[CFF] Completing the rail-car

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 5 June 2018

Hi,

today I’ll show you the second part of the rail-car. As announced in the last post, I made a new trailing truck from brass and small 18mm wheelsets. As before, I used photos of the car at Commandau as reference. The truck can be taken apart by screws to insert the wheelsets after painting.

At the car, I added a bolster to take the front truck. From the scrapbox, I took a pair of old couplers which are used as buffers. Below the side doors, a step from brass will help to climb into the car.

Once the driver was glued in place, I screwed on the body shell and gave the whole car a nice weathering. Once I can acquire some tools and crates, I’ll add some load to the trunk of the car.

Cheers, Gerd
