We as Model Railroaders have a tendency to love locomotives. This is pretty understandable, seeing that without loco’s, our trains would just be big pieces of metal rusting on tracks. However, we should not neglect our carriages, because they deserve our unconditioned love as well. Thankfully Leuchtstein at 1000steine has understood this as no other and has build the iconic Einheitswagen I from the Rhätische Bahn, the well-known narrow gauge railway in Switzerland.
Also note the great greebling for the wheelsets, and the Nice Parts Usage (NPU) for using a Plate Modified 1×2 with Racers Car Grille on the ends of the car.
Leuchtstein tells us the stickers are made with a Brother P-Touch labelwriter, due to this having the possibility to print white on transparent. Interesting to know if you don’t want to go to a printing store! The results are a bit more grainy then a print store, but overall the effect is really nice.
Some additional information for the number-lovers: The carriage is 8 wide, 41 long and build in 1:42, this due to the fact that RhB is a narrow gauge railway and thus a different scale has been used compared to regular 1435 mm. Overall some 950 parts were used.
