Class 230 2-Car DEMU (Ex-D78 Stock)


Coverted from former London Underground D78 vehicles, the Class 230 DMUs are being introduced on several rural branch lines, as a low-cost alternative to new-build units. The power cars have been fitted with diesel generator sets and all vehicles refurbished to a very high standard, giving a new-train feel for a fraction of the cost.

The kit consists of two bodies, and two dummy chassis.

Before starting, remove the sprue from each part and clean with warm soapy water. White powder may collect in cavities.

The surface texture is slightly rough. However, with a little care, this will look reasonable from normal viewing distance.

Paint with primer, then with suitable top coat. You may wish to use wet and dry paper between coats to help smooth the surface finish.

Your kit will be ready for dispatch within three weeks

Suggested motorised chassis (Not included) Tomytec TM-06R
