Thank you Soeren and DJ for the kind words.
I am working hard on new model, which should be finished in a couple of weeks. Test build is in progress and I will show some pics soon.



Cheers

Great result with the wagon!
My idea was, to build Trumpeterīs Diesel-locomotive and a heavy weights-wagon for a diorama.
Your ones look better than "big Tīs" ones.
But also "big Tīs" Diesel-loco is not a good solution because itīs not the serial-model.
But I will see.

Yes, youīre right... life can be hard sometimes. But this time itīs a bit different to the previous.
But I hope to get a new job soon.

greetings...
Soeren

Hi Soeren,
thank you very much for the kind words. Much appreciated my friend. I know you had the personal problems, it happens sometimes, life can be a bit hard sometimes
This blog is actually over, I might just add a few pictures of this wagon converted to German SSyl Koln

Wow, the result of the wagon looks great!
After a long "pause" (no views and no comments on your page) another life-sign by me. (I had some personal problems)

I like the wooden structure and the colors! (itīs a "basic paint job", but it looks good)

Ahh, Libor.... Iīve seen that you made some model-kits and update sets.
They look great!
When I see the water-crane and the update-parts for the BR-86 locomotive... I can only say... WOW!
Iīve read your build-logs of them and Iīm very impressed!

greetings...
Soeren

Thank you for your comment Alabamas, though I dont know what exactly you mean. Anyway, its been a while, and now I can get here to show more, however there is not much left to finish.
Because this was kinda test build, I did just some very basic painting job on it to give it a better look







Cheers

Hi Jeremy, then go for it! Personally I did never expect I would get stuck with rolling stock like this

Man Libor, I almost forgot how much I love trains, thanks for reminding me! I'm tempted to try out your scratch detailing on a styrene kit...

Well, Jan, no further progress here made yet
Richard, to be honest, I dont know much about American railway - very similar wagons were also in use in Germany and other countries that time. The truth is that most Russian vehicles from the beginning of 20th century were produced on base of foreign ones - not only locos or wagons, but also cars, trucks, tractors - often American originals followed - licenced or not
Cheers

First class build Libor. Those truck frames look like Arch Bar type used in America, are they a Soviet version of the Arch Bar?

Well then, Johanna, Libor - you're very kind, but I guess that's about enough of my BR52! For those wanting to take a look: Click.

Let's go back to topic now - Libor, your turn again!

Cheerio!

Hi Johanna,
thank you for the kind words.
Janīs cab came along very nicely - love the worn off effect he used.
Styrene pieces used for building, yes, they are included in the kit - its actually common practice that many resin kits come with styrene, brass and everything needed to build a model. No update yet, but its coming soon
Cheers
Libor

Hi Libor,

Great work, nice details and interesting to follow. Jan's BR52 is really a nice picture to see in real live.

Is everything what I see on the pictures included in the kit? I see some evergreenparts, that's why I ask

Cheers, Johanna

Hi Jan, thank you very much. No doubt, BR86 wont be missed and forgoten
BTW - the cab on your BR52 looks stunning, great work there. I did not want to use much rust on my loco, which was actually just couple years old that time - but I really like the way you did in your cab
Cheers

Thank you Matt for your kind comment. It goes fine together, very important thing was to keep right angle in any corner of the frame, working on large, flat surface to get whole chassis straight.
Cheers

A wonderful bit of scratch-building libor. It all seems to be coming together well. Definitely have to keep up with this build.

Another small update, I have added more PE parts. These are actually stanchion holders, but so far I have not seen any of those platforms with stanchions mounted on. Anyway, there are here, every completed with 3 PE parts - can be soldered or glued, everything works fine.



Easy job to place them on, using a ruler to keep right distance between them - according to the instructions. Also tiny rings assembled this way.

Really nice build. I like the looks of the small details in brass. Looking forward to the progress pics.

Very quick one for tonight. I added air valves, hoses (I replaced cats ones with tiny cable isolation to keep them flexible) and connectors. Also couplers and buffers assembled - the last ones could be kinda optional, once wagons were equiped with Willison type couplers (their implementation began in 1935, until then well known common screw couplings and buffers were in use) the buffers lost their purpose - sometimes removed, sometimes kept. Ti finish this step, I put on holders for coupler manipulating rod, the rod itself made from 0,4 mm wire, and the rest of the parts.








Cheers
Libor
