Even after 50 years - thanks to their
timeless appearance - the legendary cult locomotives of the BR 103 series are
among the visual highlights on German railway lines and attract a lot of
attention. This is a newly-tooled model of this iconic engine for the TEE and
IC service of the DB. In showing the original prototypical skirts, scissor
pantographs, and red/beige paint in the short version, PIKO is fulfilling the
heart’s desire of many G-scale operators and lovers of attractive locomotives.
As the first model of this class in G-Scale, the PIKO BR 103 distinguishes
itself by replicating all the external appearance characteristics of its
prototype. The finely painted and printed model impresses with maximum reliability,
robustness, ball-bearing axles, chrome-plated wheels and directional lighting.
The cab includes an engineer figure and control stand.
To emphasize further, there are many
individually applied details such as hand grabs and windshield wipers. In addition
the BR 103 from PIKO also has high pulling power and excellent driving
characteristics. The model is prepared for easy installation of a digital
decoder and sound system, as well as engine compartment lighting.
