Chlodnia Wagon - Modelik

After a large and complex plane and small break with the Belem tower, a seemingly simple train subject makes a good contrast. The kit is yet another Modelik product. Not a locomotive but a boxy cargo wagon. It includes 629 parts, printed on 9 A3 sized pages. It also includes the usual assembly diagrams, printed on thin paper. As always, the first pictures show the kit.

I personally think that goods and passenger wagons can be as interesting a subject as locomotives, if they have enough detail and colour. And being able to make this at 1:25 gives us the ability to provide some great details without it being too big for a suitable scale for a moving model railway.

@ Siwi - you know that I don't add detail to the kits, apart from rivets on train subjects. By the way, there are many, here! That's a personal choice, only. I agree that this large scale is a good incentive to add detail. Hmm, maybe Modelik could provide cargo to fill an empty wagon...

Assembling the wheels is certainly the most repetitive task of almost all train subjects. I decided to get rid of them first. In this case, there are only 4 wheels. The assembly methods are well established. They take time and an appropriate assembly jig but there is no real difficulty.

The pictures show diverse details – brake blocks and suspension. Each brake block is a stack of card parts. To give a better look, I covered the visible curved face with spare card taken from another Modelik kit. In virtually all train kits, many parts must be reinforced with card and have printed paper on both sides of the card. The front face has the parts drawn and the back face is coloured. So, being careful, an useful amount of coloured paper can be spared…

Repetitive parts are the worst, I already have difficulty to concentrate on a left wing and a right wing, so this would be killing .
Anyway, the German words on the sides of the box car read "Royal Brewery" so that makes this a very interesting subject. I hope the beer barrels are included in the model???

Good luck Ricardo with this one.

Erik

It’s always a delight, Ricardo, to see you build rail stock!

@ Erik – Not a single one! The wagon will be desperately empty. I’m wondering if the prohibition laws applied in Europe as well
@ Fred – thanks. Nice to hear from you

The real wagon’s frame is made of U and L shaped steel parts. They are readily modelled in paper. However, much care is needed to avoid warping and putting excess glue. A lot of card cutting work, too…

Some progress, regarding the wheels and suspension assemblies.

Direct from the factory, Michael

On for the brakes! The include many wires that I always swap for rolled paper with a very thin wire inside.
