Let me see, A whole lot of frustration happened on my workbench today. See my post about the LGB 65000 unit
Put the camera(lens!) in the middle/center of the wagon?So having looked at the "camera wagon" thread, and not liked my own videos of going around the track, i thought i would dabble.
Having "bench tested" the wagon, one issue I found, and have notice in general, when you push a wagon around a circuit the lead bogie want to go straight, so NOT driving the camera mount. I had suspected this may occur, and in anticipation I have ordered a "bogie steering" kit as described in "Installing LGB Container Wagon Wheel Set Control Kit" from Germany, this should cure that issue.
So where is the video? well the camera I have is a clone (so I found out) and the video is terrible, and the sound is completely out of sync hence my thread "which camera" though still not made my mind up.
So the uprights were all cut using a Plumbers Cheeto Pipe Cutter like below, these give a good square cut that supports itself when soldering to the base plate. What I do is a little flux on the end, drop in a little bit of solder then put a pair of pliers in the top to stop my pinkies getting burnt then heat up with a Cooks Blow Torch till solder emerges round the edges. Remove blow torch and wait till solder dulls then it should be set. All has been heated up on heat protection Matt and blocks. These things will take a full blown silver solder torch full heat and just glow a little red where the flame is. Hope that is what you were asking.To Dunnyrail,
Do you have a trick to get all sub-assemblies in the same plan, flat.
I am very interested by your water supply tower construction .
