229 Rivets

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.

Me have fun!!! ......... Juergen, it looks like you're having more than enough fun for all of us?

Great little project - and looks the the part too. The rivets make a positive difference and as a whole it makes a fine addition to your Railway wonderland.

All the best.

Just in case, somebody feels like counting a few rivets. Here is a picture of the ore car in an earlier stage

It was originally designed as a card kit by Martin M. Later Michael S. took the design and made a acrylic kit out of it.

There will we a suitable loco kit available later this year:

It is based around an idea of Martin K. A few details like axleboxes, rivets lamps etc. are still missing. The drive is a flat Austrian product, offered for tramways or streetcars,

Have Fun

Hi Juegen

Great effort, just think, five ore cars will give you 1000 rivets. that will be fun. :lol:

On Smithies I use 23,000 brick slips on buildings and aquaduct :roll: :roll:

That's a beautiful job, Juergen. The rivets make the model.

I love the center-cab locomotive, too. The flat drive leaves a
lot of room for detailing. This will be fun to watch as it develops.
