Sd.anh.116 famo trailer


I
got this Christmas along with the laser cut parts. I had an
overwhelming urge to start this over the Sherman. Only I received an
incomplete set of laser parts.for which I'm still waiting for the
missing parts these are some of the internal wheel formers and the
vertical parts of the main I beams.

But
I had to get the bug out of my system so I started on some parts that
were sort of stand-alone and didn't need any of the laser cut items.
Mainly the printing was okay but there is a page that is printed in mirror image and one page just slightly out of key.

I
started off making the drawbar part 12 mainly this when together well,
apart from part 12e which is the ring hitch this has a tapered white
triangle that goes in side the towbar frame this was too thick by the
thickness of the card to fit in the frame. Also the grey coloured strip
went round the edge of the ring was too short I got this in half and
inserted a piece in the middle. I also needed to add a bit more thinking
to parts 12f .

I
then moved on to make up part 11 which is the towbar pivot this allows
the towbar to turn the front bogey wheels as well as letting the towbar
pivot up and down. All the parts apart from 11e which was too short were
okay.

I also made a start on some of the fabricated metal parts.

slightly better picture of the towbar and its swivel and two metal parts some locking pins and the steering wheel rim.

Thanks Brauncolt and Eskatee
Felt like doing a bit more of the trailer on Easter Monday afternoon, so
I did part one the front frame of the front bogey.no real problems
apart from having Polish instructions.although I did leave off some edge
pieces as they were a bit thicker than the edges I had. The raised
parts on the back needed to be laminated onto the same thickness card as
the model is printed on, which seemed to be thinner than the edges
provided so I left them off and coloured them in. I used the Derwent
watercolour pencil number 40 seems to be a good colour match. Two
pictures front and back

Over the Jubilee weekend I got fed up of just
cutting out Sherman track, I wanted to make something. So I put all the
bits of Sherman track that were littering the cutting mat into pots and
in a cardboard tray and got out the famo trailer cardboard tray.
Started
off with parts no 2 which are the two side members of the front bogey
unit these where fairly straightforward to put together the only part
that needed some trimming was 2c this was the outer strip that wrapped
around the edge of the part but it did need cutting so that the white
areas lined up in the right place for the springs to fit on later.the
first picture shows the completed parts left and right and the two hooks
that I will fix on when I fix the sides to the front piece number one.

before doing the sides to the front I cut out a made up the two u channels and two plates that are part three.

as
these go across the middle I could now be released in place along with
part two on the sides as shown in the next couple of pictures




next
was part four and formed the two front struts that hold the trailer bed
to the bogey these also went together well and only needed a small
amount of trimming to fit between the two part three beams.




well
I thought I was a nice role and things are going well so I moved on to
part five and then it started to go downhill part 5F left and right
didn't have all their score lines printed on them and they then needed
quite a bit of trimming to get them to fit satisfactorily onto part one I
also found that I had to stick some nuts on the back of part one that
are part of part 10 before I put 5F in place with 5e I left 5G of for
the moment it fixes to 5F And part 10.



I
then moved on to part 6 this went together well the only drawback was
the fact that the part was shown in the instructions on its own and was
not shown where it actually went very well.luckily I Google search
showed a you Tube video made by the looks of it the designer of the
model, beta build?


that's it for now back to Sherman track.

made up part number 7 to the trailer which is the back support for the
platform on the front bogey. No fit problems just a bit of trimming.

I thought it was about time I did some more of the trailer. I sort of
came to a stop with part eight which was some timber decking and I
wasn't happy with the paper parts so i am going to use some thin plywood
instead and have been waiting to get round to painting the wood. it is
primed and I will probably paint it when I get the airbrush out to do
the SD 14. So I am going to skip part 8 the moment and move onto part 10
which is the mounting for the drawbar. No real problems with this the
only bit I did different was to make the parts with a pivot hole in
solid rather than hollow as it would give more support to the pivot.




Next
is part 13 which are the axles and springs started on the axles the
front axle is fairly straightforward as it is just a straight
rectangular box the back axle was harder as you can see it is U-shaped.
seems to have turned out well and I'm reasonably happy with it.

Made a start on the springs and completed one.

I fixed the spring mounting brackets to the chassis then fixed the springs to the axles which were then fixed in place.



Next
up are the wheel hubs, the instructions are very clear how these are
made up in the drawing it looks as you have the back of the hub where it
fixs to the axle and then what appeared to be two more drums and I
finally worked out the side pieces for these drums are only at one end
to the slightly smaller drum as the brake drum sits inside the house
drama of the hub.

The back of the hub.

The brake drum.

Carried on with constructing the hubs.




The completed hubs.


The parts for the brakes.


Brake units fixed to the hub.


Hubs mounted onto the axles and movable as you can see in the pictures.






Steering
arms and rods fitted these were a bit of a nightmare getting the arms
bent to the right shape and the rods the right length so the wheels are
in a straight line but as you can see it seems to work out okay.





Now
we come to the wheels all the parts gathered from several sheets ready
to be cut out laser cut treads and brand-name continental I painted
black with thined artist oil paint like using this on wheels I think it
is a good colour and also is quite good for priming at the same time.


The
inner sides of the wheels are made up of two discs with laser cut discs
I needed to cut out the thin paper templates they go on the inner disc
as their printed up with a thing grey desk in the centre forming part of
the wheel rim see in the picture here with the outside of the wheel
glued onto one side.


The
inner wheels all glued up. After taking this picture I test fitted the
laser cut tread a round the outside but it didn't quite join up there
was a gap of about a mill and a half. I think that the inner outside
strip was just a bit too big so since this picture was taken I have
removed it and redone the wheels which will start in the next update,
that's all for now.

I decided to redo the wheels so the laser cut
tread would fit. I decided to make up a jig using the centre of the
wheel to make sure both sides were properly aligned.

Wheel side disc is then placed facedown on the jig.

I then placed card spacers on the inside of the disc that I'd cut to match the inside diameter of the wheel.

The other wheel disc was then glued on top.

I use the back of the printed wheel treads to cut new strips to get round the outside the two side discs.

Continuing with the wheels glued the centre tire side to its backing ring with tabs.


Glued the inner portion of the tyre side in place.


And then glued the outer ring that are side.


Tyre sides glued to the wheel core.


Tyre sides hardened with Ca glue.


Tyre sides and the outside circumference edges rounded off with sandpaper.


Treads glued in place.



The tread sides sanded down to blend in with the side of the tyres.


Applying the laser cut continental tradename to the outside of the tyre.


Tradename has been lightly sanded and the tyres are awaiting some more black artist oil paint.


The
finished tyres. have also given the treads and the outside of the sides
a light wash with a brown earth colour.Except for the spare wheels,
where I just did the topsides. To give them a bit of a used to look.


The parts for the inside of the wheel rims, the spare wheels had been completed.


Glueing
up the angle pieces of the wheel centre was a bit tricky made up of two
shallow cones glued back to back. I found that as they are the same
size if I applied glue to the inner cone it expanded just enough that it
wouldn't fit into the outer code. But by applying the glue to the outer
Is expanded just enough to glued to the inner cone. The freshly glued
up cones were then slipped over a jewellers ring mandrel until tight,
ensuring that they dried round.


The completed inner rims of the wheels with laser cut nuts glued in place. The thin crescent strips form the tyre rims.


Last job was to glue in the air valves and there you have 10 completed wheels.


The
wheels dry fitted to the front bogey frame I won't glue them in place
until I have finish the bogey, as I think it will be easier fitting the
brake lines with the wheels off.



That's it for now of up to Carlisle for the weekend to look at an excavation on Hadrian's Wall
