Construction

Plastic kit, or factory-assembled model in a presentation case.

The model represents the continental European version. Some modifications are required to represent the GB version.

Plastic kit modifications in summary:

  • reduce the cab height and, independently, the driver's window height (subsequently reduces the roof height)
  • don't fit the supplied roof detail
  • construct a new roof with sloping edges and a single exhaust vent
  • don't fit the solebar detailing strips
  • fit different access steps
  • rearrange the roof support posts and safety railings
  • modify some of the on-board equipment
Note: If the model has been factory-assembled, subsequent modification is difficult.

Motive power

Not included.

Could previously be motorised with sb Modellbau item number 25038 (138.50 OCT03), but this has been replaced with item 25039 (185.00 OCT23), which is only available by special order in quantities of 5 or more.

Alternatively, the motor-bogie from the Bachmann/Liliput 07-16 tamper could be used.

Note: Motorising a factory-assembled model is difficult.
