Hello friends

As always, I wanted to be big.

It should be this locomotive of the Reichsbahn.


Image



Just as the Panzer IV was the workhorse among tanks, the BR 52 represented the same among the locomotives.

I started drawing and lasering the first parts about 2 weeks ago.

Somehow the whole thing has pulled me under its spell that I'm really already very far.

Well that was a small extract of the parts

More pictures will come tomorrow

Oh, big project. That's a lot of parts to draw from pictures. For sure, using the Trumpeter 1/35 kit and triangulate the scale would be a good way to get shapes and measurements for each parts. But it looks like you have no trouble.

If i may ask, what's the plan for the tracks ?

Hello railroad friends

Thanks for your comments

To the questions

Yes it is 1:16 scale.

I'm just building that standard.

The Trumpeter kit is also used for the implementation.

There are a lot of small parts that have to be drawn and printed.

But it will be a great model I can already say that

So continue with pictures of the tender

Work horse of German railway. After the war over 1200 of them was used in Poland as Ty2. Three of them are still operational and many are now museum pieces or monuments.

I wonder if you are planning to sell it as a kit?

Hello railroad friends

It goes on

Unfortunately, I haven't come as far as I had hoped for the last few days.

But I also have to constantly draw and coordinate parts.

So that is when I am in the workshop the printer has something to do.

I hate standing times at all.

Now for a moment to end the curiosity

How does it look like that?

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Yes, it will and I always have to motivate myself a little so that I can stick with it

There are a few small parts that have to be installed or cleaned



Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


And try again

Because it's just fun when you see how everything grows


Image

Image

Image

Image


So that's it again

Unfortunately

But it just goes step by step

Thanks for looking

Truly a FANTASTIC project! :thumbup: :thumbup:

I have the Trumpeter 1/35 kit but I would love to build one in 1/16 scale. :clap:

I have built O Scale, 1/48 brass kits but no comparison to what you've got going.

This is some build, wondering about the clear tube. Are we going to see the firebox and steam tubes etc?
