OK. Yes they did... but only slightly. Good news to all the Fleischmann owners: Fleischmanns PWG pr 14 is still a challanger.
The Brawa has better details. (Fleischmann in DB livery on the left.) The Brawa version looks more realistic. They offer some really fine parts like the steps and the windows. Printings are fine with both models. On the axels Brawa has the plus. Some parts on the Fleischmann roof are toy-like. Dimensions/sizing on both modells are still outstanding.Would give the Brawa version 10 out of ten points but the Flescmmann PWG will be credited with 8/10.
Here ist the Brawa underframe. I would say highly detailed.
In comparison the Fleischmann version. Only few details and...you will need RP 25 wheels as I installed. Otherwise the vehicle ist too high if running with other cars.
Would recommend the Brawa version of the Prussian designed PWG (14) very much. A really welcomed addition to my rolling stock.
