Blaubar Too bad that the 52 kits all suck.

Alec K I am guessing that the 1:72 scale HobbyBoss kit is equally off. I am not a train guy, but wonder if there were significant productifon variations that could explain the Trumpeter version? Or did they just guess their way through the design process?

Blaubar Alec, no clue about the 1/72 one as I don't own it, but from what I have seen, yes, same issues. They mixed plate and bar frame design features, added tons of post-war stuff and also the overall frame is wrong either way. (Bar and plate frame are two different steam engine frame types, only approx 300 52s had the bar, whereas some 6000+ had the plate frame). They just copied post war engines I assume... and they were modified so vastly....that many have nothing in common with an original 52. i got a huge flickr album with all the research and the kit faults and flaws. For the k4t30 tender they must have used a Turkish modified one amongst others as a model... they are the only tenders to have the way too wide rear box that trumpeter added afaik. The model as it is in the box, was under no circumstances any of the different versions produced. (Still, it is a nice OOB steam locomotive, but no 52) <- though that is rivet counting^^

Alec K Thanks for the explanation, much appreciated. Is there a wartime BR-52 in existence?
