Thanks Ben and Arnold

I'm assuming the hatches can be replaced easily? (ie, they're not moulded
on).

I agree that for the price I would expect better accuracy. However at the
end of the day, if the other details are correct it would still be the best
starting point for an R-40-14.

David Ball asked:
"What is the quality/accuracy of the Marklin/Trix R-40-14's like?"

Arnold van Heyst answered:
"This reeferset is a nice one to have. Very good detail, although the
roofwalk is a bit shorter than it should be."

The running board discrepancy is minor compared to the ice hatches,
which are grossly undersized. This is inexcusable for a $32.00 model,
particularly when $5 Athearn reefers get the hatch size correct (if
not the hardware).
