Traction Scale Models has teamed up again with Transit Classics to produce our first New Zealand model. We are proud to introduce a 1:43 model of an Auckland 1929 “Big Semi-Steel” tram.
Greg King from Transit Classics has pulled the official plans from his extensive archives to produce the most accurate model possible.
What’s included in the Kit
The kit includes all the parts required to build a static model for display.
The parts in this kit are all 3D printed in resin.
Also included in the kit are non-functional display trolley poles made up of printed spring base and printed wheel with brass rod for the pole.
This model is designed to be powered with a Steam Era Black Beetle drive.
Decals and paints are not included but I can direct you to the appropriate local supplier for these.
Power Mechanism – The model is designed to take the excellent “Black Beetle” power and trailer trucks. These can be ordered direct from “Steam Era” http://www.steameramodels.com/ but, if you want larger wheels (33” spoked wheels for the Auckland car and Adelaide H for example) you will need to get in touch with Greg King at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Decals can be purchased from Dean Filgate at email@example.com
