I must have a re-read of your original thread on these Max.  I'm slightly older now and have picked up a bit more "know how" so it might sink in a bit deeper than it did last time.  In those days, "relay" meant taking stuff off a table then putting it back...............:oops:

It certainly looks very neat. :thumbs

Thanks, Peter.

And it works; surprisingly.  :lol:

It's a bit frustrating having to wait for the bits, but once the couplers arrive I should be able to get into production.

Inching along with the build.  I hadn't realised how much detail there is in one of these hoppers.

This is the A end.



It is square.  Just the parallax.

Yeah, hoppers are fairly detailed. But at least in O scale details are a bit less fiddly and you've got more options as far as means of adding rivet detail goes.

Hi Max,

Gotta 'ave wivets. Unless it's all welded (in which case you need some weld seams).

I used to punch all of mine (I even have a ModelSmith with an O punch and die gathering dust), these days I use the decals.

Life's too short to drill holes and stick several hundred wivets on, a strip of wivet decals takes all of 5 seconds. Archer do a hopper car rivet set. Not sure whether windows come as a decal though. The mutins do. Plus they do micro-weld beads. Highly recommended range of products.

Well, you at least wouldn't have to drill holes with the method I was thinking of, which is gluing the heads of straight pins or tiny nails on and snipping the shanks off, filing what's left if needed. But it would still be a bit tedious.

I've also heard of a rivet-detail tool known as a riveting wheel, a few different companies (Micro Mark and Vintage Reproductions to name a couple) make them.

Hi Brendan,
They are pounce wheels, notorious for wavy lines of rivets. Only work with thin brass or styrene.

Ah. Well, that works out for Max because he's making these out of styrene.

After 4 weeks waiting for Brunel Hobbies to supply the couplers, I've cancelled my order and ordered them from P&D Hobby Shop in the US.

They will work out at about A$9.00 each once the postage is added to the exchange rate.

Anyway, I've done a bit more.  It's hard to light a white styrene model.



I'd better start working on the lid.

Oy, waiting forever for shipping is so aggravating... I once had that happen with an eHattons order (turned out to be because they still hadn't received a new stock of Hornby's Super Detailing Pack, so I had to drop that from the order)

Hi Max,

Ribs, didn't see that one coming. Looking very nice - I like the hopper chute mechanisms/levers. Are you adding a brake cylinder?

Nigel

Thanks, Nigel.

The brake cylinder is in the photo in the 20th post, mounted above the floor.
