A train consisting of a locomotive with a tender car, napep-ing tanks and trucks built in the circle of railway modelling road station of young technicians of the North-Caucasian railway. Did his younger students under the guidance of V. M. lositsky..
These models are easy and can be made and the school technical circle or in circles of technical modeling young technicians ‘ stations.
Drawings and patterns of bulk tanks and trucks is not given, and we offer these parts to do it yourself.
The necessary tools and materials — millimetric ruler, a pencil, a compass, jigsaw, file, needle files, sandpaper, paint. The figures show the dimensions of the connecting grooves and joints for plywood with a thickness of 3 mm, if the plywood is thicker, it will change accordingly the sizes (scale 1 : 2).
To make a locomotive boiler and the tank body, it is necessary first of all to carve, or a mandrel corresponding to the diameter of the boiler and the tank shell. The stock size for the boiler of a steam locomotive 220X134 mm. Then it is wrapped in a thick paper or thin cardboard in two or three layers. Before gluing the cardboard lightly moisten and allow it to dry on the mandrel, then glue, and sanded after gluing cylinder paint.
Locomotive drawbar, chimney, floodlight, whistle produce respectively the dimensions in the drawing from any caught by hand material: celluloid, cardboard, wetmanski paper. The roof of the car and the booth of the locomotive made from cardboard or plywood with a thickness of 1 mm.
For bonding parts of the model train, you can apply PVA glue (polyvinyl acetate emulsion), nitrocellulose lacquer NC-551 (emalit). The same letters show locations of joints.
The railroad can be made of particle Board, sleepers — plywood or sheet polystyrene, rails pine slats 3X5 or 4×4 mm or sheet polystyrene.
Model trains, consisting of locomotive, passenger cars, tanks and trucks and are made of different materials: wood, plywood, — before painting you need to process a file or a needle file and emery paper. Burrs and cracks to fill with glue.
Then proceed to painting. The brush should be kept at an angle of 45-50° to skrashivalo surface. Movement in the brush must be light, free. Covering the model with oil paints, brush strokes are usually applied first by length, then across and over the length. With the need to ensure that the paint will lay down a uniform thin layer without streaks. Oil paint is usually put in 2-3 layers. Each subsequent layer is applied after drying the previous one.
Recommended color models: the locomotive with the tender, boiler, flue, suchoparek, the frame of the locomotive, tender, carriage, step, buffer plates, the front area of the engine and the inner surface of the wheels, deck, stairs, platform black; bandage (rim) of the wheels of the train — white; the wheels and the front beam of the locomotive — red; side platform of the locomotive box of the driver side part of the cylinder, tender, hatches, train — green; tightening the hoops of a locomotive boiler and spotlights cover the bronze paint; the roof of the car and the booth of the machinist — gray or dark brown; decorative longitudinal stripes of car — yellow.
The window of the car glue on the inner side polyethylene clear film and paint the inside with white paint. simulating window blinds.
