Diary for RL "Giuseppina"

Post  pemco on Tue 10 Mar 2015, 10:57 am

Dear forum members and interestet parties

work on the new Burrell DCC road loco modell has allready begun. I placed my order a few month ago and the frist kit has arrived in two boxes. But nice one by one: My name's Marco, live in Switzerland, i'm 35 jears old and a steam enthusiast. Please forgive if creep write errors into my diary records Embarassed . (It's googles fault, not mine Twisted Evil )

Begun with cutting beams, see fotos below:



and so on



counted: started with ten fingers, ended with the same amount and leght of fingers..



hopefully counted and measured correctly - two times cut off and still too short  Wink





slowly created something





Time is running..



In this spray booth i'll paint all the parts. With that cabine all painted parts can dry with ease and without contact from dust and fingertips..
Hope you've enjoy the first record, others will follow - surely some questions too.

Hi Marco

I see your not far from where I go to work sometimes, Tiengen just across the border in Germany. You will have fun on the hills where you live with your engine.

Prost

Start on Kit 1

Post  pemco on Wed 18 Mar 2015, 2:16 pm

Dear all
two weeks ago I received a small box from a gentle delivery men. The second box was delivered a few days later. How I can describe my feelings Question  Yupii - lets start whit the built cheers

Here I send some pictures with the progress:



With a angle grinder, wire brush, sandpaper and lapping mat cleaned all production traces.



I was doubting: should i grind all the tinder? Tinder seem to be hard enough to be a good surface for the primer paint  Rolling Eyes  Is it?



These small defects on the surface have to be rectified with filler.



trial assembling - a front wheel takes shape.  Cool







@Lynn: oh i'll enjoy every minute of the built - read all about your built --> big compliments!

@Brian: thats about 40 mins. We actualy live in a small "valley" surrounded from small hills.  Maybe too steep Twisted Evil


kind regards

Marco

Marco

Don't worry about hills, these engines have lots of power, check out Blackbeard's videos on here, most climbs were in top gear too. Coming down is the more dangerous part but with the right gear selected it is easy. I am more than willing to show you how when your engine is finished.

Addicting movie

Post  pemco on Fri 20 Mar 2015, 1:51 pm

Hi Brian

What a great trip/movie. The stomping sound of your Blackbeard is addictive  Cool

When my machine is ready we'll climb up the "mills valley", thats next where I live. The vally is at the narrowest point quite deep - the sound echoes incredible..  Very Happy
At the top is a good pub (we say restaurant ;-) ) pirat

Cheers, thank you for the links

Front wheels

Post  pemco on Mon 24 Aug 2015, 11:45 am

Hi all

a few more pictures about the progress on the front wheels and perch/front axle and spring.

Hope you'll enjoy it.

The white colour layer is primer. This is a "one stop" product: Primer for rostproofing and filling. Comes out with a quite rough surface. This is a good preparation for the next layer of colour. I use a 2K Silicone Enamel product in spray quality. This product is divided into two different products: Undercoat and topcoat.

The undercoat has a higher viscosity than the topcoat. The two layer of undercout (I spray all coats) have a filling function too. So the primer I can use only for anti rost protection. cyclops

So and now pictures:



As you see, the undercoat layers are mat, however, the topcoat layer is gloss, even if the original engines were probably not so shiny Cool





What you see there is the first application of topcoat. Unfotonately, the second went awry affraid  I (stupidly) dilute the topcolour.. Evil or Very Mad, unfortunately, the colour manufacturer senselessly had pointed out on the paint can that the color is ready for use.  Twisted Evil

The next layer on the wheels, looked like a skin from a 112 year old person.. What a Face  lol!

SANDING cheers

all the best

Lining on Front Wheels

Post  pemco on Fri 30 Oct 2015, 2:02 pm

Did some lining on the front wheels. The lines have been drawn with a brush. I did not spray the lines. If I had sprayed them, this meant that I had to cover a lot What a Face

See the pictures

Cover with tape for the lines




The cover for the lines comes from "pinstripinguk.com" - in Switzerland are this "Finesse Pinstips" not available.



Good product! No. F-54  Arrow  result





Tweezers is a good instrument to peel of the upper film Very Happy  thanks to that advice somwhere in this forum Cool


Cheers

Font Wheel

Post  pemco on Sun 01 Nov 2015, 12:31 pm

Hello there

front wheel off from any tape.





Lined both sides off the wheel out. May someone ask: the inner side of the wheel is out of sight - not necessary to line the spokes cheers YOU ARE RIGHT!
I planed to line the outer side and what did I? pirat

Cheers

Fine job so far but your colour scheme intrigues me, what colour is your engine going to be?

Hi Brian

thanks for the words of appreciation Very Happy

Colour scheme is going to be one "free from a paragon". Inspiration tooked from this i guess unique picture i found on the net.



Hope this shows the scheme: Wheels light brown, boiler dark blue, "tecnical parts black, red or polished metal. Lining in light blue and on nice spots with gold leaf. cheers
Does somebody know who's engine that is? Like it a lot Smile

Cheers

Hornplate fit..

Post  pemco on Tue 08 Dec 2015, 7:29 am

Hello Forum

realy hope that you like the dairy enties Cool

Have a question about fitting the housing (Kit10) to the hornplate. Does the housing easily slip into the provided hornplate-opening? Or is it more a press fit Question

Thanks you in advance for sharing your experience with me Very Happy  

See the situation on the pix below:

Snug fit

Post  Steve Traill on Tue 08 Dec 2015, 8:15 am

You might need to adjust the hole a fraction with a dremel & a sanding drum wheel. Just roll it around evenly until it's a snug fit, you shouldn't have to press it in & also you don't want a loose fit. The laser cutting is pretty acurate but some adjustment is usually necessary to get a good fit. Those little sanding drums are very useful but be careful as they can take away quite a bit of metal sometimes!

Yes I concur with Steve. Run round with a rotary sanding drum and get a nice fit.

Thank you Lynn & Steve Razz

I'll give a gentle run with a sand drum and check the fit after every turn. Post fotos from the progress on that case.

Greetings

Dear Forum

happy new year Very Happy to all. Hope that the new year will be as good as last year - I'm really happy with the progress on my RL. Thank you, dear STW for your efforts Very Happy

The fitting of the housing gave me grey hair rabbit Thanks to the advice I could continue to work.  Very Happy

On every turn with the drum lapping tool I checket the correct fitting. Once I was very close to an optimal fit, I paint engeneering blue on the inside of the hole on the hornplate



The uncolored spot shows me, where I have to lap a bit more. The fit is now not too close and not too far cheers But see the pictures:









On one thread i have to finish the thread - easely made cheers and the bold find its way Cool

Chears
