|Østerport Station in lasercut cardboard. The original was built in 1897 and a 1:87 twin now resides in the customer's headquarters.|
|Aarsleff Rail 70225, a Liebherr A 924 FD, levelling ballast. The machine is 'FD' - friction drive to avoid the rubber tires touching the rails. On sections with ERTMS signalling only the rail wheels are allowed to touch the rails.|
|User's manual for a Liebherr A 900 C ZWFD. Useful for getting aquainted with how a two-way excavator works.|
|Work is progressing. 4 chassis assemblies and excavator arms painted and fitted with decals. Cab interiors to the far right.|
|Bodies and cab tops in orange ready for gloss varnish. Having recently changed from modelling in 1:35 to 1:19 scale I certainly found it a challenge to adjust to 1:87.|
|One of the excavators ready for final assembly.|
I ordered decals from my usual supplier 'Skilteskoven'. It was fun ordering decals many times smaller than I usually order for use in banners, prints and logos for vehicles.
Now my work on some 'real' models can continue. On the other hand it's been great fun to be able to utilize my modelling network in my professional career.
|Bird's eye view of the model. It's a lovely model built by a talented designer and builder. My small contribution of model excavators is not designed to draw away attention from the excusite building.|
|The model placed inside its prototype building with old photographs of Østerport Station on the wall. The model is equipped with hardwood edging, steel legs and acrylic hood.|
