The mysterious 1/144 Dora has appeared on the FUJIMI site as a new item!!!
maybe this will be the one that makes it into the HELLER box!?
now, according to www.XE.com ￥8,400 = £41GBP or $72USD or 60 Euros!
there is a report (in Japanese) with pictures on el-bassers site (he has given persmiion for use of his dora photo) at the following location: http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/el_basser
it would appear with some care and thought it IS possible to get the dora to run on N-Gauge tracks!
this is not to be confused with the METAL Troops Version also distributed by FUJIMI in japan
