Mehano go bye bye

Postby ConducTTor » Thu Nov 05, 2009 6:53 pm

It seems Mehano is no longer in business. They were having some financial problems earlier in the year and planned to move their facilities to China. As of a couple of days ago, their website no longer exists. It seems they're gone. Too bad, their Blue Tiger model is phenomenal and they were ready to release more TT models. :( :(

Too bad. I'm not really interested in the blue tiger, but any TT producer that goes under is bad news. On a related note, I've been looking at some ESU sound decoders and they have one for the blue tiger. Go to this link and scroll down to play the sound (http://www.esu.eu/en/downloads/sounds/g ... 35/diesel/). Maybe you will find something you like.

Bad news. I've heard about it too.
Blue Tiger seems to be a nice model, but I didn't see it available nowwhere it the Russian shops.

...But there are also some good news.

It appears they had a prolonged website outage - it's back now. Hopefully that means they're doing fine and will give us more fabulous TT scale models in the future!

As far as I heard, it was only the toy section that had financial problems. The railroad section was not directly affected.

Hello Dibbedabb and welcome aboard! Given that railroads are not toys, that makes sense :P

Well, it has now been offically confirmed. Mehano has no further ambitions to pursue any new TT scale models. What a shame! However, they will make new production batches for the existing Blue Tiger (Which is available in 3 different liveries and 4 different loco numbers) and Modellbahn Shop Sebnitz will sell them.http://www.tt-ersatzteile.de/ :(

07.03.2011 Aktuelle Information zu Produkten der Firma Mehano:

Heute wurde uns Bestätigt das es keine weiteren Ambitionen zur Herstellung der vor ca. 3 Jahren angekündigten TT-Modelle mehr gibt. Daher werden die bereits bekannten Modelle der Diesellokomotive Class 66, Diesellokomotive G2000 und der Doppelcontainerwagen nicht zur Auslieferung kommen.

Sollten Sie das Modell vorbestellt haben werden wir dieses aus Ihrem Kundenkonto löschen.

Jedoch konnten wir mit MEHANO eine Neuauflage für den Modellbahnshop Sebnitz des „Blue Tiger“ in 1:120 aushandeln. Die Modelle werden in den nächsten Tagen zur Auslieferung kommen. Diese befinden sich bereits auf dem Weg nach Sebnitz.

Folgende Varianten werden erhältlich sein:

Art.-Nr.: 53-55534 Bombardier Blue Tiger II der HVLE (1), Ep.V 149,90 €
Art.-Nr.: 53-55528 Bombardier Blue Tiger II Pollok, Ep.V 149,90 €
Art.-Nr.: 53-55705 Bombardier Blue Tiger II der HVLE (2), Ep.V 149,90 €
Art.-Nr.: 53-55530 Bombardier Blue Tiger II der MKB, Ep.V 149,90 €

Bei einer Bestellung von 2 Modellen erhalten Sie einen einmaligen Preisnachlass von 10,00 Euro* pro Modell. (139,90 Euro pro Stück) (* dieser Preis wird Ihnen aus Technischen Gründen nicht bei Ihrer Onlinebestellung angezeigt. Der günstigere Preis wird Ihnen bei Auslieferung berechnet.)

"Modellbahn Shop Sebnitz will sell them"

And that's the problem.

I think those models are not limited for sale at MBS only. They are offered at more than one Czech e-shop.

As far as I know, the Blue Tiger now offered are not a new production, but stock. And I heard that the toolset went to another model railroad manufacturer. So - everything could happen.
