How to open KATO E3 cabin car?

Recommended Posts

How do you safely open the E3 Shinkansen cabin car? As usual with KATO, there are no instructions as to how to open it, and I am quite weary of putting on too much force. The part at the ends underneath the cabin are confusing me. How do you open it? Pictures or videos preferred!

Thanks!

Just how long have you been applying so much force as to cause this weariness?

Well, I suppose you have to take out the side with the gangway first, and then pull on the other side to slide it out. But, it is very tough to do and the model is not easily replaceable. I'm just trying to make sure there is no button or something you have to switch in order to take it off, like you would on the TOMIX version, which is much easier to dismantle.

EDIT: I did manage to dismantle it. Apparently by moving the chassis down, and moving the body to the front with an uncomfortable amount of force, you can disassemble it.
