Robert, if you're coming to the next show, consider joining us on the other side of the table. And bring your E95.

The subsequent conversation is now a separate thread here, just to keep this thread model-related.

My personal impression about this model is that: looks good (lots of details), reasonable price for a work of art piece (talking about the insides), but it runs too slow for a model that is equiped with 2 syncronised motors. It was a freight loco so it makes sense it should not run like the I C E.

I don't like the messed up logo on the old DRG version. It might have been caused by some law?

Our local railway club repaired an old little diesel switcher and repainted it to the scheme of its first owner - which was German Luftwaffe. No problems with the logo. http://www.jernbanen.dk/Fotos/Motor/DSB_Traktor2_2010.jpg

I may not be correct but I think it is illegal to use things like swastika and other Nazi related emblems.

Nazi ideology should be illegal, not any symbols. Symbols themselves do not make any harm. I checked Wiki and it says that the symbol is outlawed in Germany. Btw, it is Hindu and Buddhist symbol + one of Chinese characters. Stolen and abused by Nazis.

The swastika (like ConducTTor said) it is banned in Germany, but Roco which is in Austria, still uses the emblem on the German steam models they manufacture and nobody complains about that fact.

More than half of mankind lives in cultural environments, where the swastika is initially, tranditionally a symbol of fortune. And exactly this is the reason why Hitler chose this symbol for his purposes.

In principle the swasika is illicit in Germany. But there's an exception: You are permitted to use this symbol to portray historical truth correctly. So model railway is kind of grey area because prototypical model railways are a representation of historical truth.
But in Germany a very paranoid way of handling World War II related subjects is usual. So hardly any model railway manufacturer dares to use this disputed symbol.
