If you have a moment and the inclination, I'd appreciate clarification on what you are saying there.
Best rgds, SZ
See below, museum quality(?) locomotive for less than e3000 with a minimum radius of less than a metre, it doesn't add up.
When I asked Wunder why the V160 in brass was cancelled the reply I received was that today Germans would not pay the e1800 or so for a brass diesel.
In the UK Masterpiece can get a high end diesel project off the ground for around £3300 or double the price at todays exchange rate.
Germans want maximum model for minimum price, common sense says something has to give, invariably the detail. This is self evident by the lack of high end brass being made for the German market , Lemaco/Lematec have clearly given up on Germany.
I own one MBW diesel as the V221 will now clearly not be manufactured in brass to 1.43.5 and I am not impressed. The Lenz I have seen and used is of comparatively good quality though.
I hope this clarification suffices, the facts speak for themselves. My German collecting is now confined to ebay and secondhand dealers.
