    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Li'l Gypsy Wagon - Kitbash
    Li'l Gypsy Wagon





    This one has one of the best examples of box art you'll ever see and that has always attracted me magically...


    I have tried for years, to get hold of one of those things, of course, in order to build it!

    ... unfortunately without success, most were already gone, or the deals blew up to much my Budget...


    As it happens in life, you often see the trees, but not the forest...


    So I decided to build my own:
     


    The project is not finished yet, I still build a diorama, but the vehicle as such, it is complete, here are the Pictures:

    Thank you very much!
     
     
     
    This build is already finished...


     
     
     
    I will post soon the pictures in the finished section.
     
    I'm also on building a Dio, but, well, hmm, yes, that might take some more time...

    Thank you all for the kind words, I appreciate that very much!
     
    As a modeler, you must always keep your eyes open for such things. 

    If we look a second time, these turn out to be true treasures...
     
    The only disturbing thing is, the time it is applied to search,  Things that you know exactly how they should look, and that they are also available somewhere, but just then, they are nowhere to be found...  
    Just like these three things for the planned dio... ... it has taken an eternity to find this, and again as long to keep it in the hands...     There is still much to do...

    Thank you, Dave!
     
     
    Now, such a build retreat to the length, and never seem to be ready...

    ... but, where is the fun factor?

    Sometimes, much more fun are the heavy paths and the journey is the destination...
     
    Green = Leek, comes from a PLAYMOBIL®- set
    Rosy = Flower, comes from another PLAYMOBIL®- set
    Yellow = Hat, comes from a Kinder Egg- Gimmick figure
    White = a piece of polystyrene

     
     

    I let the pictures speak...



     
     

    Well, yes, the flower pot, I could quickly make it on the lathe...
    ... but, where is the fun factor?
     
    Here's a possibility if you have no lathe on Hand...

    The hat loses his sun protection...

     
     

    This is an inner rim...

     
     

    I need only this ring...

     
     

    ... and it fits...

     
     

    ... composition...

     
     

    ... a little Color...

     
     

    ... and at its final place...

     
     

    Hope, you like it.

     First, i tried to connect this holder with a superglue, but, it always broke down again... Then I have it's stuck with a two-part adhesive, after two days in this position:     
    ... and with a little paint over it...

    Here is another part of the Chuck Wagon kit...    
    ... mounted...    
    ... and a bit of color...     I did not like the original tank, the one from the Beer Wagon kit fits much better... http://www.showrods.com/showrod_pages/beer_wagon.html    
    ... and mounted...

    The assembly of the chimney pipe to the oven...



     
     

    ... a little color and mounted, the lower part is simply...

     
     

    ... the upper part must be done only after the install of the cottage...

    That the oven makes some sense, must be installed a chimney pipe...  I've tried a few things, but just this, looked good... 
    ... plastic drinking straws!
    Whatever the reason, (too old?) all of these ripped when I turned around a little bit...    
    ... only the yellow remained flexible, two pieces are needed, along with a "pipe cleaner"...    
    ... cut to the required length...    
    The idea is that the tubes remain dimensionally stable through the pipe cleaner...

     The front light... 
    The back side of the support is hollow...    
    ... I fill it out with white glue...    
    This end of a necklace is perfect as holder of the lantern...     
    ... oh yes, the lantern, this part is of the Ricksha kit... http://www.showrods.com/showrod_pages/ricksha.html     
    ... and as a complete, new part, the frontligt...    
    Hope, you like it.

     This is from a colander, it is made of aluminum...     
    From a small piece of it, I cut out a round one...      
    I have a few marbles in different diameters. [    
    I can now rounding the part, through push the part with this marble and my fingers...     
    So it looks finished and mounted...     
    ... and so the whole...    
    Hope, you like it.

    Now I devote a little time to adjust the exhaust pipes.  First, open up, or rather, I cleen out the Ends...    
    Here are all with matt black painted Ends...     
    I have trouble with these kits to mount the eight exhaust pipes, all right, and in row, also, if I all, first mount to the small plates and then to the engine...  
    Especially not enough for me, that little hump...     
    So, I have done the following steps:         Especially now I can plug in each individual, twist, turn and set it in the desired angle without it drops immediately...

    Thank you very much!
     
     
    I find, that the wheelbase of the rear axle, is too close to the exhaust pipes.
     
    I extended the drive shaft, so I moved it back about 5 mm...

     
     
     

    So it looks now...
