[Actual vehicle guide]
--The JNR Kiha 20 series diesel car is a general type diesel car developed by the Japanese National Railways in 1957. It is the base Kiha 20 type for both cabs, Kiha 25 type for one cab, Kiha 22 type for cold resistance, and mountains. It was developed according to the application such as Kiha 52 type of specifications.
――By 1966, a total of 1126 cars were manufactured, and they were widely used in various parts of Japan.
――The Kiha 20 series was also improved with the 0th generation, the 200th generation with improved windows, and the 500th generation with minor changes, and was active all over the country except Hokkaido, and was a local line vehicle representing JNR.
――Even after privatization, it was inherited by each company, but due to changes in needs due to the abolition of local lines and improvement of other vehicle performance, all cars were retired from the JR line in 1993.
――However, thanks to the success of the vehicles transferred to private railways and the same type of vehicles that are diverted from the design, you can still feel their male appearance.
――We have commercialized the [Kiha 20 type diesel railcar], which was active on local lines nationwide during the JNR era, with PLUM's 1/80 scale plastic kit series, which is precise down to the floor.
-The body is reproduced with a molding color that imaged the metropolitan area color (red No. 5) familiar with tarako color. You can enjoy it as it is or repaint it with your favorite color.
――The window glass has a gimmick that allows you to choose the open state in two stages, which is perfect for uncooled local lines.
――Under the floor, the DMH17 engine and other devices are lined up in a row, and the dolly also precisely models the mechanism such as the swing pillow.
――You can choose from multiple headlights and snowplows that have changed depending on the region.
――The Kominato Railway Kiha 200's popular mechanism that can be easily motorized has been adopted this time as well, and the kit has been completed so that you can thoroughly enjoy it from one car.
――Please enjoy from the shortest one car to the long express operation that reproduces Kiha 20s and other types of JNR diesel railcars in combination to your liking!
