Long time no post, but I am still modeling a litte.
Here is my latest product, a scratch built 0m (22,2mm gauge, 1/45 scale):

Built entirely from wood and metal, the only plastic in the insulation in the wheels.

The wooden hopper is made with working tongue and groove boards:

The t&g were milled into regular Kappler strip wood using a CNC-router:

The underframe is made from etched nice silver:

Thanks a lot for all the kind remarks!

But a lot of the praise is due to a few manufacturers and service providers:

-PPD ltd of Scotland (http://www.ppdltd.com) that made all the very fine etchings. Check out the stencils in 0,075 mm steel:

-Prescision Wax in the uk (http://www.precision-wax.com) that 3D printed the wax masters for the brass castings on the wooden hopper

This is just an early test, the final master had a much more rational design, and was printed with an ever higher resolution.

- David Sciatica in the US (david.sciaccasbcglobal.net) that did the brass casting from the wax masters.

- Hassler Profile in Licthenstein (https://www.hassler-profile.li/) that makes the excellent turned brass rivets I use for the structural joints in the cars.

-Erik Olsen of Denmark who made the excellent fine scale wheel sets. Unfortunately, Erik no longer accepts commissions like this.

A truly international collaboration! If you consider a similar project, dont be put off by that many of the companies are foreign. As I am living in Norway, all of them are foreign to me as well! But I have had no problems using them, and Norway is not even an EU country.

Please feel to ask if you have any questions regarding the model and its construction.

So much to see on such small wagons and all of it is most excellent in construction and finish.

Hawk, I read Remembrance of Trains Past. I am going to try just plain bleach on the wood, instead of peroxide & ammonia. And see what results I get. Very interesting topics you have on there. I enjoyed reading your findings and looking at your work'...
