Fleischmann 838312 Swiss post wagons
« on: October 15, 2019, 02:56:23 AM »
A good while ago we discussed the Minitrix Swiss bogie post wagons and it was noted that they were inaccurate representations of the real thing. I have a huge collection of Swiss post vans but avoided these for that reason

Has Fleischmann made the same compromise (the models look pretty similar at a glance) or are the new Fleischmann models more accurate?

Hard to say really until we see the actual model.
If the photo is to be believed then yes, they have probably done a better job than Minitrix but IMO the area below the doors isn't quite right and the horizontal creases are still too subtle. They aren't very visible on the Roco version either so the Fleischmann photo could well be another HO montage.
