2017-01-24 17:26:09I have built most things, but never a locomotive. This is fantastic, pre painted parts and easy to assemble. And the end result looks superb.
2016-06-28 20:17:22I'm not really a train person but after watching a number of people build the D51 I thought it would be really cool to build a train model as something different. So when the C57 was released I decided to take the plunge. Having received my first pack I am glad that I did, the quality of the parts and the Matt black paint finish is stunning, I'm itching to get started.
2016-05-25 17:06:43The C57 comes pre-painted and a semi-matt finish that looks very good on the parts. The quality of the cast parts is very good and everything goes together like a dream with easy instructions to follow. One to put on the wish list.
