Ballast Regulator KSP2002E

December release.. hopefully this isn't plagued with delays like the tampers.

If they bring one out in JR Tokai livery I will definitely get one, I am normally a whore for Per Way machinery and I already have the tamper but I am not really keen on the stock standard yellow version.

Surprisingly I've ordered this... I reckon I needed a maintenance vehicle, and this fits in the bill perfectly, a ballast machine, looks very professional, common yellow for maintenance vehicles, come with motor, directional lights, interior lightings pre-installed, why not?  :P

I saw it pass by on several outlets today! I'm quite excited to finally see the Aizu and Yagan versions as well. However, I do need double pantograph versions still...

Exactly the same reason that I've just ordered this as well

That 817 is pretty... tempting...

Did I recall a somewhat familiar release for this?  http://www.greenmax.co.jp/image/new_release/new_release_201704_02.jpg

I didn't order it exactly because of the disappointing quality of the last Greenmax MOW release.

I'm actually quite glad that's nothing for me from here... i'm been most spent out recently ordering items that I really shouldn't be buying...

I don't know why one would bother getting the Greenmax Keikyu 2100 when there's a Kato version available. The Kotoden trains are a bit of a surprise, but just way too expensive compared to their Tomytec counterparts.

Maybe the extra expense for a better motor and running ability, better details and actual directional lighting on the ends is worth it to some.

If anything, Greenmax have saved their hides with the new motor. This motor is IMO vastly superior to anything the other manufacturers have in their range for commuter trains at the moment. Especially compared with Tomytec, the Greenmax models are worth the extra expense.

I'm not too sure about the Keikyu 2100 either, but there must be a hardcore following that will buy them anyway to rake a profit for Greenmax.

I found this on HS website:

seems like a new item from Greenmax... platform screen doors! Will need more information and some pictures to see how they look and work... will they be able to fit on Tomix or Kato ones?

Looks like it has little tabs on the bottom.  So you'll most likely need to drill a hole into the platforms to fit the walls.

Well, not entirely new. Greenmax already released the original unpainted product in 2010: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10105688

But those are solid doors.

 

The new version which you say is not new has glass doors.

Official poster from GreenMax...  I think it's a nice idea to have the screen doors, but I do hope I don't need to drill holes on the nice platforms... it adds a really nice realistic feel to the platforms!

I suppose you could always snip off the pins and just glue them to the surface.  It'll be neat to see the clear doors, although I feel that on the full scale they are kinda ruining the classic feeling of being on a platform.
