G.E. Exhaust Stack U-Boat Thru Dash 7
Item: HTD-6000


One of Hi-Tech Details’ many diesel details is this injection-molded set of G.E. exhaust stack for U-boats and Dash 7 locomotives.

Introduction
Model railroading is fun and for many of us part of that fun modeling a particular prototype, even during a specific time. Railroads and equipment manufacturers have given us a bewildering number of modifications to model. These are often unique and not economical for model makers to mass produce. Riding to the rescue are model makers like Hi-Tech Details!

Hi-Tech Details of Ukiah, California, have been around for a while supplying the HO market with innovative details sets. They market highly detailed accessories for correcting, scratchbuilding, and modifying model railroad locomotives and cars. In addition, Hi-Tech Details (HTD) also produces model kits of complete cars, and line side items.

Hi-Tech Details also makes models and accessories for N and O scale.

Hi-Tech Details website is hi-tech, too! Many of their sets and kits feature click-to-access how-to features and instructions.

G.E. Exhaust Stack U-Boat Thru Dash 7

HTD currently lists 11 diesel detail sets on their site. This set arrives packed in a plastic bag stapled to HTD’s vivid fuchsia and black card label. This set allows you to model any G.E. U-boat from the U-25 through the Dash 7. Four sprues hosting four smooth light gray styrene parts build the stack. All are crisply molded without flash, visible ejector marks, seam lines or sink marks. However, the sprue attachments are rather hefty.

Tying Up
Modelers who want a particular U-boat can now modify their model with this stack. The parts feature excellent molding and detail. Recommended.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here – on RailRoadModeling.
SUMMARY
Highs: Excellent molding and detail.
Lows: Large sprue attachments to cut the parts from.
Verdict: This set allows you to model any G.E. U-boat from the U-25 through the Dash 7.
