C57 Locomotive | 1:24 Model

    I'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.

    The 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.
