EF 65 Asakaze H0
Very advisable model. Functional with batteries. It´s possible to transform it to circulate over metallic H0 tracks, but this requires a bit of skill. The kit includes the parts necessary to reproduce a EF 65- 1000 locomotive in H0 scale. Metal housing for RE 280 motor and metal wheels too. Gears and contact sockets for 4 AA batteries. Flexible plastic pantographs, not retractable, but very resistant. Two Fleischmann type hooks. Set of plastic tracks to complete an oval. Motor and batteries are not included. The detail is very correct, only the red lights are a little bit oversized but it can be easily solved. It reproduces the 1000 series so that you can reproduce a JRF locomotive or a passenger train locomotive. It is necessary to reduce the windshield forniture from get more realism, that´s nothing important. Decals are on adhesive paper, not in the usual water type. Encourage yourself with this and with the Blue Train cars available too on this website.
