Detailing Set For PIKO TEE offers several detailing sets for locomotives from PIKO and LGB. If I am not mistaken, Grootspoor originally did the design of those and later cooperated with Massoth for the distribution.

A new offering is a detailing set for the PIKO TEE diesel multiple unit train. This set of detailing parts contains all the parts you need for the decoration of both power car cabins. All parts are plastic, and come in white. Looking at the pictures, it seems the parts are 3D printed. detailing set for PIKO TEE detailing set for PIKO TEE

The detailing sets is available for € 259,95. Link:

10% Price Increase KISS Modellbahnen

KISS Modellbahnen announced there will be a 10% price increase on their products at 1 July 2015. The increase does not apply to already ordered products. KISS states that, as a result of the weak Euro, the German company experiences higher production costs as they cooperate with international partners (e.g. Asia).
