Re: LnR GP9 Chassis help!

I'll do that!

It's just difficult. I don't have shaky hands yet, but I also had problems with the assembly.

Re: LnR GP9 Chassis help!

The credit for the assembling goes only to Mike and perhaps his father. Possibly it could have been constructed even simpler. But it is what it is, even with the other GP models.

Re: LnR GP9 Chassis help!

I have also only reassembled it once so far. It's fiddly, but eventually, it worked. Some Blu Tack could be really helpful for the wires. I didn't get this idea at the time. Be patient!

Re: TT-Tracks

The wheel stops thus also fit on the Tillig model track and look very good. :thumbup:

Re: GE 44 Tonner etch

The GE 44ton etched board was from Carsten. Taxari can craft filigree, but not draw. :think:

That sounds like a good plan. The truck axle distance is then closer to match than with the Roco chassis.

@Taxari: Did Christian change the wheels to 7mm? For me, it looks like this.

Re: GE 44 Tonner etch

I haven't built one, but I have worked on Taxari's model. There is an N-scale Roco V90/BR 290 underneath. Carsten has built his own chassis.

I think the easier path would be the use of the N scale loco.

Re: Tillig Bedding Track Unavailable?

Tillig has a list of international retailers (here for GB and Irl), maybe one of them can get the desired bedding tracks for you.

Here also the list for overseas. I have no idea if the lists are all up to date.

Re: How does TT as an Engineering Scale work?

As a German, I answer: One foot is in TT-scale 1/10 of an inch.

For example, is the original 40 feet long, then the length on the model is 4 inches.
