Welcome aboard Thorsten. Very nice job building your first locomotive. You have great modeling skills. Will you please explain the sugar idea in more detail, the results look convincing.

Hi Thorsten

1 photo in every Post is great !!
More than 10 on a Page & it is a very-slow loading page for many people.

Your new critter looks GREAT !!

:moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:

I was brought up as a kid near the sea...
...close to 'The Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway' - 15"
I have always liked this size !

The proportions look just right.
That painting has worked real well.
I have not heard of sugar used before, only salt...
...I guess it's the same, but different.

Keep the photos coming.
We love to see peoples work !!

The 'step by step' was FANTASTIC !!
It is what helps people build their own things easier.

:moose:

All the best

Cheers

Si.

Thorsten.
What chequer-plate floor did you use ?
Was it made by 'Slaters' ?

Hello everybody! Thank you for your nice words. The floor in the loco... hm... I think I bought it in my little art supply shop. I really don´t know who build it, I´m sorry.
Saugar. It´s the same with salt but sugar is more corny. The scars in the paint are deeper and I think, more "realistic", it´s just in our eyes cause realism is different for everybody so it is subjective.
For to understand the "history" of my loco you must know, in what kind of business she worked. She did a really hard job in a calcareous sandstone factory and the idea is, I found her in a shrunken loco shelter, in Germany we had many of these factorys. See here: https://www.geschichtsspuren.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9430&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 - I´m sorry but its not possible to set links in the right way!
In the next post I show you the second loco and it ist not painted yet. So I show the sugar trick step by step. And I take some things of the daily life for to build it like packaging of an IPod and a chairwheel for the fresh air for the diesel .

cu soon

Thorsten--

Great work--I really like it--especially the second one which must be a Deutz--one of my favorite critters.

Thank you for sharing your very nice work with us here at FreeRails.

Herb

Thank you all. It is what Ken said: "GN 15 is hard to beat." Thats true. I will do my very best. :) !

I think I show you the way of the last critter. The painting I will do in the next days, when my wife and my daughter (she is 6 years old and she has taken some of the pics!) give me the time for doing that.

OK! there it is...
