KTM announced they'll produce JR-E Series E4 Shinkansen "Max" in A/W 2021
The Coloring until 2014 is a limited item for a company store.

Not familiar with the manufacturer. Why would they make a product that both Kato and Tomix make?

KTM is a manufacture who produce HO scale by Brass.

They used to produce American Train like UP FEF-3 in 1960s

An 8 car E4 from KTM would set you back a cool ¥560,000.

 

They are very nice brass models assembled by hand. They have a Youtube channel.

 

 

@Modellbahn JP I seem to remember a shop selling HO shinkansen towards the top of one of the mall buildings next to landmark tower in Yokohama. Not sure if that was KTM or just an independent selling their products.

 

I remember being in awe but also being put off rekindling my interest in model railways as it was extremely pricey. I don’t think i was aware it was brass at the time. 

 

Anyway 4 years later i got into Japanese n gauge.

That would be a company shop of KTM in Yokohama.

They also deal items which are produced by other maker like Endo and Tenshodo etc.

My dream is to get KTM's Grand Hikari for 16-cars!

There's a store in a basement on the west side of Ikebukuro Station as well. I wandered in there once out of curiosity and smiled politely at the nice models and their prices before beating a hasty retreat.

 

(Mind you, compared to the O gauge models on display in Imon in Oimachi, it's almost a bargain).
