The Italian company Amati made a kit in gauge 1 for an Orient Express CIWL sleeping car. I am building this kit, which has a very detailed interior. Since this interior cannot be seen easily when the kit is finished I made a some video shots before going  further:

This kit was issued in June 2018; it is not a limited edition and is still available from a number of retailers. Note that the manufacturer (Amati) is well known for their kits of model ships; they had never made a railroad kit. The kit is does not look like any other model railroad kit I have ever seen, but for sure the resulting car will float on water

FRED: Does that carriage have much underbody details? Are trucks supplied with this kit? Will you add figures before you place the roof on? Inquiring minds want to know! LOL!

Underbody details: not that many; some battery boxes, springing for the buffers and a generator:

Trucks: very detailed with lots of part to be attached with small screws:

Figures: a maker of 0 gauge figures (https://www.omen-miniatures.com/) for this period who makes also CIWL personnel like this:

announced he was going to make these in 1 gauge; I have not seen anything yet.
