After the 2013 Spur1 meeting in Sinsheim, I reported on July 7, 2013 about Wilgro models that were offered at Wyko-Echtdampf. Among the heavily patinated models were also two worth seeing half-assembled kits of the class 86.

According to the comments, the models created by Mr. Groß in this condition were suitable to enrich the respective scene as rusty models on the siding or on a scrap yard.

The following report by Hans and Walter Ziegler shows that there is another way and that the two torsos do not have to eke out an existence as lifeless scrap.
