Trams must have one of the most requested items through the years .... but did anybody actaully think there would be an injected plastic model of one? I started to believe ... or hope ... when MiniArt released so many road sections with tram lines. At long last. Every dio builders´ dream object. I can imagine we will be seeing a lot of this kit in the years to come.

I hope we also see some figures for it.. in the way of a driver/conductor and a variety of seated passengers... hopefully by Miniart themselves

As most trams are of a similar design I expect the after market will be supplying alternate finishes for this kit and then the scratch builders will be busy as well.

This is so annoying..... Everytime I decide I don't need any more kits another company comes around the block with an item that is a total must have.


That about says it....

I guess I've found it ... or at least a very close match ! (to say the truth, I've found Richard Avezaat's post about it on ML )



It's a German tram car built in 1913 (!) by MAN/SSW. The one above has been restored by the Nurnberg tram museum (Triebwagen 641). It was used there until 1966... :

Yeah there really is not a single way that this would not end up in my collection.

I like how the underside is completely detailed, you could display it in a 'Fall of Berlin" type diorama on its side.

Oh c'mon Bill! Tell us how you REALLY feel!
I'll get one for sure.They're pretty sizable in 1/35. I'm guessing from the ones you could ride in S.F. not too long ago. I think Warriors had a resin kit out some years back. Pricey then also, but the only game in town.
Cheers!(for the Muni)

It's not the same, but it reminds me of a Dutch tram car used in Amsterdam :

Each city has their own tram design, let the experten talk about wich city does this one belongs

It realy doesn't look like a lisboeta tram



They look more square and short, it`s more a central europe design

The Arnhem ones look different too
