[CFF] aux. tender “Moldovita” style (part2)

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 8 October 2019

Here comes the second part of this small tender car. As announced last week, I spend a sand-blast and painted the body black. Once assembled, I soon realized, that something went wrong with proportions in height.

I checked some prototype photos and soon found out, that the roof on my car is 6mm to height. So I cut it down with Dremel-tool and soldered back on in the correct height. Much better. The split wood was made from real wood and glued in place with white glue. Finally, the car got a nice airbrush-weathering and is now ready for service on my railroad.

And work on the next project has already started. So stay tuned for next weeks update…

Bye, Gerd

    Sehr gelungen der Hilfstender! Bei schlechter Witterung allerdings kein angenehmer Arbeitsplatz da hats der Lokführer schon etwas besser!

    Denk da braucht man dan schon hin und wieder innere Aufwrmung durch einen Klaren oder?

      Moin Bernd,
      es gibt da verschiedene Varianten. Entweder durch den Deckel des Kohlentenders oder es wird beim all stündlichen Wasserfassen Das Holz nach vorne geräumt.
