Re: D51 Japanese Mikado back in stock
- Hobby Search is once again sold out of this item. Be interesting to see if they bring in another batch or if Rob purchased the remaining stock of this model from Tenshodo.

As for the new Mike in Z wish I knew rob was going to carry them as I just ordered one the other night also. Will run as a Z scale but will also see about converting one to Nn3.

- That will be great to have an easier ordering outlet. If they make 'U.S.' versions (and they also sell out), that should give them confidence to produce different models with different driver arrangements. However, their quality MUST be controlled the they are not up to Mãrklin levels. You do get what you pay for. But the detail is there, very sharp, deep detail.
