There's really no need to apply glue to the underbody parts and bogie parts. They will stay properly in place even if you not glue them.

 

Interesting to see that you can install Kato couplers so easily though. I didn't expect that.

Mine should arrive tomorrow most likely... and yeah... after seeing that you can install these Kato couplers so easily i think i need to get those myself for my keihan trams, and from my experience I can agree that there is really no need for gluing the parts...

Note that installing bogie-mounted TN couplers is the same process. I personally prefer body-mounted TN couplers, but I still haven't installed any of those on my trains yet because they are quite expensive.

You have found TN body mounted couplers that work without fouling the mechs?

I assume you have tried installing body-mounted couplers then? I haven't tried myself yet, but if it doesn't work I'll just go with bogie mounted couplers then. They're cheaper as well.

Yes.  Nothing body mounted included third party options has worked for me yet.  I'm not saying they don't exist.  I just haven't done or seen anything that does work.

Interesting.  I notice he has most of the Platz versions and about half the Tomytecs available.  What where did he locate the others?  I seen like the green tea version on yahoo for 15,000 yen.

They might all be TomyTec ... I have seen a number of people who've used the Platz kit decals on the TomyTec models ... requires some "adjusting" since the Platz (really Green Max) kits are oversized ... but it works

I believe he made the others himself. Such as this one: https://twitter.com/SUBA_Tc103_555/status/741587031118073856

 

I found out that he also has a website, offering some decals and other detailing parts for mainly Keihan 600's: http://www.legacyworld.net/~6stars/

 

looks pretty nice (expensive at ¥14,990) but custom decal work is expensive when done right

 

Here's their version of the Lake Biwako special colors on 609/610

Gordon, can you tell us where you found the pictures of the model? I was not able to trace them back on either the website or the Twitter page.

Here's a nice custom paint job of a Keihan 600 in the new Keihan livery. It's obviously still fictional at the moment, but I won't be surprised if Keihan actually paints the Ishiyama-Sakamoto Line trains into this livery at some point.

I hope MicroAce do a release of this version, if they do though at similar prices to what I paid my original two would be nice.
