that comes pre-painted (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10495188)
  10. How did you improve your rolling stock?

    And finally got enough courage to challenge installing interior lights on the Shikishima.... Overall, it isnt that tough, as there already seem to be slots dedicated for the 11-214 LED light bulb, and they fit in securely nice and tight... it's just the sheer fear of opening the shell on such an expensive and beautiful train... but i had to have the lights in it to showcase the beautiful interior that Kato has did such a fine job... the details of the interior are truly amazing... from the engine block on the end cars and the observatory, to the lighted up lights on the table of the buffet car, to the light up fireplace on the entrance car... it's just breath-taking... even more so when you open up the shell to view them!
  11. more work on the layout over the CNY holidays, and we can finally see the shape of the town coming up.... i really have WAY too much buildings to go into the layout.... help.... the right side with the inclines is where city centre is, along with a small tram loop and loads of arcade shops, a spa, and a fire station.... the other side is the residential area, with the apartments, some small houses and a hospital block... in the centre we have the flagship bridge spanning over the town and some tall buildings and a hotel to build up the landscape... the space behind the station is where i will build the station area, with waiting taxis and buses... great way to park my buses too! lastly, the 3 toilet rolls are the planned pillars for an overhead highway spanning across... cant build curve ones (too much difficulty) so i chose to build one at an angle to park a bit more vehicles...

    Good fine my friend!! i would mind having one East-i D too! Yahoo auctions are generating more expensive than what you got!
