Hi
before I went to 0f12, I start to build an 0e (0n30) Railcar, and I'm about to finish it. First idea was to use a Fleischmann Magic Train coach, but then I build it completely from scratch. Design was made step by step while I build, and so some pieces I must make two times ;) Chassis is from a german 4axle H0 switcher.

Here is the pic:

Maybe this green :bg: ? This was the first "mockup" with the original Fleischmann coach, now I want to use it as trailer, and the railcar will get the same color:




I'm thinking about some thin beige lines...

Michael,

I really like the effect you have created. It will look great as a Rail Car and trailer.

I would go for a deep red with beige lines.

Cheers

Pete

Thanks to all for the kind words :Woohoo:
Green or dark red, thats the question, or like George W. says: Everyone has a decision to make.... :Hmm:However, at first I still must do some work on the body, prepare the glazing, handrails, stairs etc. Stay tuned...:)

Breakin news ;)

Martin from Kalles german forum like the railcar so much, as he build his own - and he was faster as me :shocked::bg::

http://www.kostenloses-forum.com/board/triebwagenprojekt-,nxu,01642644nx1878,t,1931,start,30.html#15648

So I hurry, and here is the next step:





Decision of color was easy, because I hadn't a suitable green on hand... I will still make a thin yellow line under the windows and a black line at the bottom including the steps. Roof is not fixed also. And who had his greasy fingers on the front???:old dude:

It is a honor to have someone like your work so much that they copy it!

You have made a nifty little railcar that you can be proud of. :apl::apl:


Please send another photo when you are finished-

Of course I'm proud, and I like the "little blue brother" :bg:. We have planned a meeting of the railcars... maybe in September at KS Modelling Days in Stromberg.

Nearly finished:



To Kalles meeting in Stromberg are only few days left... so I keep up the work on the railcar to finish it.  The yellow and black stripes are wet transfer decals, Horns and exhaust I made from round acryl bar and brass wire, wipers and doorknobs are commercial parts. Driver figure and lettering still left, and maybe some bodges are to hide ;)
