My outcome from the Leipzig fair

My outcome from the Leipzig fair

Postby jpachl » Sat Oct 31, 2015 4:46 pm

In October 2015, I visited the 'modell - hobby -spiel' fair in Leipzig, Germany. There, I could purchase some Russian prototype TT scale (1:120) equipment, e.g., the new gasoline tank car made by Hädl, an Ural truck from Günsel, and a set of so-called middle containers. Middle containers were a standardized container system used in the former Eastern Block countries. They were based on metric measures and not compatible with international intermodal containers. After having returned home, I used these models for a small photo scene in a chemical plant environment.

Alex - when I click anyway on the X in the missing image, for me it opens the Flicker album - and my Mac does not always play nice with outside sources. :boohoo: Try it.

Joern - beautiful images!! :clap: :clap:

Please, try again. Seems that the picture disappeared after I edited it in Flickr. It should work now.

After having made a new baseboard for photo settings, I can now show most of my Russian tank car collection in one picture.

Jorn, you have created a very high standard for yourself. Because of this I have to criticize the truck in front. Some light weathering on its tank would go a long way to making it fit in.

Will keep this in mind for the next use of this truck. Actually, there is already some slight weathering on the truck tank. Maybe due to matt gray color, it is not so clearly to be seen compared with the other parts of the track.

It just looks too uniform in color.
