Despite its slightly inaccurate reference to the internationally renowned and most highly regarded icon of our hobby, thank you for that rambling answer, Volker. Now go stand in the corner. -- Russ

Hi,

there was some distraction for the last year. I've been doing the layout and image editing for Wolf Groote's new book about the Plettenberg Railway, which is to be published in November: https://shop.vgbahn.info/vgbahn/shop/plettenberger+kleinbahn-_4619.html

Now that the project is finished I found some time for a tiny bit of modeling.





The stove and pipe elbows are 3D printed; cover is movable. Heat protection shield is made from 0.2 mm brass sheet and 3mm copper wire soldered to the edge.

Hope to contribute more soon.

Cheers,
Volker

A satisfactory accomplishment given the circumstances. In the future, however, be certain nothing distracts you from model building. -- Russ

Volker, Your model stove is most convincing!!
Would the real stove have a coal scuttle next to it since the stove is small and would need stoking often?

Thanks, Kim, Ray, Russ and Bill.

Kim, you're right. Here's a link to the prototype: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Ofen-Kanonenofen-Emaille-Ofen-Gussofen-alter-Ofen/253409974715

Would the real stove have a coal scuttle next to it since the stove is small and would need stoking often?

Bill, a coal scuttle is still to come as all the interior of the room is. It's going to be a small workshop/storage room. I think I messed the wall a bit up with black pigments, trying to achieve the edge blackening effect of old buildings with coal heating.

This picture shows coloring and surface much better than the other ones. Note the surface difference at the pipe elbows. Both are printed at shapeways, maybe with a different orientation:



Cheers,
Volker

Hi,

another cast iron stove for the large shop room:







And a test print for the street bridge hand rail by Kalle StŁmpfl, which is attached to the building's left side.





Wall thickness is 0.4 mm at the flourishes. I'm thrilled of the result. It's just some color from a spray can. No rework, no sanding aside of 6 or 8 tiny spots from support structures. And no dust removal before taking the pictures  Roll Eyes.

Cheers,
Volker

Always love seeing your work , but that steel handrail is really superb ...... so much better than all the plethora of laser cut versions that are on the market ........ yours really has a 3D look with the resting straps and the different thicknesses of the various parts

You know, I'm really getting tired of seeing so much perfection in your modeling. Nothing to criticize (except maybe the dust), instead always a superb example of what we all should aspire to. It's disgusting, I tell you, just disgusting! -- Russ

Both the stove and railing are beautiful, but the railing is especially impressive!
