^^^ It's supposed to be the first of their TT models in the "Expert" line. I guess that means more detail? Should be selling for about 80 Euro.

ok, yeah i see now, the coupler. have to go looking for a plan for one. it has 8' wheelbase trucks or thereabout which does make it suitable for a fw things, at least in terms of trucks.

Yes, they are TT, 84.99 Euros and Piko has already updated the Web shop:

Of course they are not available yet.

I hope there is more rolling stock to come, I like their pricing....makes it so much easier to get a longer set up running :dance:

Piko's details are not as high but accepable, I recently purchased this model and will post some detail pictures shortly:
http://www.piko-shop.de/index.php?vw_ty ... w_id=10772
Not bad for what you pay for :thumbup:

Also, Piko has 3 model lines as far as detail goes: Hobby for beginners (cheapest), Expert (more details) and Classic (Piko's Highend models, most details and better mechanical and digital components) Unfortunatly, since they have checked out the market for TT scale (they are pretty big in HO) we have only gotten the Hobby line yet. Let's hope this will change soon :pray:

If you look closely at the G1206 you can see they've finally started using the normal coupler mounting instead of their funky one.

New pre-production models by Gabor. 1934 "Horch-850" and Mercedes-Benz L45 truck:

Sorry, but I do not know - if Horch cars were exported in USA or Canada in 1930s...

But they were popular in Russia after 1945... ;)

Some other cars (I mean automobiles):
