    Just hoping that someone may ...

    1. have this kit put away somewhere and aren't going to build it.
    2. Have built version (in good condition) that they don't want.
    3. Know of a shop that may have stocks on their dusty back shelves.

    It is an old Kibri kit (7132), of a hi-rise hotel, commercial building or apartment block. I have one already on 'Setagaya' (see thread below) and could use several more !!! It can be seen just to the left of the bronze skysraper in all photos.

    I am also looking for Faller 2291 & 2292 (small apartment houses) as well as Vollmer 7721, 7722, 7727 & 7729. They are all multi story, modern office/apartment buildings with shops on the ground floor.

    Thanks,
    Doug Coster.

    PS - here is a pic of Kibri 7132 ...

    Hi Doug, Check with Jay Cohen.

    Jay@JaysTrains.com

    www.jaystrains.com

    He sorta specializes in hard to find out of production model kits.

    I have purchased from him before and was very satisfied with what I received. Even if he does not have what you are looking for he may can give you some leads.

    Roger Hartmann and his wife own the place, email Roger with your request. He has literally thousands of European kits, many are not even in his store, so you have to ask! It is a a paradise for those of us who model European trains. He has tons of stuff like old Airfix kits and shelf after shelf of Kibri, Heljan, Vollmer, Faller, etc.

    Happy Hunting!

    Thanks to the two guyes who replied so far, however a terse message from Jays tells me that they do not sell N scale, and I haven't heard from the other place yet, however it looks like they specialize in large scale stuff ....

    Doug, I would say be patient with Roger Hartmann, he has a lot of stuff going on, they have about ten businesses going up there! He and his wife are really nice people. I was up there last fall and spent a LONG time talking to him, and next time I am up there have an invitation to see his OTHER collection of stuff for sale, their store is huge but they have even more at their house I guess. So hang in there and see if they can do it.

    Might also try ebay.de?

    Still nothing - I would expect that someone who wants to do business would not take a week to reply to an enquiry ....

    I know this is an old post but I have just bought four of these kibri kits off Ebay. I've already ripped apart two of them and have started putting them together.

    Here's some photos of the progress. By the end it will be about 36 to 38 stories tall. I'm building a huge N scale City. I'm also building a huge 40's style skyscraper right now too. I've got about 200 buildings in my city so far.
