Oh no! Feel like I should have a Tobu Ryomo as it was the first express I used extensively when I first moved to Japan.
Return of the Leworm
Strange enough, the Karaoke coach is back as well ~
It's this time of the month again
Fujisan View Limited Express, the remake of the old JR Central Series 371.
I wouldn't call it a remake, it's more akin to a relooking. Unfortunately done by Eiji Mitooka.
Yes, I agree unfortunately a work of Elji Mitooka. It is cut down from seven cars to three cars. Never the less it is a full train for those with small layouts.
I still don't see MA's Choice as something that will bring them money. It's nice they are trying to monetize their moulds, but I'm a puzzled by this month choice. Seeing their recent releases, you can definitely feel they are struggling. They didn't use to bring out so many smaller sets. I expect the freight car sets can fit inside their VHS-tape size cases rather than their large bookcases.
Let's catch up with the MA train - here's their July poster we missed here last month
And continue immediately with posters from August. In addition to a usual N scale poster, one with a HO scale kit is also out!
The KIHA47 + KIHA140 Ibusuki no Tamatebako causes a flashback to an old Star Trek episode.
Greenmax are also pushing an 811 with 3D printed samples in a good number of model shops. Microace has the updated livery as well as the older one, both currently in use.
Be interesting to see how they compare to one another.
