Bn21 Freudenstein/MODELIK 1:25

I just bought this MODELIK kit because I love tiny slim gauge steam locomotive. Until now I didn’t even know this company name. According to Wikipedia Freudenstein was founded in 1891 by Julius Freudensteinuntil, until then, Freudenstein had worked for Orenstein & Koppel.

My preference of locomotive tends to be American and European. The reason is simple. I was born and raised in Yokohama where U.S. occupation force stationed when I was kid. At that time thanks to cheap Yen rate Japan was exporter of brass train model to the U.S.. Nearby my house there was well known manufacturer of model train rail with flexible plastic sleeper. They had shop too so I would drop in the shop after school and gaze at expensive brass made American locomotives. So, still now I love American and European train.

Today cut out thick paper parts for frame.

That's an interseting story, Yu. I have a brass collection, perhaps some came from Yokohama. But no narrow gauge, sorry. I am glad you are building this engine so I can follow in your path and build my copy.Good luck!
best regards

Hoi Yu-san,

Was the company name perhaps Tenshodo? They were also very well known for their trams/ streetcars...

RE: Bn21 Freudenstein/MODELIK 1:25

Hi guys thank you for dropping notes.

I apologize my writing wasn’t clear. The shop name was Shinohara. They are specializing in manufacturing truck for HO and HOn3 gauge and in their shop, of course, Tenshodo’s expensive but precise trains were sold.

By the way, the first picture is one of my favorite locomotive, Westside lumber company No.8 Shay geared locomotive of HOn3 , that I bought about 20 years ago and spent about a year for assembly and running adjustment. Japanese brass model is precise but when it comes to smooth running American made model is better.

Got basic part of chassis done today.
This loco is tinier than Orenstein & Koppel Cn2t.
One of reason I opted for this model is its Allan straight link valve in that I am very much interested.
Now I noticed I have to make rivets. That is another nightmare as well as cutting thick paper….

Hi Yu,

So, despite the wheels, you liked the Cn2t :) It is true that this model has only 4 :D
It is interesting because Modelik has also published a very similar locomotive with different colours. It is already on my Christmas list and, no doubt, I'll follow your build closely ;)

@Ricardo,
Good news ;) I can't wait to see your locomotive build again.

@Alfred,
This is my second steam locomotive build. If you are interested you can see my first one at here [FERTIG] MODELIK Nr17/07 Orenstein & Koppel Cn2t 1:25

Today I have punched out a lot of rivets patiently from morning till night and got tired of repetition work.

Yu San,

I agree it's boring to apply revet heads but the result is amazing.

I'am sitting in the first row watching the progress.

Question, how did you perform the axles ? Are this toothpicks wrapped with paper ? I practice this methode for my tram axles.

Very accurate as usual =D> =D> =D>

My very best Regards
René

Servus Rene San,

Thank you for your encouraging words.
About axles, contrary to your expectation I used dia. 2.5mm plastic round bar because there was that perfect size plastic bar in my stock :rotwerd:

Best regards,
Yu

Thanks a lot Jonny

I really look forward to weekend lately because cannot afford to have time for paper modeling on weekdays.

Less modeling put me off my stroke and I need something that kicks me into gear….

Today assembled some of parts anyway.

Yes, Fred-san, first I glued scrap of red construction paper onto a 0.5mm thick card and puched it out as shown in first picture.

Today built the piston cylinders.
Delamination of hexagon bolts gave me trouble. I had to reglue them and some bolts becom out of alignment....

impressive scale

Dear Yu San,

I remeber, some postings before, you said that the 1:25 scale is to big for you (or your shelf capacities), but I see..........you are flexible.

Nice build so far, very clean, very detailed, ....be honest at the rivets, Great!

best regards Frank
