So is his BR38. It was given new paint and larger headlamps. Voytek even managed to put in sound. It's a beauty.

To Arseny's question as to my buildings - The most challenging and time consuming is planning my little "structures".
I like building them from scratch, as this approach gives me total flexibility in selecting the theme and the placement.
Frequently I would review some old photographs relevant to the époque and geographic placement. The next step is to scale the building in 1:120 and identify the materials required for its construction. The rest is easy: the structural elements are cut out of cardboard, fastened and glued together to create the main structure. Next the texture is being applied based the look required - for these modules of the rural scenery, I used craft match sticks, Wood Craft Dowels and Auhagen windows and doors. For the roofing I use very fine eg 400 sandpaper. Using cardboard as a base of construction makes the structure strong and resilient. Using Crafter's Acrylic the paint job comes next, and when the building looks fresh and pretty I go about messing it bad... so it looks weathered and old. Now it belongs!



As to my Locos - BR 38, I equipped it with sound and repainted it to resemble polish locomotives. I did a full conversion on my BR 56 and made it into Tr 6.

Thanks, I saw a Peresvet crane many years ago it was a little bit different. This is like my home made one, the original was an Ardelt/Germany crane from 1930-ies.
