Good evening

Back from Luxembourg. The very first time I could show my work to the public.
I am really happy about all the (mostly) positive reactions from everybody.

A good friend of mine did even made a video:  https://vimeo.com/321306561
Please enjoy!


Wow, that is awesome! Great modeling, and all the animations and sound really bring it to life!

Nicely done.  Its the little things which sometimes inspire all of us to do great models.  The recycling of the military trailer by the farmer is a great touch.  If you made a base representing a dirt/muddy trail the water buffalo could become its own mini diorama.

Thanks for your comments!

While browsing the internet I came across a really remarkable railcar from the myanmar railways.



Credit: foto by Florian Grupp, 2010.

One can clearly discover that the railcar is actually driven by tires.
So the steel wheels just guide the car on the rails.
A really very interesting way!

Mabe one of you knows more about this car?
I do know that the french tested a similar railcar from the company Michelin.

Hello everybody

Some progres to show.
I am on the way to draw a plan for a reproduction of the railcar. Have to buy some plasticard, too.

In the meantime I am working on a tree. Base is a branch from the garden. The leaves are my own lasercut leaves.



I also added some motorbikes to make the street a little bit more asian style crowded.

Hello Russ and Chuck

Thanks for your kind comments!

I am continuing with the shell of the railcar.
A lot of sanding...:



I could get some informations about the car from Florian Grupp.
He shows us some fotos here:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/12906273@N05/albums/72157628970599049/page3

And som more informations (in german) here:

https://www.drehscheibe-online.de/foren/read.php?017,8883540

The railcars themselfes are completely low budget builds made by the myanmar railways.
They are based on a chassis from old HINO lorries.
There are no plans available as they built the railcars just from everything the could gather..

Hello everybody

Easterweekend gave me a little time to heat the lasercutter from the office I am working.
So I sketched an easy-to-build-kit for the seats:



Now I just need plenty of patience...
