Hello Christoph and welcome to the Gnuthouse :) I like your model of a wind powered speeder 8) 8)

A possible term IMHO would be model(l)ing forums (or "fora", to be particularly pedantic). :wink:

BTW: Nice to meet you here too.

Cheers

Welcome Christophe! You've tackled an unusual prototype with the sail-car - is it powered or do you have to blow it along?

Hi,
@ Gerald: forums wäre auch zu einfach gewesen :wink:

@Bilco: The sail car is windpowered (or hairdryer, or i´ll have to blow it 8) ). When i was taking the photos a had to stop it because the wind was really speeding the car on the short track...

Originaly such cars where in use on the Halligrailway to Oland and Langenes in North Frisia on the Northseacoast of Germany (on 900m Gauge).
A few years ago one was rebuild for Display, take a look at: http://www.karstenhansen.de/

Christoph
