@Allan, Hauk, Russ, Ray, Kim, Bill and Barney: Thank for your approval Smiley

The first of the two pendulum pillars were finished today.

For this I had cut a few pertinax gauges. They should help me in aligning the upper L-profiles.


Pendel-Pfeiler_Montagehife_05_ (fspg2)



Pendel-Pfeiler_Montagehife_06_ (fspg2)



The excess solder was removed largely with a small triangular scraper and a preparation tool / Glasradierer (like this). The sandblasting gun did the rest.


Pendel-Pfeiler_02 (fspg2)



The two equal halves I putted together. The 0.4mm thick nickel silver plate served as a conduit.


Pendel-Pfeiler_03 (fspg2)



Both parts were pressed together easily. The overhanging L-profiles were cutted with the Böhler-saw.


Pendel-Pfeiler_04 (fspg2)



The similarity with the drawing is wanted.

@Ray, Russ, Hauk: Thanks - slowly I'm quite embarrassed.

I have been asked to give an overview about my activities at buntbahn forum - perhaps it is also of interest here?

Eight years ago I started with my project, even more intensively and sometimes less. Job and family comes first. But there ist no date I have to be ready!
It makes me fun, the individual steps to go through (such as research, drawing and design, milling, soldering and construction, try out and if it doesn't work to try it again,...). There is never a dull moment.

It follows an overview of the projects associated with the topic "Feldbahn modules with ship"

a. the old platform Here still the turnouts and the greening are missing.

b. the lift bridge It works the mechanical drive - I am currently on the pendulum pillars. Now both pillars are completed.

c. the old shed See below!

d. the truck scale The roof could be covered with the existing roof tiles by Volker now.

e. the old port crane He waits for the next use of soldering.)


The front wall of the old fire station was milled in scale 1:22.5. – I stopped working on it!
The 1:24 ladder looks just too puny in comparison. I only know in scale 1:22.5 Opel Blitz as LF8, which fits into the 60th years.

Clicking on the blue marked letters let appear the German pages of Buntbahn. You can translate it with Google Translator.


Grundriss_FMmS_2 (fspg2)



Grundriss_Module_bislang-fertig (fspg2)



Always, if I have a little time, I look at the parts and then any of the parts gains. :wink:

Currently I'm on the bridge superstructure - also if the old shed asked to get some bricks.



Once Volker announced the first casting of the roof ridge brick with a picture, ...I was just a bit appalled by the unmasking of this macro photo.


Firstziegel_00 (fspg2)

(Image by Volker)


He told me that you wouldn´t see the levels of pressure with the naked eye.

Recently I got the roof ridge bricks.

He's right, on a quick comparison photo (it´s still a magnification!) you can collate an unedited brick behind the front brick easily sandblasted.


Firstziegel_01 (fspg2)



Firstziegel_02 (fspg2)



Let's see how the parts look burnished and treated with red color, just as Volker did it before here

It is good to see the diagram of your overall plan to understand where each of the models will be located. The roof tiles look very good after you did a little cleaning up.

Not only do the new parts look terrific but I love the concept of the entire layout. -- Russ

That's what you get when you counts rivets - or only stones... and you doesnt know the overall dimensions of the original!

When I started with the my project "Feldbahn modules with ship" in mid-2007 I did the first drawings for the bridgeheads. I walked out of dimensions which I had measured on a stone of a demolished old house.
Helmut milled the MDF-plates with the joints according to my DXF drawing.

All parts fit together, the two bridgeheads were glued and the toothed quoins were trimmed in the joints with a thin sawblade. Like here:: click. Finally everything was primed gray.

So far so good!

Brueckenkoepfe (fspg2)



As I put the bridgehead on a drawing of the original bridge elements (scaled to 1:22,5)  I noted the estimated dimensions are not correct. The width is about 10mm too wide.

I'll make the parts just new!
To scale down the entire sketch doesnt work because the stones have to be changed slightly different in height and width.

Now I have changed the individual size of all different stones, so that the width of the bridge head becomes 10mm smaller.

Brueckenkopf_02 (fspg2)



Currently the bridgehead looks more prototypical.

Brueckenkopf_05 (fspg2)



The wall joint with 0.5mm thickness is included into the stone size.
Just to mill the outer contour with a 1.5mm router, I drew a new layer. It has a gap of 0.65mm. (0.75mm ist the correct worth, but it´s more easier to put the tooth of the stoneedges together.
The nooks have been pre-drilled with a 0.5mm drill. Thus, the corner radius has been reduced from 0.75mm to 0.25mm. The plates fit together without extra work at the corners.


Brueckenkopf_06 (fspg2)



Brueckenkopf_07 (fspg2)


This is the DXF file passed to Sheetcam.

Brueckenkopf_08 (fspg2)



Three and a half hours later, plates for one bridgehead were finished.

Brueckenkopf_09 (fspg2)



At German buntbahn forum I was asked for the dimensions overall the modules:

@Russ  Maybe you are right Smiley

Here a small update from last night.

Wood glue and screw clamps, sandpaper and a 0.5mm saw blade helped in assembling the first parts.

The toothed quoins I had let protrude approximately 0.5mm. Similarly, you can see here on the picture of the old only loose assembled bridgehead: click

After drying of the glue the entire block has been laid flat on a sandpaper (200 grain) and abraded with two, three movements to the brick surface. After that the 0.5mm saw blade cut free the joints at the corners,

Brueckenkopf_16 (fspg2)


sandpaper (600 grain) smoothed the complete surfaces and a brass brush cleaned the joints from dust.


Brueckenkopf_14 (fspg2)

That looks solid to me!
I wish I had one of those cnc routers!... Embarrassed
Thanks for posting - always an inspiration!
