Not really a club topic, maybe one day, but one of the Hungarian N-gaugers started to build T-trak modules and shared some photos with me about the module building process, so I share the pictures with you. It is a little bit different approach in the making of the modules, we will see how it will works. The height of the module is the usual 70 mm, the thickness of the wood is 10 mm, the size of the module is the 'old' 308*210 mm, the same as we are using. At this moment he is not planning Japanese theme, but who knows what will happen later. Or at least within a few month we will have a nice T-trak layout with plenty of Hungarian, Japanese and British modules mixed together and we can run different trains just for fun. :)

Ist,

Nice! Always interesting to see all the variations on building modules!

Simple and sturdy!

Love the little spring loaded corner clamps!

Cheers

And I was wrong, this is a double module which is wider, so not the 210 mm one. But anyway, more and more T-trak modules are coming.

There will be a big show next month. Sadly only the Hungarian and DDR layouts are going.

Hi All!

 

A little progress on the station. I sprayed the first layer on the station building my new compressor and i made the area around the station from styrol.

Attached File  IMG_20161030_181506.jpg   163.55KB   5 downloads

 

I soldered new wire contacts, because the first contacts was very bad-looking, and fixed the ballast some places. Laid down tracks two more modules, so just one left from the whole station. I widened the modules up to 210mm, and i’m planning the heights up to 70mm for another later project.

I have to build a new ramp because the first is wrong. I would like to a bit similar looking to the real, but  just a little J.

 

Now I’m thinking about to i can’t find the yellow and yellow/black stripe type of railing fence, so i have to build some scratch but i haven't got idea what should from do that.

Here some pics at the moment of the station looking with Yokosuka E217 and EF-64 Eneos tanker train:

Hi All!

 

The last one month i did the followings:

 

I made the station starcaise from platform to the station building:

 

Attached File  IMG_20161109_200713.jpg   264.8KB   4 downloadsAttached File  IMG_20161109_201257.jpg   279.34KB   5 downloadsAttached File  IMG_20161120_125522.jpg   182.04KB   4 downloads

 

From the kit other starcaise i modified to the overpass:

The overpass construction is almost done, i need some repairs yet, but i sprayed that because i want to see how looks like J

 I sprayed the new platform sections, unfortunatelly i miss the stripe measured the side of the platform and I think the platform color is too dark. I used the same color as the roads, but i think i need to re-spray a lighter color not just the platform, the roads also. I'm waiting a package from PJ it's include a station platform, when it's arrive i'll check the colors and if it's too different i'll sprayed all of the platforms to the correct tone:

From the Greenmax road sign set i made the signs what i need the area of the module:

Hi!

 

Me again :)

 

I got my package from PJ and I checked the platform color, my platform color looks like good, but i ordered the Kato old platform, and i saw the modern platform maybe has a lighter skin than the old platform. So I think, I should re-spray my platforms a lighter tone.

 

I decided the station left side (opposite the roadside) change to open, because the real station hasn’t got wall this side, pictures later.

 

I made drainage pipes for the overpass and preshading the straircase surfaces with some rust layers:

Modified the Kato platform roof section, i would like to use on my platforms with a scrathbild section the station two ends.

The fitting test:

This is the first prototype roof section, the height and width i think ok but it’s pretty long than i need, because i forgot deduct the normal roof section size. The roof made 1mm styrol and i scribed 283 lines:

That's a whole lot of scribing ;-)  since I see an Evergreen bag on your workbench, you didn't consider using one of their patterned sheets?

 

That shade of blue looks very good with the reddish-brown ballast.

Those are really nice details on the overpass! Good to see that you are making a steady progress and i really hope that sometime in the future we could connect all japanese modules and build a nice layout together.

Hi velotrain!

 

The scribing was two days J

Basically i use Evergreen when i need profiles (rod,pipe, H/I beams etc..) I saw the boards at my local store but one sheet (15x30cm) about 12 dollar, i have 2 sheet styrol from art supply store one-one sheet 0,5mm 100x200cm and 1mm 70x100cm and together it was about 11 dollar J

I tried to closely for these (google maps):

Coromant

Hi Coromant -

 

No, I would wait for them to fix it ;-)

 

I'm sure that when the older sections of the roof need repainting, they will make it blue to match the new platform-end roofs!

 

You are ahead of the prototype!
