An interesting project.

What will the colour scheme be ?


Peter

Have yet to decide....

One of my favorite colors.... silver, would be appropriate for a lightweight car,
considered "revolutionary modern" in its time.... 

Orange would be another choice (the CSS&SB had one in Traction Orange)....
Or my all time favorite, Armor Yellow.

'First Person Scale Models' Evans Railbus made the first successful loops...

Had trouble with the stock bronze wipers of the Halling "Vario" trolley drive,
replaced them with my standard nickel silver wire wipers.

Found a way to put 2mm LEDs in the frame.
This has the additional benefit that they act as location pins for the body.

Decoder is high up under the roof, had to connect it with connectors,
as there wasn't enough space for plugs and sockets.

I attached only sockets to the frame, and put the wires in them directly.

Floriat Railbus + trailer are nearly finished.

Think I will replace the old decoder, as it still doesn't run ok.

Also need etched ladders, all those I have here are far too wide.

Although this thing wasn't intended to run on steel rails,

it would look good doing so !

Hi Gerold  :wave:


I love a clunky ol' rusty railbus ...  :mex:

But your streamliner & trailer are just  T :cool: :cool:   C :cool: :cool:





The one based on the Opel Blitz chassis is a nice lil' number as well !  :thumb:


I gotta 'Roden' 1:35 Opel 3.6-47 Omnibus kit stashed here.  :bg:

I recall Jose saying, def. a RAILBUS !  :pimp:


Darn BIG though in 1:35 running on 2' gauge track !!  :shocked:  :shocked:

I may have to reconsider it as a SMALL canteen/dinner.  L:

The lil' ol' lovely ...  [whack]

... somehow reminds me of my friends vintage 'Isetta' bubble-car !  :cool:


With the rear-engine ?

But NO front windscreen door in this one !  ;)


I guess they must have somehow changed the gearbox around ?  ???

Since it looks like it would be in 'reverse' all the time, when going forwards !  :Crazy:

Have I ever told the story,
how I went down a steep hill in an Isetta with a dead engine,
and the front door came unlatched and opened halfway ?

This in itself wouldn't have been a great deal,
but in this contraption the steering wheel is attached to the door ! 


Your remark re reversed direction has some point,
the rear looks like the bonnet of a Ford truck.

" ... the rear looks like the bonnet of a Ford truck "


Hi Gerold


Yes indeed !

So it does.


I was wondering why it looked familiar.

I have several Russian 'Ford' & U.S. 'Ford' kits.


Si.


My friend got trapped in his Isetta once !

There was a slight downward slope, where he parked it.

He stopped the engine, & it rolled forward slightly onto a wall.

He couldn't start it again, to back up & open the door !!
