Scale Model Pictures

Here you can find a few pictures and info regarding my model building activities. Most of the models are created in cooperation with my father. The two trucks are built from construction kits from Wedico. The steam engine is manufactured by Wilesco. We have found it on a flea market and had to modify and partly rebuild it. The two truck trailers and the speedboat are build from scratch without a construction kit.

The two truck trailers have one special thing in common: We have implemented a mechanical forced stearing system for the rear axes, so that the trailers can go around very sharp curves. The steering angle of the rear axes is only controlled by the angle between truck and trailer and only controlled mechanically. We have also tried to implement an electronic steering system, but that has shown to be not as robust as needed.
