What did you order or the post deliver? (Worldwide Models)

Are you going to paint the Leopards?

Probably not. They're late 80's models. Back then the Bundeswehr used NATO olive for vehicles anyway.

Decals would be nice though.

This youtube channel reminds me of you Suica.  He or she has a large collection of German trains and lots of BR 103's and of course Japanese trains.  I love his videos, short and sweet that you can watch over an over again of passing trains.  Haven't had a chance to ask him or her is they're a member of the JNS.  Here's a sample of one of their videos and the subject matter might be of interest to you. :)

I'm getting there, Junior, because the Baureihe 103 madness continues!

 

All of these rolled in this week.

It's fine. The light guide just got pushed inside a bit.

Hi all,

 

I couldn't let this EMU go. It's from Arnold.

I really like EMU's and DMU's!

 

Regards,

 

Marco

I got some more dutch models in the last few months, the olympic koploper, 1800, 1300 and the latest addition, the Hondekop. Here they are lined up with the models I already own.

Jealous. I want a Koploper so bad. But every time they appear on German eBay (which is very rarely) they go for prices I'm not really willing to pay...

You don't even want to check what they go for on dutch sites, such as catawiki or Marktplaats ;)

 

If you want to have an affordable one, try your luck at fairs. Koplopers that are not treated that nicely (read: used and without original packaging) I find occasionally. The Olympic Koploper I got from eBAY, at an auction, where it went for a very good price for these trains. I was lucky. And it turned out that the train was never really used that much and in -perfect- working condition, in perfect packaging too. Sometimes I'm just lucky.

 

I've also discovered an actual retail store that still sells it, in never used condition. For 379 bucks. Just sitting there, tempting. Waiting. Lurking. ;-)

Yup, I'm always checking at my local model train fair. There's never been any Dutch stuff though. Hardly an N gauge stuff at all to begin with. It's all about HO and TT gauge here.

Heh, i'll keep an eye out for you when I visit some N gauge markets in The Netherlands ;) Though the last time I found a Koploper was at the Intermodellbau this year. Tucked away in the back. And immediately sold to a passerby once I let go because I already had it (the blue/yellow version)
