Artitec Model TT Truck kit build.
« on: March 25, 2021, 07:37:39 PM »
I figured I'd show off my next build here on the forum. I purchased this kit from Reynauld's for $15.00 US, which really isn't out of touch with kits of similar style. I was surprised when I opened that it wasn't injected plastic but resin and photo etched brass. It gave me a little appreciation for the price of the built ups when I saw the detail in the photo etch.

The resin parts are molded fairly clean

The directions sheet is similar to most model kits

This build won't be super-fast as I'm using it as filler work for other projects on the bench. I just wanted to show off another alternative to the loss of Jordan's

Pretty cool.

Are these coming directly from England or is there a US supplier?

Thanx

Bob, Artitec is based in the Netherlands. Reynauld's is I think in the Chicago area and deals in European trains. I also bought some built ups from MB Klein in Baltimore.

A couple weeks ago I was looking at these and left curious about their build quality. Looks like you are answering that for me.

Very cool.

A little while back, I ordered a few of the Artitec kits as well, including the Omnibus.  It seems that they are backordered a bit, but I am really looking forward to the Omnibus.


Can't wait to see Master Raymo in action on this one.
