Piko today started shipping the heavy German Steam Locomotive BR 95.
It was scheduled to ship in 2nd quarter 2018 and as usual, contrary to most other G Scale manufacturers, they met the date.
It always amazes me that Piko can afford all this tooling over the years to continue to introduce real completely new products where other G Scale manufacturers are struggling just to introduce the odd one - and pretty much never on time.

The Piko model was shown today for the first time and already the criticism is rolling in:
"Piko "forgot" to replicate the boiler straps of the loco.
I had to look at the prototype picture twice to even figure out what the criticism was about. To save you the trouble I marked the boiler straps that are missing on the model in the image below.
I wonder what happened to the 10 foot rule - do people dig out their magnifying glas now-a-days when it comes to G Scale?
