Kato will make the scale model of Series 485-200, the first version of the electric rice cooker by nickname.
It is the model which emerged in 1972 with the top car equipped with a gangway door and the air conditioner changed to floor installation model AU71A in order to accommodate more passengers. Since 1976, the train combining limited expresses gKAMOMEh and gMIDORIh started the service between Hakata and Nagasaki/Sasebo. gMIDORIh was much talked about as the then shortest limited express train just consisting of 4 carriages.

By combining the 6-car basic set with those to be released simultaneously such as #10-1129 Series 485 Late Stage 2-Car Add-On Set, #4556 SAHA 481 Early or #4570 SARO 481 you make and enjoy former famous limited expresses such as gYAMABIKOh, gRAICHOh or gNICHIRINh as well as the combination of gKAMOMEh and gMIDORIh.
