GreenMax - New Releases

Recommended Posts

Yavianice

Small update, I installed TN couplers on the 50625 Green Max (which was harder to do than with Tomix trains because green max are a bit flimsy feeling). Green max does not mess about. Close coupler means REALLY closely coupled, it's by far the closest coupled train I have. The train is just barely even able to go over the 315/282 radii from KATO. I guess there is a reason Green Max does not model the gangway connection, because if it did, it could not take any corner at all.

That blue symphony looks superb, not very cheap though. I’m a bit torn what to do.

I see the trend of GM producing more and more 211s... interesting... That Odakyu 8000 is nice, but I guess i'll stick with my Tomytec ones for the time being...

I must say I missed the Oykot train the first time round, so I am so gonna get it this time... The Sanfrecce wrapping train is pretty nice, and it's strange GM modelled the 103 series in different livery as 3 separate 2-car consist train with motors! 

 

The bantan set is different. Wonder why they packaged it together? I would be fine with a 2 car set w/o special livery.  But greenmax has been on a roll with special liveries.

 

I am contemplating the 113 kits but I have so many other greenmax kits on hand right now. I finally got the tr50 and tr47 bogies for my economy 10 series(joban line). Bogies have jumped in price so I have been selective on what I am building as of late form my stash.

Does anyone who has the Kintestsu Blue Symphony have a  review of it?  I am tempted to pick it up despite the wallet-pain-inducing cost.

 

Would you still buy it after owning it?  Any buyer's remorse?

Sheffie did a small one here

 

 

I picked one up as it was really cheap (well compared to its list price not other trains) on amazon.jp and its is a beauty and runs nicely. Very classy looking and nice rich blue. A quick look at the table lamps appeared that one may be missing as no table there, but I did not light it up while looking and give it much time.

I also own the kintetsu blue symphony and I really like it! Don’t forget to buy some Kato couplers for close coupling. TN is a waste of money on greenmax trains.

If I had to criticize the blue symphony, after a fair amount of running, I’d say that the end of the carriages are the weak spot. The couplers aren’t at all close, and there’s no kind of bellows sleeve at all—just a white plastic door. 

 

If you don’t mind buying a couple of accessories, then, it’s just a great little train. It looks marvellous and it runs very nicely.
