locomotive

  • One of my German friends asked me a couple weeks ago if I could scratchbuild for him two post war German trains. His order was quite difficult for me, because my knowledge about DB trains is unfortunately close to nothing. He sent me some drawings and that’s how these two beauties were born. Painting the thin stripes around the body was true pain [...]

    This is a brand new set I am working on. Three German diesel locomotives – two axle  WR 200 B 14, three axle 360 C 14 and four axle 550 D 14. They were widely used by Wehrmacht during the Second World War.

    Today I want to show you my brand new model. This is a common Polish diesel locomotive SM42 nicknamed “Stonka”  (Potato Beetle). It was designed in FABLOK in early 60ties and was produced about thirty years as a light passenger locomotive or as a switcher/shunter.

    Recently I recieved a couple of e-mails with the same question – How to paint such small models?. I’m going to use my last Soviet engines to show you very quick and easy way to solve this problem. First step – the basic colours. I used acrylics from Vallejo and small brush. Than I put some “German Grey” shades all over the model. [...]

  • Kriegslocomotives are done, so it’s time for their counterparts. First one is type “E” (0-10-0) – built in enormous numbers in Germany (AEG, Hanomag, Borsig, Henschel and many others), Sweden (NoHab), Soviet Union and after the war also in Poland and Czechoslovakia. The second one is type “Su” (2-6-2). These two locomotives were true workhorses of the Soviet Railways. Here are some pictures of [...]

    Here it is – the second version of the famous BR52. This time with Vanderbilt tender and small smoke deflectors. Right behind the locomotive you may see the brand new “Bromberg” wagon. Tommorow I am starting the update of the site.

    German locomotive BR 52 was built in hudge numbers during the Second World War. It was less complicated than pre war constructions and built using less expensive materials. In the post-war years the 52s were used by many European countries. Some of them left the Germans, but many others were built in considerable numbers thanks to modified plans.

    For one of my German clients I am finishing a “special order”. Quite small but beautiful locomotive built for a local railway line between Murnau and Oberammergau. This is the last and the most powerfull piece (from the batch of five) made in 1930 and named “Adolphine”.

    I’ve just finised four prussian steam locomotives – P8, G8, G12 and T9. After the First World War these types were very common across the whole Europe. In some of the countries they were operational till the late 70ties. As a size reference I used an old BR55, my dearest friend from the early childhood.
