There is a new Z-scale kit on the market... a Japanese ED17 electric locomotive. B) The kit is manufactured by World Kougei.

ED17 kit

Sorry... no English link available. :unsure:

I recently picked up one of these kits. The body is pre-assembled. All the instructions are in Japanese. Each truck has it's own motor! :woohoo:

They are now available from Hobby Search...

Hobby Search

Since I am in Japan, I cannot access the English pages of Hobby Search. I believe Hobby Search has English web-pages and can ship world-wide.






For those folkZ that want a kit, but do not want to order from Hobby Search... I am willing to get the kits for you. ;) PLEASE NOTE! The instructions are in Japanese. :S Sorry, but... I cannot provide translation services for the instructions. Please contact me directly if you are interested in a kit. Kits will cost about US$90.00, plus postage. I will ship world-wide. :laugh: As for the same as the Rokuhan track orders, I do not make a profit from getting this for you. :blush:

Joe, Since I have a Japanese ISP... even if I select your link to the Enlish page, I am automatically redirected to the Japanese pages. :S

I was on the reservation list. I was able to order three (I wish I had ordered more). As soon as I posted this thread, I tried to go back and order more... but, as you now know, it seems they are sold out again. :(

I'm still not sure if my order will be filled. I have a confirmation e-mail, but I'm waiting on payment details. :blink:

Of the three I ordered... one is for me and the other two have already been snatched up. As soon as I can order more... I will do so.

Folks... if you are interested in these, please send me your orders... so, I can know how many to order next time the window opens up. ;)

I've just learned that this kit is completely sold out :blink: ... not just at Hobby Search, but also at the World Kougei web-site. Currently, there are no plans to make more. :( For the folks that got one... consider yourself lucky! B)

I REALLY NEED one of these kits. If someone happened to get more than they need or want, or if for some other reason you'd like to sell one, I'd be MORE than interested (at a nice profit to you I might add)!!! Please contact me through here or write me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
