Doug - no, no delamination at all.

My guess is delamination may occur due to paper quality (as opposed to thickness) - unless the parts are tiny and the paper very very thick.

I also spray all my models with varnish prior to cutting out and assembly, and I am sure that the varnish really helps. Whether the print method also makes a difference I am uncertain, but it could - commercial models are generally litho, and nowadays also increasingly laser printed, and even with paper that is extremely thick, I have not had delamination.

The paper thickness of the Millimodel is similar to Micromodels - 160grm (about 40lb bond/ledger), which is not really that thick.

---------------------

Incidentally Doug, models I have printed are always laser printed as well, and again here no delamination.

Vinalssergio155, Don and Yeti - thank you!

Don and Yeti - thank you for also your comments also in the historical information. It makes bashing it out worth the effort!

Yeti - yes the scale is close to Z gauge. If I am happy with the eventual outcome I may invest in the Preiser Z unpainted railway figure pack (88500) and make a small diorama - which is how I like to display my models, even if the diorama is very simple with one or two figures. I do not think the difference in scale will be that noticeable, especially as people vary in height!

Oh wow! This takes me back to my early Micromodel days. Thanks, Kevin.

Welcome!

With my health the mess it is now it is not likely that I will be contributing any model build threads but I still want to contribute useful things to the people here, and it looks like references is the thing I can contribute.

Philip - I actually also am working on the restoration of an old original micromodel, with a view to making it. I also have had another one I hauled out of my stash (another original) that is good enoi\ugh to just copy and then make. Both are not trains!

Will post something when I get around to them - I actually find there is still quite an interest in these models.

southwestforests - I sent you a PM, which see...

Loco Coal Wagon - last stages!

On to the final stages…

Picture 1 – This shows the body with Axlebox Assembly now attached.

Picture 2 – The wagon underside touched up at this stage with watercolours, with the wheels waiting to go on.

Picture 3 – The underside complete.
In this picture...
  • I have now attached the Headstocks at either end on the underside.
  • The buffer heads are cut out and by my finger.
  • I have started sanding a toothpick to make the buffers themselves. Still a bit more sanding.
Picture 4 – Here the buffers and buffer heads are now attached. They are still drying in this picture, and after I took the photo I straightened them up as they set.

Picture 5 and 6 – To complete the model assembly, the stanchions need to be glued to each end – these are indicated by the red arrows in Picture 5. I pre-painted the edges before attaching them.

PART 2 below is a continuation of this section of the build.

Finished Loco Coal Truck

PART 2

The last step is to now touch up the coal wagon...
  • I filled a few gaps with PVA glue.
  • The odd areas were then touched up with black and grey watercolour.
  • The coal load also got a light dry brushing with the same grey paint used on the wagon.
  • I will respray the finished item with varnish, but this can wait until I have other items to spray as well - the varnish will even the colours out where I have touched up and it will look far better!
Pictures 1 to 3 show the finished coal wagon ready to haul coal around the L & Y!

Next will probably be the low sided wagon – a similar build.

That's a fine, business-like mineral wagon, Kevin!

I look forward to seeing the next item of rolling stock take shape.

Don
