Previously mentioned here, also there'll be a Munich version.

These used to go past my apartment in Berlin, one for the Christmas list :D

I do wonder how many can tell the difference between 1:148, 1:150 and 1:152.   There are plenty of 2mm modellers who ignore the difference between 1:148 and 1:152 and happily put 2mm wheelsets into Farish diesels. 

Seriously, the big problem with Japanese is usually the gauge.  OTOH I believe the Munich trams were standard gauge anyway- so for a modern UK layout they would be OK - more of a problem if running on a Continental layout opposite Arnold and Hobbytrain trams which are 1:160.


Having said that, I mixed 1:150 Tokyo trams and 1:160 Arnold and Linea8 trams on Furtwangen Ost and nobody commented.

1:150 tram vs 1:160 train:



I don't see any jarring difference.

The only case where I reckon a difference would be visible is if versions of the same model in different scales were running together, like the Class 66 (1:160 from Kato, 1:148 from Farish and Dapol), but the number of models that applies to is vanishingly small.

Didn't know Kato did a Class 66?  :hmmm:

Apart from the Eurostar, that would have to be the only British prototype! Except the Class 66 isn't really British, is it.

Thanks! I honestly can't recall those posts. The difference in size is pretty blatant when they're next to each other!
