Re: 90-Ton 2-8-2 Build, 1.5"/ft. Scale, 7.5" Gauge

Hello Russ and Greg, You're absolutely right regarding standard photos! To me this seems to be the standard all over the USA. For detaling my class A, the only way getting detailed photos from aside , backwards, above, inside the cab and all those deatails was to take such photos by my self or by fr...

Re: 90-Ton 2-8-2 Build, 1.5"/ft. Scale, 7.5" Gauge

Hello Russ, Very nice little parts! Your method of fixing small parts :) is just what I recommended, if I read your pre-last post in time. Very often I'm using a simple clamp made of a small stripe of stainless steel. Works fine due to stainless material mostly won't stick and withstands red hot hea...

Re: 2020 Steampunk Quarantine Handcart Contest

Hello friends,
Some progress of my class 20 (still without steam, yet). Photos of the tender and boiler outline are showing the overall look.
All done during corona lock down :)

Stay happy despite corona :evil:

Re: 2020 Steampunk Quarantine Handcart Contest

Hello steamers, Here's more equipment for steam actions :) Not on rails yet, but everything is possible due to a generous boiler, delivering steam to any type of steam engines :lol: . Thinking about a steam-electric driven conveniant vehicle riding on 7 1/4 " rails for my old days. Carry on! Asteamh...

Re: BR55/G8.1 Locomotive Project

Hello datman, Sorry, but I'm not sure, which nos. are yours and which are shown in the original drawing? All measures of the (prussian) drawings are shown in [mm] for sure. Thus I think of metric [M 20] or similar, rivets of 14 mm and bores of about 15 mm in diameter. Back before founding of the DR ...

Hello RussN, Nice work and continous progress! Just the right time for working at our hobby - far from others and Corona :evil: !

Re: 2020 Steampunk Quarantine Handcart Contest

Hello RussN, Here's may way of building not just punk or steam but heavy metall :). Maybe the oldtimers in this forum know the vintage Maerklin (or Meccano) metal building systems from the 1960s? A dream of mine was the construction of a locomotive made of those standard parts as realistic as possib...

Re: Mosley Generator

Thanks, Harold! Fair comment as always - one important reason, why we all can enjoy our hobby and like the chaski forum! By the way, an old friend who passed away some years ago, once constructed and built some working scale turbo generators, too. The biggest one of scale 1 in 4 not just delivered 3...
