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 Bilco » Thu Feb 18, 2010 12:25 pm

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?

Hello Bill,

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.

Hello Jürgen,

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

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.

Have Fun

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.
