[CFF] More details…

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 21 September 2021as , ,

Hi folks,

I was able to postpone the cab construction by adding more details to the water tanks. So I added water hatches for the tanks from PVC and ABS plastics.

Another typical detail on such Budapest locos is the location of the water-sucker inside or in front of the smoke boy support. The model was scratch-built from brass.

Also typical is the diagonal pipe running to the top of the water tank. With such details, the water tanks are done as well. Now is no more hiding to get the cab attached.

Finally, I found some issues with my builders plate. Seems there are differences in scale somehow….

    Hallo Gerd!

    Schön zu sehen, wie sich die Lok immer mehr dem Ziel annähert.
    Das Schild ist übrigens nicht falsch. Du musst nur die Lok näher an die Kamera stellen und das Schild weiter nach hinten halten… Dann passt das schon. ;-)

    Viele Grüße
    Tobias

    Diese Lokomotive ist der Hammer und einmalig, über und über mit Detail ausgestattet. Da merkt man die Liebe zu Feld- und Waldbahnen. Echt klasse!
