Faller 2018 New Items

Terry Smith

TERRY SMITH looks at what is due for release in 2018 from Faller.

Here are some of the highlights from the Faller range this year. You can see the full release programme here

HO/OO Container Bridge-crane

Faller New Items 2018

Without doubt the big news and taking pride of place on the Faller stand at this year’s Nurnberg Toy Fair was Faller's HO scale Container Bridge-crane, which is part number FA120290. While plastic kits of container cranes have been done before, no-one has attempted to do one on quite such a large scale. Based on the real crane at the DB container port at Weil am Rhine, it builds up to be a very large and impressive structure. The kit crane be built in various forms but in its largest configuration measures 654mm x 353mm x 268mm (25.7" x 13.9" x 10.6"). While the bridge can be manually operated, a full motorisation kit will be available by the time the model is released later in the year. With a change of logo this could be used on a Modern Image UK-based layout and looks like the cranes seen at Southampton and Felixstowe as well as at other ports around the coast.

HO/OO UPS Logistics Hall

Faller New Items 2018

Although not a new moulding (this kit has been available before as a DHL Depot) it takes on a fresh face as a UPS version under part number FA130785. Being a global brand, this versatile kit can find its way onto any layout but again is especially suitable for inclusion on a UK. It takes up a space of 376mm x 200mm x 91mm (14.8" x 7.9" x 3.6").

An N Scale version of this kit will also be available during 2018.

Small but useful HO/OO models

Faller New Items 2018

This bunch of kits are the sort of models that can really set the scene on a modern layout. The Snack Bar (FA130130) is the type of structure that can pop up anywhere there is a need for a bacon roll and a cuppa, such as on industrial estates or as a roadside café.

The Container based portaloos (FA130131) could be used in conjunction with the Snack bar but again is a very versatile kit, as are the Offices (FA130132) and the stacked Site Office (FA130133). While all these are great for a construction site scene they can also be used in many other locations with modern day railway yards being an obvious choice.

HO/OO Cathedral

Faller New Items 2018

Two years ago, Faller released their wonderfully detailed HO Monastery kit. This was a limited edition model that wowed the modelling press with its detail and sheer size. In 2018 Faller are releasing part of that impressive kit as a Cathedral. The Cathedral (FA130598) retains many of the features of the original kit including the ornate bell tower and the gothic buttresses. This structure will look at home on both continental and UK layouts of all periods.

To coincide with its mid-year release, Faller are to also introduce a Church Decoration set FA180346. This includes everything you need to kit out the inside of the Cathedral such as pews, pulpit, font and alter, and of course can be used inside any other HO/OO Church kit.

N Monastery

Faller New Items 2018

For 2018 Faller have released an N Scale Monastery kit, and this impressive building could fill a space on any layout. This model is styled is in late Gothic architecture and would make an ideal corner filler.
