• Model making - one step further

    After the yard and the work outside under the midnight sun definitely have priority in summer, in September / October I can with a clear conscience pay more attention to the space at the desk / work table and work creatively on a small scale. So it's time to leave a few words here again. 2021 is now two weeks old and many started the new year with a look back and a look into the future. Then I am so uncreative and do it like the crowd. 2020 Can you look back on this year without mentioning Corona? I do not think so. Nevertheless, I have to say that here in Northern Norway we are on the ...

  • Little things

    It's time for a little update again. Even if I haven't written anything here for three months, a lot has happened in the background. On the one hand I continued to work on the Saxon goods wagon G1 and corrected some dimensions according to new findings, on the other hand I also worked on smaller models, also to see what is technically possible with the Prusa SL1 3D printer. For example, a Saxon point lever with a lantern and a Saxon locomotive lantern were created. The point lever has no function and is not illuminated (what is not, can still be), the locomotive lantern can be illuminated with a 0,5 mm light guide, which makes the glass bulb of the petroleum lantern very ...

  • Prusa SL1 - It is printed!

    I am currently producing components and models using three different production techniques - metal etching, 3D printing and laser cut. Since all my digital templates are now created as vector graphics in Adobe Illustrator, I am relatively flexible in choosing the technology and can choose the appropriate process depending on the requirements. There is one disadvantage, however. In Norway there are no providers of such commissioned work. Therefore, the etching and laser cutting are done in Germany and the 3D printing in Belgium. This usually takes several weeks and, thanks to additional customs fees, costs a lot. But especially in the planning phase, you want to see changes directly on the model, preferably as quickly as possible. Etching yourself is for ...

  • Freight cars in era I

    Era I extends from the first train journey between Nuremberg and Fürth in 1835 to the establishment of the Deutsche Reichsbahn in 1920. For a better overview, Era I is therefore divided into four sub-eras. Era I a 1835 to 1875 Era I b 1875 to 1895 Era I c 1895 to 1910 Era I d 1910 to 1920 If you want to represent the time of the state railways in the TT gauge, you quickly realize that the range of rolling stock is very thin . There are a number of models from the manufacturers Tillig and Hädl for the era Id, but these are often taken from later eras and ...
