TT Scale 2012 NEW Models

J P said it in the post before mine. :P

The Tillig V100 (later 110, later 20x) is a DR (Eastern) design, much boxier than the 290 or the DB V100 (later 211 and 212) - which *is* available from Modist.

Short form there's much more difference between a 290 and Tillig's V100 than there is between an F3 and an F7; closer to the differences between the F7 and the FA1. And the biggest visual difference between the 290 and the DB V100 is 2 metres (or 1.7 cm in the model). It is also the last of the major West German diesel types that hasn't yet been produced in model form (not counting the DB V 60/260/360, which Kuehn will be releasing).

So yeah, for someone not modelling West Germany, the difference may not be important, but since the primary market for TT is (and probably always will be) Germany, it's an important type, and a model of it makes sense. Now for someone to do a VT 98 aka Schienenbus...

And we definitely need MaK 1000 to model Canadian National or Canadian Pacific in 1956! :grin:

BR 290 is not only for Era IV.
It can be used also for Era V and VI. It is likely that Piko will come with newer DB paint schemes too (orient-red, ocean-blue and traffic-red).
DB Schenker used 499 of BR 290 and its clones on Dec 31, 2005. Many of them are still in use now. I have seen a couple of them switching in Maschen in July.

A further difference is the purpose.

V100 was made for freight and passenger service while V90 was made primarily for switching and for light freight service. V90 does not even have a steam generator or HEP set.

Additionally, V90 is used almost all over Germany, nowadays. Only few units of West German V100 were used for a short time in the early 1990's in East Germany. And East Germany is the major market for TT-stuff.

By the way V90 is also usable for Era III—not only from IV on.
