Re: Models coming

Some recent news of N scale models coming up: Minitown is apparently making progress with their BSP passenger stock – as of now, a preliminary announcement (not by Minitown themselves, though) is up on Taobao: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.10.fa274ea3AvMYUy&id=618254831364&ns=1&abb...

Re: N scale projects

Thanks... it's rather a matter of picking the right technology for each detail though... Meanwhile, the P61 are more or less finished: http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p61_200505_0.jpg http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p61_200505_1.jpg http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p61_2005...

This week, I'll work on weathering details as rust spots, rain marks, etc.

Re: N scale projects

More progress with the P61: most detail parts were installed, and the cars received black primer: http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p61_200419_0.jpg http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p61_200419_1.jpg http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p61_200419_2.jpg http://galaxy.impulzus.com/t...

Re: N scale projects

Work continues with de-burring the castings that have been sitting around for a while: http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p61_200412.jpg Next, I'll have to find something that is rigid enough to keep the underframes from warping, and weighs around 8–10 grams to get enough weight and lower the ...

Re: N scale projects

It's been a while since last time, had some really busy months at work. Also, my metal etching contact dropped out of business (gave up on etching and retained 3D printing only) which halted the boxcar projects for a while. No new etching contact yet in sight, but I did some experiments with toner t...

Re: Haidar DF4C prototypes!

Hi all, Found this subject to be closest to my question: does anyone know more about the non-standard intake screening on the engine room side walls of the DF4C prototypes (4001, 4002)? I mean the screens highlighted in these pictures: http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/df4c/4001_grills.jpg http...

Re: Models coming

So far, it went sort of unnoticed, but Minitown is making advances in modern N scale passenger stock, too: -DF11G is now available from several sellers -BSP 25T cars are in preparation. The sample cars look like a CA25T, the first China Rail dining car to hit the market in N scale. A link to the man...

Re: N scale projects

The solvent-based spray paint jobs are now finished for the DF4B: http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/df4b/df4b_190907.jpg Also, I did the castings for the HXN3 and the boxcars: http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/hxn3/hxn3_190907.jpg http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p62_190907.jpg Che...

Re: N scale projects

An update before painting continues: I took another close look at pictures of the dark red 773x that were delivered to Liuzhou depot (宁局柳段) in the mid-2000s. They lack the MU connectors which I already put on the two DF4B shells – so this time, the decision will be in favor of the 7720+7721 pair. No...
