So, i should go to modifying my model of it..


FYI Johannes, in my photo of A504 the top of the battery box is blue and not red. And the white goes over the battery box edge.

Thanks, Christo, i have seen some differents in the painting scheme of these rebuilts. Like ANAROUS`s pictures, the battery box on the 503 is red on the top, i think is it same at the top of the front hood. So, i have choosed the A 503. Next time, i will bring cleaning equipment to the prototype 8-)

Dear friends,

There is a small number of MLW kits for sale with either Austrains or Bowser bogies. Due to difficulties with the people building them, I no longer supply these ready to run but erail ;) might oblige.

Christo, cleaning works with warm water, soap and a ultrasonic bath. You can apply a primer coat with Tamya-Spray or others. I think all plasics- suitable colors will working.
Please note the Handbrake-rod sides must be placed under the cab. To avoid too much of force, apply slightly grinding paper on the holding bolts.

Exactly, by grinding slighly the surface (and reducing the diameter) the bolt slips better in the bogie frame.

I would like to congratulate Johannes for the fine designing work, he has done with these sideframes.
I have got all of them and I must say that they are super. I think also that extreme detail material is far
more better than ultra detail.
For cleaning purposes someone can use also aceton with a help of a brush. Be careful with aceton, because if you deep a acrylic printed piece in aceton for a period longer than ten minutes you may destroy it. I have lost a faur body after one hour deeped in aceton.
