It was just a strange idea ...

Hello;

before the Corona closeup i bought some new tools for modelling.
One is a proxxon jigsaw.
Then my children and I wanted to test the tools - but what to boult.
My oldest wanted to have a container flat car for 760 mm G-Scale based on a LGB Frightcar "Busch Bautzen".

I did not want to cut a new car and than we had the idea to take 5 mm MDF.

Here is the result:

And just for fun, we created another one

So, this is the way to make the exit restrictions here in Austria acceptable ;-)

Hope, at weekend we can test the cars on the garden layout

best regards and stay well
Achim

Can you post more pictures of the container flat car without the current container mock-up shown ?

Hi;

yes, the children helped very much, e.g. eating the ice-cream, so that I have some ice-cream-sticks for the railing ;-)
They also helped cutting the wooden ice-cream sticks.
Can you post more pictures of the container flat car without the current container mock-up shown ?
sure.

Here they are:

Wow. they look so good. Well done. I have modelled a layout loosely based on the Steyrtalbahn. I come over to Austria every two years to visit then off to the UK to visit my son. I love the work you have done on them. What bogies did you use. I have a LotusLok model of the SKGLB railcar Tca762, my other love.
