Finished models or kits?

This one is based on a kit:



See here: 1:200 airport tug

Well I prefer finished models, but I guess I could take a shot on kits. I was looking more for cargo loaders, fuel trucks, etc.

Outside of Herpa's 1:200 GSE, there seems to be precious little. Even Herpa's look rather 'toy-like' with their little clear windows. As an alternative, I know some collectors have resorted to model railway scale vehicles at 1:160 or better still, 1:220, which is pretty rare.

Fuel trucks and buses may be found at the above scales pre-built. Try Walthers [ HERE ], the giant model railway online retailer in the U.S.

Myself, I would prefer a pressure refueller such as the one in the photo below. Could you image all that dishy detail and how fantastic it would look alongside a slick intercontinental diecast airliner? Mmmmmm! (Maybe Mr. EMD F7A would like a new resin kit project, yes???)

PHOTO: Oh yeah, I could use one of THOSE for sure!

Nice pre-built Citaro buses can be found here (1:160 & 25€ min):
--> Rietze Automodelle GmbH & Co. KG

REALLY Nice white metal kits for baggage tractors & carts in 1:200:
--> Model Supplies Limited | Aircraft and Bagage handling vehicles - Scale 1/200
5 carts included . . . your choice of loaded or unloaded.

My favourite (and only) piece of GSE that I feel worthy of being in my display still is the Goldhofer tug I obtained as a kit from fellow member EMD F7A and built myself. A lovely challenge to get right at that scale, but as shown on the photo below, most certainly worth the effort, and a superb companion for my GJ Air France 777-228ER! Many on other forums have asked me if it is diecast, but no . . . it comes as translucent resin, as seen in the lower of the two photos. You can read the 'build' thread [ HERE ].

Hm...

If I assume a length of about 6 meters, the model would be 3 cm long (or 1.1811023 inches ). That is pretty small!


While the vehicle itself is no problem to do, the contraption on top of it is.

Constructing everything in virtual form is easy, but rapid prototyping is still too imprecise for these details to render (yet?).
That's only practicable by using steel wire and still a pain to do. I don't think that's fun to build. Herpa could pull it off by using injection molding and enlarged details (maybe a set with several GSE).

On the other hand I am intrigued now. Maybe a simplified version might do it. After all, it's just about 1.1811023 inches long (or 3 cm ).

Cheerio
Chris

And I agree with upkeep, the pressure refueller would look great alongside a intercontinential airliner!!! Hopefully they come out with something simillar soon!

I'd think a cargo loader would be relatively easy to create in 1:200. I believe Gemini made one in 1:400.

Yeah, you'd think if they can do it in 1:400 then they can do it in 1:200!

For my own challenge I thought I'd give it a go with the fuel truck: (Not done yet...) Any thoughts? I know its not very good

That's what I thought, should have been sometime around November (at least that's what I heard)

I thought it was supposed to be around January/February 2011. Oh well . . . matters not, as I suppose GJ has given up on the idea considering there have not even been any pre-production images. BTW: Your refuelling device is making interesting progress.
