Arnold HN4189
« on: June 17, 2017, 08:54:26 pm »
Checking photos of the new Arnold HN4189 Deutsche Bundesbahn green Bm233 I noticed the strange positioning of the brake clasps/shoes on the bogies: nowhere near the wheel they are supposed to align with. This reminds me of the early Bachmann OO Br1 coaches, where the brake shoe was positioned way out on the bogie frame.
I hope the photo that I have seen is not a production model.
Check:

and you will see what I mean.

If I have to replace the brake shoes, I won't be paying nearly Euro 50 for the priveledge.

I understand, from information gleaned from the 1zu160 website, that the roof ventilators are wrong as well.
Nit-picking perhaps, but for the price asked I think I'll give it a miss for a while. If I can get one for about 25 Euro then I'd consider changing the Kuck Kuck ventilators to the correct location above the compartments, in other words offset.
I have quite a few coach rebuild programs lurking at the back of the workbench at the moment.
KUSWA do the ventilators in plastic.

That looks astonishingly crude, compared with this recent Minitrix offering, which does also have offset roof ventilators...
