Hello Friends,

Some of that freight is finally making it way to the warehouse. I will be adding more and of different types as we progress. I will eventually cover the rough edges and sides of the model with a veneer of some sort but I need to wait until I have poured the water in the harbor basin.

Regards,

Cris

Ahoy Harbormaster Werner!

Thank you very much for your kind words! I have no shortage of ideas, their implementation however, is another matter :S

I am finding that logistically, more planning is required than I first thought. For example, I know I want to show several rail cars being loaded/unloaded but to do that I need to know which kind of freight and where it goes 8|

I sincerely hope you are enjoying your Hafen as much as I am. My wife teases me that I have a "Playset" :D

Friendly Regards,

Cris

Hey Cris,

really wonderful work here, as usual!
The interior looks great and the small loading vehicles with the harbor personnel give "life" to the scenery.

I'm always excited with new pics in your thread, thanks for sharing them :)

Happy building :D

Kind regards

Lars

Hello Harbormasters!

After another long work enforced break (and a short holiday in Prague) the Port Authority is back on the job. The first of several rail cars are under construction. I found a shop my last visit that sells a few of the Czech Publishers kits. I may never build the RipperWorks Kits, but I find them very appealing.

I found an excellent historical reference site about Die Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft, Epoche II that is well worth spending several hours with. All of the wagons included with the Hafen are beautifully illustrated and much information regarding there use is given. Also, please be sure to visit the Charming Postcard Style Gallery and for Lok enthusiast, a visit to the Repair Shop.

As you can see, I was successful in showing the interior of the wagons, but not so good in the overall construction. I particularly misjudged the doubling of the doors and they slightly extend beyond the edge of the wagons roof. I wish to thank Wiesel (see his method here ), LarsW, and Konpass, for their method of portraying the coffee sacks with folded brown paper. I intend to show the last bay of the warehouse interior with stacks of coffee as well.

Thanks for reading and a Happy Weekend to All,

Cris

Hello Cris,

the basic idea of portraying the sacks by folded paper arises from Fritz (Sculptor).

It is a pleasure to follow your grandiose build.!

Hello Helmut,

Yes, after a few more minutes of research, of course your correct :pinch: I really wish Fritz would consider publishing his vehicles. They are such marvels.

Thank you for your kind words! I hope that one day I will achieve the level of precision and elegance that you and so many other members display in their builds.

Hi Harbormaster Cris,

phantastically built railway cars. May be I will try to open the doors of one of my cars too.

Please, hide well away all your other card models you have in stock. You should be not allowed to do other work than your harbor.

Hello Friends,

Work on the Güterwagen continues.

@ Ulrich and Werner: My friends, thank you very much for your words of praise! Obviously, my plan of depicting the most beat up and worn out wagons worked perfectly! Werner, I will try to keep focused... :P And please do try a wagon with the loading door open!

The two flatbed wagons are scratch built, I have a special cargo in mind for them. The green baggage wagon is from the Wilhelmshavener Hafenbahn set.

Kind Regards,

Cris

So the 11 wagon bodies are complete and we can now move on to the under carriages and buffers/coupling units. By my count there is only about 284 pieces left to finish the wagons.

Hello Friends,

Another long work enforced braupause has finally ended and work on the Hafenbahn has resumed. We also had a short holiday in Naumburg. I highly recommend a visit to this lovely and historic town if possible. Currently, a special exhibit about the Naumburg Master is open until November. The Naumburger Dom and many other locations are open to the public with many works on loan from various museums. Its really a once in a lifetime event. More on the hafen to follow shortly.

Regards,

Cris

Here are some scans of antique postcards I found in shops in Naumburg, Leipzig, and Dresden. They are fascinating to me as they are postmarked from Hamburg itself. All are from the early 1930's.

Hello Flugzeug Friends,

I told René Pinos some months ago that the Hafen would indeed have aircraft. I was inspired by the "Marklin image below which shows one of their HO scale rail cars. However, for my wagon I choose to depict the Junkers W 34 a light utility aircraft that was exported to many different countries. This particular aircraft is on its way to Bolivia and will be loaded on a larger ship moored further down the slip.

I made my model from scratch based on the sketch below. Lastly, I include an image that shows that this form of transport is still used today.

Regards,

Cris

Hi Cris,

brilliant idea, to show an aircraft in the diorama! And your construction looks extremely good. You don't find many aircraft models in this scale for sale,
Great addition to your harbour scene, looking forward to see the wagons with the plane parts in it.

Kind regards

Lars

Hello Güterwagen Friends,

Here are the first four fully completed wagons pulled up to the warehouse loading dock. I found it very interesting that prior to the 1950's the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft named their rolling stock in a manner similar to ship classes. So, we have 3 wagons of the "Munich" class loaded with coffee and one Kühlwagen. The Kühlwagen, used wet or dry ice to keep items chilled (not truly refrigerated) like the Bier that this one is loaded with :D . I've modified the original model slightly to reflect the reference image I used from Epoch II.

@ Lars: Thank you for the kind words! And I'm glad you like the idea. I could not find any proof that aircraft were ever shipped in this manner (via ship) but my research shows that it was certainly plausible and cool looking!

Best Regards,

Cris

Help Please

Hello Friends,

After a great deal of time spent at the Kai and the Bahnbetriebswerke, the Port Authority can finally return to the Schwimmdock to begin constructing vessels.

Could I please ask if anyone could provide further links or information on the two types of barges(Teile Sk1-SK6a and Sgg1-Sgg10 Bogen 2 and 8 ) and the small tug (Teile 1-30 Bogen 5)?

Many Thanks in advance! And now another baupause :(

Kind Regards,

Cris

Hello Friends,

After another long absence, I am able to show a little more progress. This last "paper holiday" has been busy! Last month, my father was able to come and visit. Not only was it his first first trip here, but his first time leaving America. Needless to say we had a wonderful time and he, like my wife and I are very much in love with Germany. This month we flew back to the States to watch my son graduate his Basic Training. He has enlisted in the National Guard. I was a Navy man myself, never the less we are very proud!

Kind Regards,

Cris

nice picture of Yours in front of the Leipzig townhall. mdl-Verlag Berlin has published a cardboardmodel of this house. During the time of GDR there was a model published too by Kranich/Junge Welt. I don't know if mdk has adopted this old model.

Hello Ulrich,

As ever, your Eagle Eye is sharp! Are you sure you did not work in the Photo Reconnaissance field? I have the MDK version of the Rathaus, as Leipzig and Schkeuditz are now my "adopted" towns. Recently, the city just finished up drawing the city crest in paving blocks on the platz in front of the Rathaus. It was quite interesting watching them construct this 10mx5m drawing in stone.

Cris

phantastic barges and not only built with perfect skill but also extended and refined with a big portion of phantasy. By time I get already used to see such marveless things from you.

I am sure you have good reason to be very proud of your son. Best luck to him on his duties.

Hello Friends,

A "little" progress to show today...(Ha! that joke never gets old). So, the Port Authority has received its last major freight consignment and is preparing it prior to moving it to the warehouse.

@Werner: My Friend, you surely heap to much praise upon me! As you can see, I have been away for some long weeks and am still catching up on the news on Kartonbau.de. However, I intend on paying the neighboring Harbormaster a call just as soon as this is posted.

I hope everyone has a pleasant weekend and enjoys the first of the Weihnachtsmarkt,

Cris

Hello Thomas and Amo,

Thank you for your kind comments!

@Thomas: I certainly hope you get the opportunity to build the Hafen some day. I also enjoy history and have spent many enjoyable hours browsing the photo archive.

@ Amo: Thanks to Lars W., who gave me the tip we can purchase the 1:220 scale figures I used in the Hafen Diorama from Hufis Mini's Shop. I have made several purchases from Herr Hufnagl and each time I have received excellent service. I notice that you also enjoy dioramas, he stocks a large range of scales. Maybe, some Gamblers and Belles for the Western River?

Regarding painting the figures: There are at least two methods of painting the figures. The first, is just simply painting the colors over the bare plastic. I perfer however to paint the figures black (or white for light colors) and the drybrush the colors on. The black which can show through in spots gives the illusion of shadow and helps blend the edges.

Best Regards,

Cris

Hello Friends of the Semi-Portal Crane,

The Port Authority has completed construction on the Hafen Cranes. I should mention I was all set to have a Lok being lifted aboard the Schwann but after discussing the issue with Lars, cooler heads prevailed :)

Kind Regards,

Cris

Hi Cris,

really perfect. Try B&W pictures and you will not estimate it's a fake.

Only the bags (Säcke) are a bit messy stored. ;)
