All these models are made from resin castings which I produce, using masters I designed and produced. The KVZ-TsNII bogies are made from five resin castings per bogie – bolster, two inner sideframes, and two outer sideframes. Branchline delrin axle bearings are mounted in the inner sideframes. The bogies have 11mm NEM wheels or RP25 38-inch wheelsets from Jay-Bee. All models except the baggage car have interior detail as appropriate to each type. The close-coupling equipment from Keen Systems in the UK, and you can select Roco close-couplers, European loop couplers, or Kadee #19.
For the first production models, I am producing USSR MPS coaches in olive green with metal emblem; Russian (RZD) cars in hunter green; and Ukraine Railways cars in two different shades of blue. I would be grateful if you would share your opinions about what proportion of the models I should produce in each livery.
And now, the models.
The restaurant car contains castings of the tables and chairs in the dining area. The kitchen area is partitioned off from the corridor. The “Restoran” letterboard is a separate casting. Price $49.00 each
This model represents a baggage car with accommodation for crew members. No interior detail other than partitions in the compartments. Price $39.00 each.
This sleeping car is detailed with compartments and corridor partitions, and has the older-style roof vents. Price $45.00.
Same as above, but the roof has the more modern torpedo roof vents. Price $45.00.
This sleeper has alcoves with fixed bunks instead of compartments; that’s why you can see through from one side to the other. Older style ends, roof has old-type vents. Price $45.00.
Same as above, but the ends are of the more recent vertical-ribbed type and the roof does not have vents over the alcoves. Price $45.00.
