RAILNSCALE - Trabant 601

Hi folks!

New: Trabant 601!
The Trabant 601 (1964-1990) is a further development of the Trabant P50 and, in addition to a slightly modernized body, had a lot of old technology on board, such as the two-stroke engine. Because the government offered hardly any room for further developments, the Trabant 601 fell further and further behind. In the GDR, however, this was the most accessible car. In the end, almost 3 million copies were built. The models shown are accurate replicas of the Trabant 601 as it was built between 1980 and 1990. Various kits are available, also with the boot lid or hood open.
The model consists of two unpainted parts. This makes it possible to paint the model in a good way or to adjust it if necessary.
The following kits are available:

N2161 – Trabant 601 Limousine 



N2162 – Trabant 601 Universal 



N2163 – Trabant 601 Limousine with opened trunk lid



N2164 – Trabant 601 Universal with opened hood

N2661 - SET Holiday fun!



Camping was very popular in the GDR. In addition to the well-known Trabant 601, the roof tent was a common solution for simple and comfortable camping. In this SET a couple appears to be having a lot of fun in the tent. This SET is a happy accessory on your model railway.
The model consists of three unpainted parts. This makes it possible to paint the model in a good way or to adjust it if necessary. Superglue is recommended.

Ageing is inevitable - maturity is optional.

. . . yes the bluish smoke of a 2-stroke engine, and the unusual engine sound. My uncle owned a white 601S.
. . . 42 . . .

Hi!

I just made a small video on the Trabant 601: https://fb.watch/dSHmdJ2V2H/
It's in German, but you can enjoy the 2 stroke engine noise on the background of such car. And you'll see the RAILNSCALE kits in 360 degrees!

And as mentioned all Trabants are also available in TT-scale (1:120).
Learn more about the Trabant 601 here: https://railnscale.com/2022/06/23/trabant-601/

With kind regards,
Maurice
