this is going to be a scale model of a Vekoma mk 1212 rollercoaster train. I am building it 1:12.5
Some parts need to be fine tuned to fit together. I am going to sand it smooth and paint the parts. Several parts, like the main axle (hoofdas) and the two wheelcarrier parts, need to be glued together, for the finished product. To fit the wheels I smooth out the holes with a 3,5 mm drill.
Now I am working on the passenger harnas, and also the front and the tail off the train.
I intend to build a full train, this means a total of 7 coaches, 3 normal frames (1,2,5) 3 chaindog and anti rollback frames (3,4,6) and an end coach.
Yes it is going to be a big model. (about 1,40 m in length)
Do not yet know if I will display the train in a straight, a corckscrew or a loop.
As you can see, tail and nose are done. Nose 2 goes underneath nose 1 and you will have to adjust the body just a little bit to make it fit.
The restraining harnas is also done. Printed it with exterior support.
