Forest distillery

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

That's lovely - well done. Could you post a picture of the fiddle yard, please?

A locomotive for Gn15. The basis is a rechargeable battery locomotive BBA 360 from the mining industry.

I love that battery loco. What did you use for the power unit?

I take the chassis of SB Modellbau. They are somewhat more expensive, but work perfectly. I use the Google translator.

The chassis of SB with fauhabermotor are really great.

Geared Faulhabers are the smoothest motors I have ever used too. Grandt Lines used to have them in their Porters. Wonderful at 80:1 gearing.
