60 year Roco loco in 1:1 is here

Roco has finally unveiled its official 60th anniversary HO locomotive, with a real prototype, an Austrian class 1116 Taurus in a special design by noted Austrian graphic designer Gudrun Geiblinger.

The design, largely in blue and orange, Roco's traditional colors, includes large versions of both the current and earlier Roco logos as well as an image of an Austrian 4010 train set, one of Roco's signature models in recent years.

First images can be seen here:

(So far -- as of July 1, 2020 -- this page on the Roco factory site is available only in German.)

The HO model will not be officially available until later this year, but the photos at the above link do show a pre-production model as well as the full-size prototype.

So, what do you think? If you are a fan/collector of Roco, do you plan to get one of these models?
