I like the lichen and moss on the rock pile. I really feel humid and cold to the touch

Nice job on the rock pile, and the handrail! The texture and coloration of the rocks is excellent. The texture of the ties is also good too, assuming they are meant to represent old, heavily-weathered ties.

After I had reported longer anything more at this point, I would like to raise the coverage again, especially since in other threads the topic Mining is shown.

As at any other mine also belongs to the Monastery tunnel compressor station which of course I also want to simulate the model.


Here, the compressor station next to the shaft can be seen, and as it will be also on my model.


Here is another recent picture of the now displaced, modified compressor station.

But now to the model:
At first I tried simply to build plastic, but this proved to be very difficult due to the sometimes very low wall thicknesses, the compressor station. there with us an extra garbage can for recycled materials Fortunately.

So I resorted to the tried and tested for my material metal back and already with some cutting and bending, I could solder the station with the help of some brass scrap strip the model together.



The roof was made of an aluminum offset printing plate.

Here is a photo of the items.



By separating in assemblies of different colors, it is now easier to perform the paint job.



Meanwhile, the compressor has received the first color.

Meanwhile, other small parts are as signs u.s.w. added.



Watching are actually not all, since they are later on the back of the viewer.

Helmut, You may have started modeling the compressor in plastic, then changed to brass, but your work looks like solid gold to me. Not only do your models look good and accurate and highly detailed, they are also sturdily constructed.

Holy cats, that sure looks great! Hard to tell it's not full-size.

Hello,

I just wanted to report again.

With my monastery model I participated in the Miba competition "Ripe for the stage" and occupied a 3 place.


Urkunde 3. Platz Miba Wettbewerb "Reif für die Bühne"

Reason enough to continue working. Inspired by visits to miniature wonderland, I would also like to install a button that the audience can use to trigger an expiration. For this I have chosen the shaft II here I have just tried to show the desired procedure manually.

https://youtu.be/MDs_atVZp9I

The sequence consists of a Piezotaster with green and red identification, after all, 6 servos and the light in shaft II. For this I looked for a control, which made this possible. I found this control in the Netherlands with PiCommIT and the OC32. The OC32 as can be seen in the next video can be controlled manually, via a PC or DCC. The OC32 has 32 outputs or inputs. This can be connected to buttons, switches, LEDs, motors or servos and magnetic articles. So everything you want to control or regulate your model railway.

In order to gain experience, I first built up a test installation with the OC32 and all components required for the sequence control at the monastery studs.

Then I am intensively involved with the manuals available for this and I also visited seminars offered by PiCommIT.

The result I can present here today the test installation works now flawlessly the process, but see for yourself:

https://youtu.be/XtMPWW7_M1c

Now I can do the next OC32 in the monastery tunnels.

Since movements are best shown in the video, at the moment no pictures and only videos.
