    Hi all,

    i just wan to show 2 pictures of a train of mine wich is being used as prototype.

    This prototype is made to show people what they are going to produce in china, so people can sign in for this train!

    the model is made in WSF and made smooth by sanding!

    Thanx Ana!

    The person is Kees-Jan like I said, he is from this website:
    http://reel-cees.nl/

    This company repaints trainmodels to exclusive models (as seen on the website)

    They now work together with the company Elo-trains who produces modeltrains.

    At this moment we're talking about how to go from here on (inspecting this model, checking all measurements and the shape offcourse) then I create a new model, wich will be send to china for injection molding.

    ohhh don't tell anyone else, he will also be painting my other model! but that's just a model for me, no mass production :D
