  • With today’s pictures, I complete the turbine building. The whole roof and some structure parts are detachable, in order to see the inside and remove the turbine covers. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbc…

  • The “3D” piping is really nasty! Each section is modeled by a simple part, with no tabs. I added a rolled paper bit inside, to make sure the pipe is reasonably round and to get decent joints. The joints are quite important because, to my surprise, many are designed to face up, instead of being hidden from view. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodell…

  • Thanks for the comments, friends :-) @ Hagen - nice to see you back! Yes, this one would look odd near the remaining architecture models. I plan to store it in another place, below the aircraft showcase. The place is not deep enough but, set at an angle, it should fit. @ Kriszme - good one I agree with you!!! With so many things assembled, it is fit to put everything together. The pipes will be next… die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c55…

  • Thanks for the comments, Christoph and Norbert :-) @ Christoph - the first picture below shows one turbine a bit closer. It still looks fair but the blade angle variation is clearly visible... @ Norbert - the bigger discs are properly cut. The smaller ones may not have the correct number of blades but that's almost impossible to spot The generator makes an interesting assembly. The large cylinder is hidden and, as I made a continuous rod, is very hard to expose again. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/in…

  • Each of the 3 turbines is made up of many blade disks separated by spacers. By cutting the blades with scissors, the blades “automatically” set at an angle. Not necessarily the good angle nor perfectly uniform. Anyway, the look is better than with plain disks. You might have guessed that the turbine assembly is hardly a pleasant task… die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d9…

  • The turbine building has a big rolling crane and a much smaller one on the not so tall part of the building. Both make interesting assemblies and a good break from the piping work. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75…

  • More details: platforms and big parts that will fit on both sides of the turbines. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf

  • The 3 turbine pits start at a slightly lower level than the main floor. When the instruction drawings are larger than the assemblies, either the first are big or the second are small. On the last pictures, it is the second case… die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf

  • The pictures show some big elements of the steam system. The smaller pipes are simply printed. For the others, the kit includes a set of parts to make 3D pipes. I’ll get there… die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf

  • A little break to take care of something easy: the main roof. It still has tabs all around but I’ll probably cut them, as the roof will be detachable to see the inside. The third picture shows something that fits below the main floor. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf

  • The doors and other apertures can be given a bit of depth by adding optional parts. It is an easy undertaking but you have to look carefully to notice any difference. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf

  • The columns on the shorter wall have small notches to take the rolling crane rail. Regarding the two smaller walls, they take a fair share of reinforcements, easy to cut and assemble. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf

  • Zitat von SY 190: „Hi Ric another amazing bird on your airfield - excellent work ! So whats next - something driven by nuclear power ? Regards Klaus “ Precisely, but it is not a plane

  • The first picture show what I assume are air-conditioning pipes.The others show the upper part of the columns, placed above a large beam that supports the main rolling crane. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf

  • You are doing a wonderful job, Fritz The kit may be old but it is very good! I saw your remark about painting the edges. For sure, it is better to do so after the glue dries completely. Don’t you find it easier to perform that task while the part is still in “2D”?

  • Thanks for the comment, Daniel :-) Yes, the model takes a lot of space! The side columns lower section can be opened (cutting the grey triangles). However, they are so small that I decided not even to try. Quite clearly, such parts would be prime candidates for an eventual laser cut set. die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf

  • The instructions suggest starting the assembly with some of the simpler buildings. I opted to start with the biggest – the turbine building. The pictures show the inside walls. You only get a glimpse of the real size by looking at the doors in a small “box” inside – top right of the first picture. The main floor level is well above the outside terrain and much detail will be added in between... die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbcc2d95d555cf die-kartonmodellbauer.de/index…c75f4c559f7bbc…

  • Thanks, Wiwo :-)

  • My next architecture model will be very different from the more common cathedrals, castles and palaces. It represents a nuclear power plant with a pressurized water reactor. As far as I know, the real thing (Olkiluoto 3) is still under construction in Finland. The model is at the relatively small scale of 1/350. Notwithstanding, it will be a large model, with a base of around 80cm x 90cm. The modeler has the choice to build the “easy” (outside only), medium and “hard” versions of the kit. The mo…

  • Thank you very much for the comments, friends :-) The next plane, being a WWII German subject, will not be shown here. But I plan to be back soon. In the meantime, I intend to start showing something in the "Architecture" section...
