Specific Item Information: Odakyu Type 1000 Additional Four Car Formation Set can be added (Greenmax 30509)
Prototype Information: The Odakyu 1000 series (小田急1000形 Odakyū 1000-gata) is a commuter electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the private railway operator Odakyu Electric Railway in the Tokyo area of Japan. Built between 1987 and 1993, the first train entered service in March 1988. Passenger accommodation consists of longitudinal bench seating throughout.
From 2014, 160 out of the operational fleet of 196 1000 series cars are scheduled to undergo a programme of life-extension refurbishment. The refurbishment will include the replacement of the existing traction motors with new 190 kW AC traction motors, silicon carbide inverter traction control, and new air-conditioning units with 8% higher capacity. The interiors will also be completely refurbished with LED lighting, LCD passenger information displays above the doorways, and new moquette seat covers.
The Odakyu Electric Railway forms the core of the Odakyu Group, which comprises 101 companies (as of July 14, 2017) and includes the Enoshima Electric Railway, Hakone Tozan Railway, Odakyu Bus, Odakyu Department Store, and Hyatt Regency Tokyo hotel.
Green Max kits are usually simple to build, but painting and finishing requires careful attention, the catalogue includes a full manual for assembly, painting and finishing, albeit only in Japanese, the many photographs make it clearly understandable. Most kits can be build in several varieties, the multiple-unit train models in particular, so you have the choice of several prototypes. This is why the bogies and pantographs (and the eventual power unit) are NOT included in the kits, they vary with the choice of prototype and would otherwise make the kits more expensive.
The Green Max rolling stock range is extensive and stands clearly out from the ranges by Kato and Tomix. Green Max makes mainly models of the 1950's and 1960's, many of an even earlier age and Green Max has a large range of trains used by the many private railways of Japan. As mentioned above it is often possible to choose from more than one model when assembling the kit. It is best to decide before you buy the kit, the catalogue gives you the information needed, only then you can order the right bogies and pantographs. Different front-ends and possibly sides are included in the kit.
