Hi Michael - reading the Buntbahner postings for your layout, I like the printed brickpaper that you have available for download. I see you call it there the "englische" Papierfolienmethode - not as exact as Marcel Ackle's but quicker and cheaper. My Google translation has "popular" paper film method for the phrase - how did it get 'popular' from 'englishe'?! It couldn't cope with Mandarinenschachtelm - could you explain the term, please?

I said "englische" Method because I saw the use of paper foil on english layouts frequently on Exhibitions.
"Mandarinenschachteln" are little boxes fore mandarine fruits. They are made in plywood and for build well to.
the Magic Train trucks is a possibility for an inexpensive beginning in Gn15.
For correct models naturally trucks are e.g. of Thomas Heyl better.

The Heyl skips are far beond my soldering skills and not really in my price range (approx. 40 Euro/each) He only offered them in 30m and 45mm ( 1 : 13) gauge
Not many of these kits were ever assembled.
I happen to have two of Ralph Brammer` s Gn15 skips, which are perfect for my needs
Still I wouln´t mind finding suitable and affordable ready-mades or kits. So I´ll wait, what Christoph & Ronald will have to offer later this year.

I really like the Trabi with the bonnet/hood up. A friend from the DDR said they spent a lot of time like that. The little 'Mofa'/motor scooter is nice too.

A good model, lots of details with a simple trackplan, Michael. Any more pictures of the workshop interior?

hello Stefan, it is not really a workshop, it is only a photo
