"new" Wächtersbach, far in the north of Germany

Postby xhelfix » Wed Jun 23, 2021 7:51 pm

Hey ho,

i think its time to make an new thret.
As some of you notice, i have to leav me good old playground at Wächtersbach, it was like a pice of my heart.
But it was necceary to move hous with complet family, so now im ca. 600km away from Wächtersbach.

So i make the decision to put up an new providing ground. Herby our new house.
Because of some trouble with my back and other thing , i can not start as fast as i want......but i hope that it happens the next month´s.

But i coulden leave my fingers from the tanks, so i build up some smal scenery´s and make some shots and videos at an alternative ground beside the house, that my son starts for his bruder tractors.
Always a bitt different vehicles and nations.
So i start with the things i make here at "NEW"-Wächtersbach, i cald it so, but it has nothing to do with the original Wächtersbach in midel of Germany.
Now im far north of germany.

OK, i think i have already postet some shots in the other thret (Wächtersbach), but i think its fine if you see what im doing here, so her comes some old stuff first, and i will go on till the last´s weekends.
Also with some Water action, 3min away ther is a smal sea with sandground, perfect for operation with boots and vehicels.

first is a P4 video:

after that i mixt a bit LGB train with some smal vehicles:

So i moved a bitt around the new house and make some US action:

Again with the train, but german and russian stuff:

back to US action with M41:

And again some german action with different P4 variants:

So thas for the start, at the moment the new ground is not startet, but i will keep you updatet and also the action on the alternative place, what i made the lasst weekends.

Greetz! Andy

Enjoy Schleswig, Andy- it is very pretty. You will also be closer to Munster, and the Panzer Museum :thumbup: I have been to Bad Segeberg, Lübeck and Kiel and liked what I saw there. Hope you can find a place there soon, to make a new tank park. :D :wave: It must have been hard to say farewell to your old playground.

:clap: :D ...and a tip for you on the 'cow carriage', in English, it would be a 'waggon' (vgl. Deutsch :Wagen'), or a cart. :D Normally, Waggons could be drawn by Oxen (Ochsen), or Horses (Alt Hoch Deutsch: 'Hros'). It's easy to forget that English was once a German dialect (1500 years ago!).
A fantastic display, and loved the Cromwell/Firefly. combination :thumbup:

:O :O That is truly astounding (erstaunlich), Andy!!. :clap: Either you will get the Nobel prize for super fast Tank Park building, or, a visit from the Marriage Guidance Counsellor (Beraterin für Eheberatung). To me, though, it's a new masterpiece!. :D If you're not already a landscaper, you could easily find a job as an Adventure Playground maker'. You have the talent! :clap:

Doch, bin ich auch erstaunend: Sie haben so viel schon gebaut! Man sagt auf Deutenglish: Goat in Himmel! (d.h. Steinbock, Capricorn) :sick:

I, too, am certainly amazed. You have already built so much. As one says in Germenglish: [the rest is a really bad cross-language pun].
