Today I visited Japanese paper model retailer kamimokei.com. There this pretty Koppel attracted my attention.
To tell the truth, I have been train fan since I was kid. My favorite train is tiny narrow gauge steam locomotives.
(Attached picture shows my collection of mainly HO gauge model).
Koppel is popular imported locomotive together with U.S. Baldwin, which was used for logging narrow gauge line.
On the other hand Koppel was used at many narrow gauge lines because of high quality yet reasonable price.
I, of course, bought it and decided to start building.
This kit seems to have relatively small number of parts consists of 9 pages of A4 paper. Today just glued one sheet on which framers are printed onto thick card board.
