Kato will make a scale model of the electric locomotive EF81 95 Rainbow Color which can be combined with various trains.
EF81 95 emerged in 1987 along with EF65 1019 in the special paint scheme as a locomotive dedicated to draw European style passenger train “Super Express Rainbow”. The locomotives were later used not only for the passenger train but also for sleeper expresses “Hokutosei (North Star)”, “Akebono (Dawn)” and other extra trains and freight trains.
The locomotive attracted attention for the logo “EF81” painted large on the sides.
The popular EF81 95 rainbow coating machine is now available on the KATO HO gauge. At the same time, you can set upgrade parts such as hand pickpockets according to the body color to improve the details of each part, and you can also enjoy reproducing the appearance of your favorite era.
