    Hi, I'm from munich, Germany and I've been lurking in the shadows of this forum for some time, now. But finally I step out into the light!

    Some people here will already know me from other occasions.

    I build practically anything with some emphasis on ships, planes and railways. With occasional exceptions I build around 1/250 scale, i.e., if it's for my (not yet started, let alone finished!) Z-gauge layout, the scale will be 1/220, 1/250 in all other cases.

    Occasionally, I also design the odd model, and it was a great pleasure for me to finally have found someone who actually has built my Munich tramcar!

    It's All Fussball...,

    Hi Michi! Glad to have you aboard here. I have often wondered why more HO and N scalers don't take advantage of papermodeling in their layouts. Seems it is slowly taking hold. Seems Kartonbau is suffering from Fussball Attention Deficit Disorder (FADD)...,

    Welcome Michi !
    I would be happy to see a link to your Munich Tramcar, I love all railway cardmodels...or at least a picture will do I suppose.
    Anyway, Welcome!

    Hi woodengraver!
    No problem with the link and the picture, but, uh, oh, the thing is, it was you I referred to! Well, I've attached a photo, anyway, and the link is http://www.tram.org/fmtm/download/.

    However, there's a set of four Bavarian coaches at http://www.kartonbau.de/wbb2/thread.php?threadid=2864. The pdf file contains the parts and the zip file the instructions. I'm not sure, but I think the instructions are only in german. If babelfish doesn't help you, just tell me.

    I've also attached a picture of another of my designs. It's a locomotive of the German military light railways from the WW I era. The design is even older than the tramcar and there's at least one flaw in it (the sand domes should have an elliptical cross section, not a circular one) but if you are interested, I can put it in the parts bin (i.e. as soon as I find where I put the original files).

    Hi Gil!
    Football and a beautyful, hot summer really do the trick! But that's o.k., there will be more than sufficient bad weather for modelling in the future!

    I'm relieved! That model was very challenging! A very fun build though. It is SO NICE to correspond with the creator of that model. Thank you for that. And thank you for that extra link... I will look into it.
    Have a great day Michi !
