To launch the Jouef brand on the German market, the decision was done to produce electric locomotives E.110/139/140/182 DB scale models.
The electric locomotives E.182 DB was also visible in France. The electric locomotive E.140 DB was discarded as it was already reproduced by many others models train makers.
If the bogies are identical for the 3 series E.110/139/182 DB locomotives, the locomotives E.110/139 DB shared the same body but the body of the E.182 DB has specific roof equipments. Taking account of the body of 3 prototype locomotives E.182 DB, the 182.011 DB had less modifications on the body.
If the German press raised this E.182 DB scale model not reproduced yet by others manufacturers, public criticism were put on the inaccurate roof equipment. Several years after, Jouef re-issued this model with modified specific roof equipment and fitted Sommerfeldt pantographs on it, and then, it became one of the first Jouef success in Germany. To compensate the mechanics weakness of the Jouef model, many German enthusiasts changed it with a Märklin or Roco mechanics.
