Has anyone built one. I did their Dora and it was fantastic. Any reviews? I can't seem to find any.
What about their 1/72 Locomotives?

Rail gun

Hi,
I've got to the weathering stage with mine and I must say I was very impressed with the level of detail that can be obtained straight from the box. Just need some turned brass shells that I believe Schatton Modellbau do. The only problem I encountered was with the build up of the wheel bogies. I have never built anything railway before and found the construction fiddly and parts very fragile, I do have sausages for fingers though. If you've built the DORA you should have no problems. Thouroughly recommend this kit.
Cheers

Hobby Boss Lokomotive

October 17 2011, 12:22 PM 

I built the Br-52 Kriegslokomotive and it was a fun build; if a bit scary with all the fiddly bits on it. It was tough getting all the wheels to line up straight, and I had an issue with the outside connectors on the large wheels not going on right sue to the position of the wheels. that step definitely needs to be done while the glue on the axles is still wet.

It builds into a gorgeous model:

I just picked up the Dora as well and hope to get started on her soon. Meanwhile, I'm trying to finish up my armored train.

I don't know if I want to try it after stopping my 1/35th scale one over a year ago.

I'd say....

Go for it. This one doesn't have as many pieces as the 1/35th scale one. Yeah, they may be smaller pieces, but nothing a tweezers couldn't handle if it came to that. I'm certain that if you started the 1/35th scale one; you'll have no problems with this in 1/72 scale.
