JP Shinkansen 0 Series Bullet Train

This is my first attempt at the iconic blue and white Japanese 0 series 'Bullet Train'

First put into service on 1st October 1964, the bullet train became the icon for high speed travel.
In 2014, the 0 series will be 50 years old. Lets celebrate this engineering masterpiece in style and see if we can get a Lego replica into production,

I have modeled this is LDD and yet to build it out of real Lego.

Please support this if you like it.

Each coach has 2 opening doors at one end.

shared bogie system with wheel guards.
Need to build this in real life to see if wheel guards limit the turning circle.
