Revell Big Boy Locomotive Plastic Model Kit 1:87

Recreate this iconic train with the Revell Big Boy Locomotive Plastic Model Kit.

The American Big Boys are some of the longest and largest steam locomotives ever built anywhere in the world. During the late thirties Union Pacific often used auxiliary engines to haul trains from Ogden, Utah up a steep pass to Wasatch. U.P. wished to simplify this system and instructed their own development department to design a new locomotive capable of hauling a 3,600 ton train (max 4,200 tons) up the steep pass.

The 25 Big Boy locomotives were built in 2 groups. The first group, called the Class 1, was built from 1941. The second, Class 2, was built in 1944. The last goods train was hauled by a Big Boy loco in July 1959. Most Big Boys were retired from service in 1961. 

This kit requires paint and glue to complete. Decals are included for two Union Pacific versions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great detail and well constructed! I bought this a gift and the recipient was delighted with it. It has great detail, well constructed and I am sure it will give hours of pleasure putting it all together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Big Boy Revell Locomotive kit A little expensive, but arn't they all nowadays. Only just started but hopefully looking like a nice model. Would have rated it higher but for the fact that had to buy 2 tubes of glue. Hope it is enough and guess at the paints as no info on colours before you open the kit. Obviously not able to do that in the store.
