Large / Good things DID come....
December 30, 2007, 03:10:00 PM
Friday morning, I received a call which made my year.  Waiting for pickup was a Green #455 K-27.

I concur with Roger's post on the packing...excellent.  A suggestion was made to me concerning UNpacking. First get the cab end out a little , then scoop your arm under the loco, and lift,  it will pop out of the packaging fairly easily.

I am totally blown away by this loco. Detail is excellent, paint and lettering sharp. This version included a spark arrestor and various other parts (I have a bag of two small black discs as well).

My project for today is to oil her up and have a little fun.  It was worth the wait!

Happy New Year to all,


Large / More K-27 questions
November 16, 2007, 10:52:58 PM

I've been impressed so far with the 1:20.3 offerings......keep 'em coming!

Two questions: First, the green boiler K-27. Is the boiler darker than the picture posted in the photo gallery? I'm not complaining.....I pictured a different shade of green.

Second: I was told today by my retailer that his original shipment of 50 K-27's is now only going to be 20; I will not be one of the 20.  I was also told that this is an issue that other retailers will face as well. Can you confirm or deny this statement?
