This company back in 2004 or 2005 used to manufacture some models of the version of DB V100.0 diesel hydraulic. They released only V100 (article # 820114) and BR 211.0 (820115). Very expensive models, back in those days they would go for over 200 Euros (each). These models were scratchbuild and hand assembled. Every model was unique (kind of like the BR 104/204 from Rothe Top Technik). The shell was moulded in plastic and the bogies' frames also. Many different small parts consisted in assembing this model. Very outdated (prehistoric) methods were used. The gear box was plastic also, but the gears were metal and the motor was a Fauhaber one (geared for very slow speeds) made this model slower than a turtle. The frame looked like it was moulded in die cast. Old style couplers from BTTB were used (modified), directional lights were used (wheat of grain incandencent bulbs) 3X each end on the V 100 since it had no marker lights, on the BR 211.0 the shell was different, it came with both head and marker lights. I never owned that version, so I can not say for sure what the company used for the marker lights (maybe lightbulbs also). The models were not supplied with circuit boards. Some kind of circuitry was developed by the company (or the owner) some brass or copper tape was used to be sandwiched between the phenolic pieces (or same material used back in the days on circuit boards). The inscriptions looked like dry transfer or decals, but they were silk screened for sure. What a contraption! Not worth the money!

Yes and no. Some are very nice. Others have as many errors as Tillig's. Or have no real prototype.
