Faller B-255

I understand parts from this model kit are used on the studio scale Shado Mobile. Seems Faller made more than one type of B-255. Hopefully the photo' may help anyone building a Shado Mobile decide if this is the correct B-255 - it looks to be.

Model is unstarted with 4 parts detached from the sprues.

£15 + 2.75 1st class recorded postage (only to a United Kingdom address).

Paypal or a United Kingdom cheque (funds to clear before postage).

Thank you for taking a look.

The 'Shado Mobile' B-255 Faller kit is actually a pair of small chalets - not the kit above.

Hi Mark !

Could you tell us if the pair or one of them
is somewhere on the following picture :




If not, do you have any picture available for us,
those Shado Mobile parts are so hard to find.

Thanks for your help

Going by the box art (which is at a different angle to the above) I would say the kit appears to comprise of the very centre and top right corner buildings.
The door of the top right building is the side vent on the main body, only one in the kit so you need two kits or to cast it. Also only one piece for the headlight frame.
You might only need the top right building, most of the parts seem to be on that one but I can't see where the piece for the thin front grill actually goes on the model kit. The parts are numbered on the instructions but not on the sprues!!

Mark42: Thanks for the info'. I would have hated to have sold a kit to someone that turned out to be wrong. I blame Faller for releasing kits with the same number :)

Based on Mark42's information the above is kit is withdrawn from sale here.

Thanks for your reply, i think i'm going crazy, :wtf:
I found at least 4 different Faller B-255 kits on the net today.
I've been looking for that kit for more than a year, and
i didn't really know what i was looking for, until now.

I did my homework and i still need your help Mark !

Here is the picture again, with buildings (A+B) and C





I found another picture of the (A+B) chalets,
with a view of the hidden sides :



Please, correct me if i'm wrong, part 'D' is the thin front grill,
part 'E' is a side vent and part 'F' could be the headlight frame ?

Here is a close-up picture of a building similar to 'C' building
seen on the first picture :



Part 'G' is also a side vent i think.

On your website, i see two parts missing from my 3 pictures above,

- The side-lights frames on each side of the shado mobile chin.

- The square part located on the same side as the 2 vents,
next to both white stripes.

Could you tell me if those two missing parts are from the (A+B) kit
or the 'C' building ?

Thanks fro your help, i learned a lot today ! :lol:

The close-up picture is the same building as C
A-B is not the one I have but clearly shares the same parts as C
I'm pretty sure that this has all been mentioned in a previous 'Mobile' thread somewhere on this forum.
