The emerald green E5 Shinkansen (bullet train) entered service in 2011, offering high speed service between metropolitan Tokyo and Shin Aomori in the northernmost tip of Japan. With a top speed of 320 kph (nearly 200mph), it has earned the nickname “Hayabusa” (Falcon). Being one of the newest bullet trains in service, it’s filled with cutting-edge technology to ensure that it is both environmentally friendly as well as quiet and smooth despite its high speed – with its unique aerodynamic design, fully enclosed and skirted trucks, high pantograph covers to reduce noise and a counterbalanced suspension that tilts and sways in curves to maintain a smooth ride.

 

• This release will allow modelers to create the full 10 car consist by combining all three available car sets.

• Fitted with the latest Kato truck-drive mechanism, this model will easily achieve the scale speed of 320 kph

• The different passenger cars will have uniquely molded interiors to accurately model the different types

• The train will have a built-in suspension system that, like the prototype, will allow the car bodies to tilt and sway while running through curves.

• The lead car will have an opening nose, like the prototype, allowing the E5 “Hayabusa” to couple together to a planned HO E6 “Super Komachi” Shinkansen in the future.

• Will be able to navigate R370 Curves.
