As it turned out, my train model of the E94 Krokodil, for my friend, was the incorrect loco. wall1 http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=172995 It is actually the Baureihe 6/8 version. More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crocodile_(locomotive) Anyway, my friend is more than happy with his model, but I decided to compensate a little and give him a 'little brother' for his model. I found the model on the net designed by Martin Weger in 1:87 scale. I also downloaded the paper tracks to build at the same scale. I'll include that build in this thread too. We shall start with the (correct) loco. All the major parts are laminated (where neccessary), scored, cut out, pre-folded and edge coloured.. The hatch doors on both 'noses' were laminated in place. I used 120 gsm stock for the pantographs, and started cutting and forming them. Once I am happy with both, I will soak them in ca glue to strengthen them up. All the sub-structures for the center cab section were assembled 'in the flat' where possible, ready for final assembly. I felt that the 160 gsm card stock I was using was too thin to represent the thickness of the wheels, so I cut out a spare copy of the model and used the wheel pattern in reverse and laminated it to the back, to give the wheel pattern on the back (better than white), and also thicken the wheels. (See first photo.) I lined up everything perfectly by using my light box while gluing. Then, (why oh why did I decide to do this...:cry I started to cut out the white wedges between the spokes of the wheels..... That will take me some time..... More later..
