Hi Guys, its been a while since I was building something, so here is something new.

This is one of the most known and also infamous German wagons. With some changes of design produced in thousands pieces since 19th century, earlier with brake cab mounted up at roof level, later without it, these wagons were used widely in German rail service to transport goods and often animals as well. During the WWII they became an important part of any military train heading the battlefield, filled with supplies or soldiers, and they were also used to transport all enemies of the nation to concentration camps. Here is one of these wagons, they could vary in small details, depending on manufacturer and year of production. This one shown in German museum has marking of a car captured and used by Allies at the end of the WWII.

Some photos of "sprues" I dont have all of them finished yet, and I will add more during my progress (also pics of PE´s and decals)
 
 
 

Thank you for looking in
Cheers

Ron, Adam, Robin, thank you for your kind comments guys. This is also about to create kinda building instructions, but I will make it quick and far behind Adam´s railcar masterpiece. To be honest I should have this build finished already, but busy things keep me away
Here are PE sheets and decals for the kit

 

Frame assembly
This job is easy, once again it is very important to keep eye on right angle in any corner, also perfectly flat working surface is a need. Just small cleaning where connectors to feeders were placed - these sides will be turned to the floor anyway. I completed frame beams, dry-fitted in assembly slots first, because frame construction needs exactly the same length like floor sections glued together - these are different ones for outside and inside, both by two (if needed, the long beams can be set up by a little sanding) and finally I glued all together.






From brake sprue I cut out a hook spring, and glued in two short pieces of plastic rod. It will be glued between central beams and plastic rod will be used to connect it to both hooks. It is a simple thing to reduce shocks, when train starts moving.



More to follow soon.....
Cheers
Libor
