13 units, were introduced to OSE in 1973-74
Unfortunately while other older types are still running, the Caterpillars are withdrawn by now, rusting at AIR, Amphiklia and other known "graveyards"

Dear modelles,

Do you thing, creating little pieces, we can make a basic kit for changing the MABAR´s RENFE 10800 into OSE A220?

Hi BalkanExpress, later I'll make a sort list of what is needed as I see the model at the photos
could you give us some details about the original RENFE loco? built, dimensions etc, to see if it corresponds to the OSE one?

this one seems to be a really fine model, better than the Mabar probably, but I guess it costs quite more...
It must also be more difficult to convert a metal model than a plastic one

Dear all,

Miniaturas Lacalle's RENFE 10800 is out for long time. So apreciate by collectors (I own two of them), prices get unbelieveable sometimes for people.

So that's why MABAR decide to built it another time. It will be so widely produce and probably the V era (red-grey livery) will be found cheaper after the initial euphoria (They will appear for our Christmas presents at Magic Kings night at January, the 6th).

So, let's work for our OSE version. What do you need exactly?

regards
