Thank you very much for your interest and recognition.

In the meantime, I have used the axle box for a trial in the bogie. The spring is thus compressed under full load. Of course, there are still missing the rockers on the spring pad.



Unfortunately I do not have pictures of the original at the moment, which I can show here for comparison. When I bought eyebolts, I simply ground the collar.

It continues with the bogies.


There are 2 different bogies and this is the back.
The front bogie is already finished.
Since the sling has a gigantic model weight, the bogies actually have no suspension but end stops. These end stops can be adjusted via the locknuts. Out of these end stops, the wheels can still spring out of the springs due to small compression springs.


Here the counter bearing of the bogie with an axial ball bearing as the model.

Beautiful work! The weathering on the metal looks good. How did you do it?

That looks amazing! The coloration makes it hard to imagine it's actually brass and not steel.

Some may have already noticed, originally this was supposed to be a RHB Xrot 9213. Only after the announcement of LGB to bring a r13 to the market and the fact that this colourful railway project unfortunately no longer had the original resonance, Wilhelm and I decided to make the R13 a R12 to be able to finish the project at least for us .

The R12 itself is currently in the processing and we are also following this with interest, more on this [url = http://www.dampfschleuder.ch/] here [/url]:

Today I used to deal with the tender, because it is identical to the same and also identical to the tender of the steam locomotive.

So I used yes for the suspension eye bolts:



Much to me the picture of the water level sensor-probe from the tender and I had a solution.

Look here today I have built the water level sensor-valves.



Such a faucet consists of the following parts.

An M1 eye bolt with waistband.
A 2 mm piece of 1 mm tube for the spout.
An angle of 1 mm brass wire with an M1 thread.
With a M1 nut held, the faucet is even still to be operated.

Only there is no water in the tender, therefore no water can come out.

I think the good looks of my burnished brass hangs with my way of processing together. I radiate the parts immediately before the brown with aluminum oxide, which cleans the brass and raut it quite finely. Through this processing, the blueing works much more intensively.

Looks great, Helmut!
Even though there is no water in the tender, you could pose a very convincing photo by having a worker near one of the valves and temporarily pushing the end of a clear fiberoptic rod lightly into the opening of the faucet and the other end poking into a clear resin puddle on the ground to model a stream of water squirting out.

Hi Bill,

Therefore, I was glad that after soldering, at least 2 of 3 taps still allowed to move.
