This is VERY high quality model building.

Hi Ricardo, I've built a few trains recently and a lesson learned was to not glue the wheels on the axles yet during the build, only after having prepared a stretch of rails. In that way I could align the flanges properly in between the rails after completion of the entire locomotive or carriage. Indeed, it's important to consider paper thickness of the flange assembly.
In any case, your build looks impeccable, as usual !

Cheers,
Erik

Thanks, Don. Glad to have you in this thread

@Erik – good point but it may not be enough in this case! The problem here is that the locomotive’s wheels are outside the main structure – you cannot reduce the gauge. The wagon’s wheels are inside the suspension assemblies, which are aligned to the longitudinal structural parts. On picture 15, you can see that the wheel hub consists of a small cylinder on either side of the part that materializes the 6 spokes. The outer cylinder is flush with the suspension and cannot be moved outward. So, it is easy to get a small gauge (just move the wheel inside, along the axle) but the upper gauge limit depends on the relative position of the spoke part and the outer wheel parts. With the parts provided in the kit, the spoke part should be on the same plane as the wheel flange. If the outer hub cylinder was thinner by 2mm, the spoke part could/should be moved outward 2mm, too and be placed more or less at the middle of the rolling surface.

A big “plus” of this kit is that the model is colorful! The closed wagon is grey, the open one is brown, the passenger cars are mostly blue, the locomotive is mostly black but with red parts and some embellishments.
The pictures show the closed wagon main walls. They took a fair share of rivets. Be careful when assembling the parts on top of the door openings. They should have the exact length, otherwise the floor would be curved and would not fit the wheeled frame.

The sliding doors are cute assemblies, and the rivets enhance the look. The locks are free to rotate.

That looks very neat. Nice to see the height differences, that makes the looks of the model by far more attractive (and realistic)!

Good luck with outlining the wheels.....

Erik

@Erik - Sometimes, I increase the thickness of some parts just to get a better view, even if it is not to scale.
The third picture shows an effective way to make a regular curvature for the roof. The longitudinal half cuts in the card create fold alignments and, as there are many, it looks like the roof is really curved. The roof top part was added only after the base roof part was glued to the walls.

Thanks, Michael
The last construction pictures of this wagon show the couplers, still without the chain links, and the pretty lanterns.

That's a beauty! And now on to a more complicated carriage, to build up the suspense ?

Cheers,
Erik

Watching this develop is taking my breath away.
