It is nice looking, but at 49.95 € (= $71.88 from the XE currency website) that is a very expensive kit. Can't even begin to imagine what it'd cost with shipping. As I remember, shipping from German is really expensive.

I know I won't be getting one!!!!

But one point - it shows that there are a lot of potential vehicles/machines that could have a market in the US and Europe.

In all fairness though, no one state side will step to the plate and make anything. If the German companies will, I'll bite, just to have some variety. I sure wish they'd make some smaller, lumber yard-type material handlers though.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

I don't think shipping would be too expensive. Those are photo etched pieces and would fit in an envelope. I received two shipments from other German companies that offer photo etched pieces and the came in those yellow padded envelopes for less than $10 shipping.

Just to follow up here on my comment about price and sirenwerks comment about stepping up to the plate...

Seems the manufacturer found our other thread and is offering for a limited time pricing of $1 = 1$€ and a $8 shipping price.

Talk about making a gesture of good faith. (in reference to another thread) you just gotta love them small manufacturers!
