A while back I asked here for info about orecars. With the info I get here and found on internet I made a drawing for the orecar I wanted. The drawing is only made for the dimensions of the frame and the bodywork. Details are not included. Because of all the angles I used CAD this time.
I started with the hopper part, if that's how you call it. Here are some pics of the progress.
Did some work on the underframe and put it together with the hopperbody. They're not exactly lined up but I think its good enough. Don't have really a choice either. I don't have much experience with desoldering (unsoldering?) and they're joined on 4 points so just heating one point won't do it.
The trucks are just for the photo.
It's been a while since I last posted something in this thread but I made a litlle progress this evening. I'll show two photo's of the setup I used for soldering the diagonal bracings. The pieces are to tiny to hold in place with tweezers so I used a thing we call overhere a third-hand and a hobbyvice.
Yes, nice soldering. I have messed around for years searching for good flux, finally found TIX liquid flux. I don't use much TIX solder but the flux is used on all my soldering. Don't know why but it makes the solder flow nicely and wicks just right. Everybody has their own choice, that's mine.
