(F) 1 cubic meter skips from card and more

Postby Christoph » Mon Aug 07, 2006 8:51 pm

Hi all ,

I want to show you my small skips from cardboard .

Image

The middle skip you knows it already, the right is new , built according to the same principle.
The left dumper is my own construction at the computer, similarly the welded cars, as it was built in East Germany.

Image

... and it could become a nice train .

Image

Bad times for my DCR for the moment :wink: :roll:

The models are 26.7 mm gauge

The loco is a Max Orenstein loco No 60 , build 1894 .
It is from a polish card kit , changed from 1:25 to 1:22,5 .

Hi all ,

I have lost the correct way :roll:
and my illness calls "Feldbahn".

And the name of this thread is also no more correctly ,
because there are four tipper cars in the meantime :D :D :D :D :D

Image

Image

and still many follow ......

And here the proof that it is from cardboard :

Image

I did something lead into the middle carrier, so that it gets more weights.
The tippers roll rather well.
More test I can make if I built enough track.

I drew it the first time with Corel and now with Inkscape under UBUNTU (Linux).
Probably I will try to draw a Gn15 version .
In addition some tests are necessary and it will last some time.
Of course I will communicate it here .

My first frames I glued on top of each other but that was not so simple.
Now the upper and lower frame parts are bent at the straight sides and stuck one on the other.
After that a strip of cardboard is glued from the outside into the developed profile.
Like that it is three-way strengthened and sees evenly smoothly from the outside.
The open corners in the curves I filled with glue and color. I hope you can understand which I mean :roll:

Image

Christoph

PS. It would have to be possible to build these frameworks from thin styrene, however the parts must be glued then directly one on the other.

Chritoph, ich wünsche, daß mein Deutsch so gut wie Ihr Englisch waren.

As I understand it, and sketching on the back of an envelope,

Image

The straight parts of the top and bottom of the frames have tabs (A), which glue together (B), and then a strip of card is glued to these (C), with the curves formed by eye. The any gaps are filled with glue before you paint the frame.

Neat. I'll have a try this evening.

Hi all ,

now I would like to show you what I did in the last two weeks.

Image

The breaked skip is very rusty in this time.
Then I work on a Ns2f for this train .

Image

This Loco was to attendance in New Zealand, for the comparison of the size . Much admires from the DCR workers :shock:

Image

In the meantime are uses 3 pieces A4 cardboard.

Image

Since today it has own feet.
And then I had to do a placing sample with the skips , naturally :D

Image

Image

Image

Unfortunately the weekend is already past, and I must waste my time with work again :cry:

... the skips have a "scale thickness" that kits often ...


For this reason I love this material so much. It is always possible to represent the correct thickness.
Problem thereby is stability.
Therefore I paint my models with several layers synthetic lacquer.
Latex or acryl are not possible because it would destroy the cardboard.
After long drying time can be used every other color for weathering.
I glue my models with UHU-Hart: "Airplane Glue"

Hi all ,

I did it again :roll:
But now I am completely mad :shock:
I built a chassis from cardboard with functional brake.
Here the parts.

Image

Image

Image

If I had a threaded rod it were absolutely originals .
Thus I must pull out the crank somewhat upward to brake .
I think , soon they will bring me into the lunatic asylum :oops:

Hi all ,

I have nothing more written here for a long time :oops:
but it continues :D

Image

In the frame of the loco I built a drive using a Chinese geared Micromotor.

Image

I built the cranks from brass and strengthen the bars with copper sheet.

Image

A simple remote control from a toy was used.

Image

Also I could hide 4 AAA Akkus therein.
And now I have still a small video for you.

The last car has wheels from card :twisted: :D :D :D

Hi all ,

my Loco is nearly finished .

Image

Image

Image

and now I build a larger open car for it.

Image

The chassis is from card , only the wheels and bogies are from brass .
The couplings are from copper ,

Image

And now I'm building another one :wink:

It is a car from the MPSB (Mecklenburg- Pommersche Schmalspurbahn) 600 mm gauge .
This railway company was created 1892 in the north east Germany .
Products of the agriculture were transported , but also persons .
At the best time of the railway company there were more than 200 km tracks. This car was built between 1910 and 1930.
After the end of the narrow-gauge railway , end of the sixties , unfortunately nearly all vehicles were scrapped.
From this cars only pictures exist.

The rivets I made from Window Colors :wink:

Wonderful Christoph, I have to keep reminding myself that these are made of card, they are so good. I really like that bogie wagon, beautiful work. Very clever way of doing the rivets, do you put the "Window Colour" directly onto the card :?: .

I'm using the black bottle for contour.

Before I dab the color up, I mark with a pin the rivets.
A glass beer is helpful for a not trembling hand :wink:
But after two beers I do not hit the markings any longer :roll:

Christoph

PS . this wagon is from wood and card on a LGB chassis :

Aaaah the cranks :D :D :D

I cut disks from brass round bar. On the disks I drew the correct form.
The remainder with saw and file.
I clamp the finished cranks one above the other into the vice and bored the holes with all the same distance.
Otherwise the connecting rods clamp .
The distance of the drillings in the rods has to be accurately the axle base.
For an easy play, I increased the holes horizontal something .
That's all , the work of one afternoon :wink:

Hi all ,

I built a potato car for my Feldbahn from cardboard .

Image

It consists of the frameworks of my skips and a Polish cardboard kit .
http://www.model-shop24.com/product_inf ... agen-.html

Image

Image

Some small parts are missing still but today was beautiful weather to make photos .

Here is the complete threat from the greman Buntbahn Forum with some original pictures of such cars.

Hi all,

here is the reason, why I do not have time for Gn15 for the moment.

Image

German Feldbahn into the beginning sixties :D

Image

Agricultural products are shipped and clay for a brickyard must be transported.

Image

Some things rust in a corner.

That is a small part of the layout, which I build with a friend, for an exhibition at the end of June in Schkeuditz not far from Leipzig.

That is set up all loosely on a board to test it .
I would not like to build a firm layout but put the tracks loosely on the baseboards and strew on it sand, crushed stone and saw flour.
Thus I have more flexibility and it can be transported more simply.

The horse is from Schleich and a little bid to big but it's so beautiful :)
It does not have an engine. It may not even run. Perhaps I must cultivate oats for it.
But there are model railways with oats engines in Spain.
http://maquetramway.iespana.es

Still another word to the tracks.
I did the tracks after an old catalog of O&K. A friend manufactured me a device for pressing the sleepers.
http://www.buntbahn.de/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6370
But the track is suitable only to drives with Akku! But it is weatherproof :-)

If there are new pictures, I will show it naturally !

Hi all,

I have completed my little Orenstein card steam loco.

Image

Here are some pictures from last weekend,
as the sun was looking for a moment.
http://www.kartonmodellbau.net/pics/geb ... nstein.htm

We were invited to the Rail Expo Paris with our Feldbahn .
And now there is still a lot to do.
Juergen (KEG) is also included :D
