RTR From MTB - Ready to Run SW1200

Postby CSD » Fri Jan 27, 2012 3:12 pm

Well, Folks, here it is. I've had the opportunity to collaborate with MTB over the last few months on the prospect of a TT scale North American prototype, the SW1200. The criteria set forth for the model is that it would be ready to run, meet modern expectations for quality, include purpose built parts (NO scavenged mechanisms from other models, etc.), modern electronics and have a price point targeted well below the 200 USD mark.

MTB has generously donated the time and resources to the development so far as a gift to North American TT modelers in an effort to promote the scale. However, we are at the point now where we need some market research as to whether the project would be feasible or not. Let me know your thoughts; would you buy one, what paint schemes do you like, how many smiley faces fit into the text box, would you buy two, etc. Please keep in mind that that there is no promise on delivery of this model currently as interest will determine the path forward. I hope to hear lots of enthusiastic feedback from you all of you!


Here are a few drawings to look at:

Great news!
I'll definitely buy one, I like RTR locomotives.

As for me, I need SOO Line painting scheme - maroon (as Wisconsin Central) or red-and-white, no matter.

...but I didn't understand a question about "smiley faces fit into the text box"... :?:

Thanks, Arseny. I've always like the SOO's red/white paint scheme myself.

Don't worry about the smiley faces. It was just a small joke about the emoticons and peoples excitement (I hope).

I've a flat Worsley Works SW1200 kit for a SW1200RS mod here. So what's with the MTB moto kit? Or will the chassis be separately available?

It's an RTR - not a kit.
