MicroAce’s new Shinkansen set

MicroAce have released pictures of their new 200 series Shinkansen set, and I think it is a beauty 😀

This is a model of set K47 which was repainted in may 2007 the original Tohoku Shinkansen colours of white/green to commemorate the 25th anniversay of the opening of the Tohoku Shinkansen in 1982.

As you may be aware, there are now none of the original type 200 series running on the Tohoku Shinkansen (only the remodelled versions from 1999), and this colour scheme suits them perfectly. I wish they would repaint them all this way before their projected retirement in 2013.

 This is the same set that Microace released in the white/blue colour scheme, so technically you cannot have both models and run them together 😆
