A 1:87 train model has been released with attractive pricing. There are two versions to choose from. The SMT (Shanghai Maglev Train) Transrapid, and the Transrapid 08 with DB (Deutsche Bahn) livery.
The top maglev model train is the one with the Shanghai Transrapid Maglev livery, and on the bottom, you can see the Deutsche Bahn version with a red stripe. Both models are otherwise identical, the only difference is the colors and the sticker: SMT / DB.
Shanghai Transrapid Maglev
Transrapid 08 maglev model with the doors closed. There is a slider to open the doors on both sides and take a sneaky look at the not so detailed, but still interesting interior.
Transrapid 08 maglev model with the doors open. As you can see it has wheels, and it does not levitate, but it makes for a really nice decoration or a toy for kids.
