Your model is a highly detailed and beautifully crafted rendition of Japan’s classic standardised modern engine. Made by Japanese National Railways (JNR) from 1937 to 1953, the “”Noble Lady”” was built as an improvement on the earlier Class C55 locomotives. Each high-quality component has been superbly recreated to the original spec by De Agostini.

This incredibly detailed 1:24 scale model of the C57 Steam Locomotive is available to build in pay-as-you-build or full kit option, complete with a short length of track and base on which to display it. Mainly constructed from solid brass sheet and tube with a black finish, all the moving mechanical parts are made of precision die-cast white metal. The completed model is 860mm long (including the tender) and weighs over 10kg. The model includes working lights and wheels, as well as authentic whistle and steam sound effects.

We provide clear step-by-step instructions to show you how to assemble and finish the parts – every step of the way. Even if you’ve never tried this type of project before, you’ll be able to put your C57 steam locomotive model together in easy stages, learning the skills as you go.
