Erkut,
you might want to consider Busch's new Feldbahn system. I have been experimenting with it a little. It runs on a modified Z-track and might lend itself to some kitbashing with those beautiful Lawton kits.

Here is some more info.:

Thanks Christian,

They look good and with a little bit of weathering will perfectly do the job.
These will be our plan B if Aykut fails to construct the above kits.
But hush hush at the moment.....I'm a bit of masochistic in character and want to torment him Grin Grin....he doesn't have to know at this stage.

That looks challenging. Even with the precision of photo etched parts it would be hard to solder everything in exactly the right place. -- Russ

Those bits do look rather small... but then compared to a ladies Swiss watch, they are positively huge.

Progress is indeed slow, Aykut is about to flip his mind;



Abd and I  are doing a lot of research on the town and we came up with a lot of interesting facts and figures. The town was rich in copper and chrome. Chrome being the main ingredient of steel & stainless steel production.We found out that the Germans were quite active in the area specially during the war and contributed a lot to the mine and town itself....as we dig in it gets interesting.

anyway the station plan and the cable system built by the Germans;

Looking great Erkut, if this is your first with brass it looks even better. I have one of those lying around and never got the courage to start on it.

I don't think I've seen a friction drive like that before.

Contrary to Selcuk, before hammering in on to the layout, we started doing things in backward order, i.e,the loco's of that era. One is the GE U18C diesel.
Abd's on to it, progress;
