TTCE: German Freight Shunting

4 posts in this topic

ENTERED

After weeks of waiting, I got the parts for my entry in. the sad thing was my printer broke a few days before, so no decals for me. :cry_sad: Anyway, here's my entry. I got the idea based on the 80's 12V starter sets (7735 comes to mind), but with a more modern and adult styled train with few studs visible and various techniques that are rarely used (Plate-built Boxcar doors, for example).

The engine, based on a small German Shunter, has doors which open to reveal the engine compartments on the sides.

The gondola had opening doors as well, and features a coal releasing gimmick comparable to the coal car from the RC Cargo Train.

The Refrigerator Car is my favorite part of the set, as the corrugated sides and opening doors pop out, bringing a nice texture to the car.

This tanker car contains the motor, which can lead the train to go rather fast due to its low weight. It was originally going to have a set of Esso stickers on the sides, but said to say, my printer broke.

This was a fun build to work on, and this contest has led to a lot of interesting entries to come about. Good luck for whoever wins the contest!

:sceptic: I think this is the wrong text for the picture, or the other way around afcourse.

Anyhow, nice MOC, good combination of a complete freight train. The Refrigerator car but also the Gondola are looking very well. The small details like the opening doors give it the finishing touch :thumbup:

Some small advice would be to make some new pictures in daylight. Your pictures are very dark and blurry, which disallows us to have a detailed look. I think the whole combination would look even better if you make some shots during daytime.

You fixed the pics, great job :thumbup:

Now we can see all the details of your MOC's

Still like the gondola most. Refridgerator car looks a bit heavy with the thick black roof.

Like what you did with the tanker and built in the motor, I didn't even notice the first time. Well done
