agrarian trade in Gn15

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.

agrarian trade in Gn15

Postby 600mm » Sat Jan 23, 2010 4:15 pm

Hello friends, here is my new Gn15 layout. It represents an agrarian trade between 1950 and 1960.

Moin Michael,

Great layout, shows that a lot can be achieved using a simple trackplan. I agree with Christoph that the central location of the tree enlivens the scene.
I note that you're using the same wall that you posted last February. :wink: By the way the Printy link you posted for the wall doesn't work anymore. :cry:
What do you plan to do with the backscene?
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

Hi,
Gut Dich hier zu sehen,ein besseres Forum als das BBF fuer Gn15.

Love the layout,especially the subject. Is there a Still (Schnapsbrennerei)
somewhere in the background?The old fruit has to do some good.........
Looking forward to hear about the critters.

Very Gnice layout Michael,

The top windows as well the many other details look smashing! The way the track splits on the curve is really pleasing. The staff have that "Yes, all right! I'll do it in a minute or two or three..."
Little old lines to somewhere.

That looks seriously ( :shock: can I use that word in here?) good Michael.

I really like the way it appears as both end to end works to shed - but can be left to chug along as a continuous circuit too. And that way of cutting off the tree so that foliage doesn't need grappling with is a 'must nick' idea.

cheers

Very nice work, Michael. A simple track-plan, but all the fine details make for lots of interest.

Are they giving him a hard time because he's a red-head? (I was one myself once - when I had hair) :roll:

Very nice work. Full of details and everything blends in well. Like the grass growing around the track and timber supports.
Thanks for sharing with us.

Hello, times again which of Traugott Trödel. After the diesel locomotive developed (chassis of Hornby), has I the clutches made new. Both of the diesel locomotive, and of the cars now one pours. Thus I have a standard for all models. One couples by means of chain (inexpensive from the building market) and dome iron (curved from cupper and solders).

Image



The transport of the most different goods from (imaginary) the port, takes place mainly by means of 4-wheel flatcar. Width approx. 45mm, which corresponds to a originalspreads of something over a meter. Since with industrial trains many cars of the same design were present always, also for this basicmodel was built and poured off then in Resin. The cross beam consists of brass profile. The chassis are from Fleischmann, so that outstanding running properties are guaranteed.


Image

Image

Carcass of the cars. There are two variants: With high and low front wall.



Image


One priming from the spray box with clamping coat. The coloured treatment goes then by hand and brush. For the plant I compiled a color pattern, so that the vehicles are quasi standardised. Here everything over model construction colors.

I like the bogie wagon. Not thought of doing that. Good idea. Perhaps Steve B will come up with something! Chopping a couple of his wagons and mounting onto a new plasticard base could be a possibility.
What radii does this go round?

Hello mud magnet,
the smallest radius is 150mm. Starting from March there are the cars also as small series similarly Steve B.

Your seven picture 'photo story' of that modification is well done :D

Hi Michael - I enjoyed your SBS on converting the Magic Train tippers very much. If I'd seen this a year or more ago I might have chosen to do that instead of my
very labour-intensive job on the Gnomy skips! I don't know how easy it is to get hold of the Magic Train skips - the Gnomys were very cheap and to hand, however.

I like the Deutz loco very much, too.

Hmm . . . "The Magic Train Tippers" . . . someone with a slightly askew imagination and a good hand for cartooning could have lots of fun with that phrase.

The Landhandel looks very charming. I heart, it will be on exibiton at the Schkeuditz event in June this year.

But I think, the Fleischmann skips are too small for the 1 : 22,5 figures. The 40mm wheelbase looks out of proportion as well. 25 - 30 mm might look better.

Christoph reduced one of his papercraft kits, he developped to 1 : 32 scale and placed it on 16mm track.

Image

Maybe he and his friend Ronald will offer these later this year with a white metal frame. As far, as I kow, there are no suitabe Gn15 skips on the market yet.

Hav Fun
