[CFF] “Moldovita” caboose (part 2)

Well, the car is done…
And as in the first part, I don’t have photos of the building steps. If you’re interested in details, feel free to ask!

Once all the brass profiles were applied, I brush painted them black. The window framing got glued onto the plastic window-glazing first and the whole windows are than installed to the car. Additional details parts got added from plastic and metal parts to complete the car body. Last challenge became the roof, which was made from three separate bend segments soldered together. On the inside, the roof is inforced by two 10mm plywood arches. The roof is removable to show to the interior.

As usual, the car got its final transformation from “model car” to “logging railroad equipment” by the use of the airbrush. The third photo shows the interior I added. The door features working hinges and opens.

Last photos today are showing the latest models in service on the garden railroad.

Cheers, Gerd
