While beeing anxious to have the April Hobby Search shipment lost I received something Italian stuff...

 

As written in KIHA81 annouced thread - the shipment arrived sound and safe.

Lucky me 🤩

 

Now going to check the detail part bags and instructions.

Lot of fun to come!

The railcars are nice. So is the NSWGR 422 class on the flat wagon. I used to drive them when I was on the freight.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark.

Nice haul. Especially interested in some pics of that 70系.

 

Are you planning on a 1-611 Kiha 80 (M) or have a loco hauling your train?

I noticed this funny detail when doing the test run last night.

Only one motorized unit in the whole pile of cars.

 

Last month's shipment (that one which nearly got lost) brought the necessary キハ80(M)s - one set and キハ82, キロ80,  キハ80(M), キハ82 and one single キハ80(M), another キロ80 and 2* キシ80.

The plan is  

  

train #1   キハ81, キハ80(M), キハ82-900, キロ80, キシ80, キハ82, キハ81

train #2   キハ81, キロ80, キシ80, キハ80(M), キハ82-900

train #3   Loco, キハ82, キハ80(T), キハ82

Maybe I'll order one or two キハ80(T) and one キロ80 - but my budget went down by TOMIX and KATO doing the important things in the same month.

train #3   Loco, キハ82, キハ80(T), キハ82 

Maybe I'll order one or two キハ80(T) and one キロ80 - but my budget went down by TOMIX and KATO doing the important things in the same month. 

 

Yesterday I decided to add at least one キハ80(T) to my KIHA fleet.

No need to take the motorized キハ80 and another キロ80 is not a must have.

And ---- I saw that only the キハ80(M) is available at Hobby Search.

I went to drink some cups of tea.

Then came back to Hobby Search with the decision for the キハ80(M).

And ---- I saw that the キハ80(M) is sold out also at Hobby Search.

OK  let's fill the gap in my fleet with a キロ80 (still available).

Order placed and the キロ80 went to sold out.

I picked the last one.

 

By checking for an other add on car for my 481 or 165 I noticed some *bargain* items.

Curious filtering to 1/80 locomotives - the EF71 JNR is reduced by ~30% (29'808 yen down to 19'320) - <CLICK> mine.
Now I have the right helper engine for my キハ80 train #3.

Today I thought about my train consists.

The キハ82-900 in may train #1 faces to the rear end of a キハ80.

My 3rd キハ82 also faces to the rear end of another キハ.

I must ("would like to") have 2 キハ82 facing cab to cab.

With キハ82-901 and 902 I already have all キハ82-900s ever been on track I decided to add another キハ82. I love cab cars in between a train.

Still available at Hobby Search.

Order placed and the キハ82 went to sold out.

 

Now I am waiting for a shipment again.

About the other *bargains* I will post later.

This order became expensive (my budget level pointer now shows approx. late November 2019).

 

New constist plan (with * indicating the cab):

train #1   *キハ81, キハ80(M),* キハ82-900, キロ80, キシ80, キハ80(T), キハ81*

train #2   *キハ81, キロ80, キシ80, キハ80(M), キハ82-900*

train #3   EF71 , *キハ82, キハ82*,* キハ82, キロ80, キハ82*

Well, spent a bit more money than I was planning on. Good thing I don't have any holiday plans for this year, since most of the holiday money is already gone 😉

 

Recently got the H0-ish scale lumber, but cutting it to size and making everything fit well was a bit problematic. Ended up ordering a set of Micro Mark tools (Chop-it, Sand-it and the magnetic gluing jig). Not all that expensive until shipping had to be added. These things don't seem to be available in Europe, so had to order them from the US.

 

I then decided it was time to order the tools and materials needed to start laying track for my H0j/H0e adventure. I ended up ordering a fixture for a #6 H0j turnout and one for a #6 H0e turnout. The reason both are #6 is that I can use the same tool for filing the frogs and other filing requirements. Also ordered some pc board ties for the basic skeleton as well as wood turnout ties for the rest. (you solder the rails onto the pc board for strength, then add the wooden ties) And of course, a bunch of extras such as spikes, crossties, code 70 rail, and basically everything I need to start. Or at least, I hope I got everything 😄

 

No clue when it'll all arrive, the fixtures I wanted aren't ones they keep stocked, so they have to manufacture them first.

I see. It wasn’t clear from your photo that you had the relevant motor car and I know others have been confused before when ordering Kiha 58s.

 

I’ve just ordered 2 more Kiha 80 (T) so I can have a prototypical Tsubasa service

 

Kiha 81, Kiro, Kishi, Kiha, Kiha, Kiha, Kiha 81.

 

I’m using the motor car and Kiro from the 82 4 car set.

If I swap out the 81s for 82s, this is half of the Kamome formation, the part that went between Kyoto and Nagasaki. I’m considering another Kiro and Kiha(M) but it depends on availability. This would allow me to produce the 10 car Kuroshio.

 

Nice find on the EF71. The JNR ones have been sold out in a few places.

Well my Kiha 80s have just turned up so I can hopefully have a little running session this weekend. Still lots of detailing and numbering required and lighting needed.

 

Has anyone tried the TORM HO lights? I’ve not been hugely impressed with the Kato ones as they easily become dislodged so am looking at alternatives.

Finally got my EF65s that I've been eyeing for some time now, except not in that horrendous livery with "EF65" on the side.

Suuuuper excite for these. Will be snitching a decoder out of one of my other models so I can run one this weekend in an operating session because reasons. Hopefully these will be small enough to fit into the smaller industries on the layout but have more pulling power than the DE10 that I have been using.

And, of course, all the little tiny parts that will need to be applied. Guess I know what I'm doing before work today!
