Product in Depth
Built in 1938 by the Japanese National Railways (JNR) & Japanese Government Railways, the D51 was built in larger numbers than any other locomotive made in Japan. This is a truly stunning model made from high-quality brass & steel. This amazingly detailed 1:24 scale model is available to build in different shipments (6, 12 or as a complete kit), complete with a short length of track and base on which to display it.
Mainly constructed from solid brass, with white-metal die-castings, the completed model is 880mm long (including the tender) and weighs over 10kg.
The model includes working lights, a whistle and steam sound effects. You can choose to paint the model black like the real locomotive, or leave it with a bare finish to highlight the metalwork .
Even as a model-making novice, you can build this unique 1:24 scale model. We provide clear step-by-step instructions to show you how to assemble and finish the parts - every step of the way...
Even if you've never tried this type of project before, you'll be able to put your D51 steam locomotive together in easy stages, learning the skills as you go.

2014-08-20 14:44:58This is my second DeAgostini build, after the Zero. I was expecting nothing short of fantastic, and I was not in the least disappointed! The brass is perfectly cut and cast, and the zinc parts are cast perfectly as well. I am only on despatch 4, and am eagerly awaiting all the rest. Thank you DeAgostini, for another great model!
2014-08-20 14:44:28This is a beautiful kit. All parts are cast - brass and white metal and pre-formed/bent/shaped brass, all the pieces so far are fantastic. This is a very well thought out and produced kit. All you have to do is bolt/screw, super glue/epoxy the parts together, really easy, or for the advanced modeler, soldering. The potential for mild detailing or super detailing is great. Just study the video/picture links here; http://forum.model-space.co.uk/default.aspx?g=posts&t=10862 So far, I'm up to pack three, every part so far is awesome. Everything so far is so well engineered/produced/manufactured that the price is quite reasonable. If you're a steam locomotive fan, with the means, but not the expert modeling skills, you can handle this kit. Join up, follow the members builds and you will have an impressive locomotive model. Take the plunge, as I did, and enjoy. Best regards, mwb
