Micromodels LSIII "Terminal Station"

Hello Friends,

One of the last models produced by Micromodels, LSIII is unique in that there were several other planned supplemental sets that were never completed before Micromodels closed. Thus, LSIII is only the facade of a major train station. You can read more about LSIII and all of the wonderful Micromodels at Bas Poolen's excellent World of Micromodels.

Even a cursory glance at the model shows that London's Victoria Station was probably used as the basis. After doing some research on the internet, I plan on texturing the existing model to more closely resemble Victoria Station and add some details and relief that this model is lacking. See more here and here.

I intend on scratch building the platforms and concourse building along with various scenery such as kiosks and ticket counters in order to make a full diorama. And of course lots of trains!

Kind Regards,

Cris

Wow, I'm very impressed by the few parts you show us.
Last year I visit Victoria Station each day during my London-holidays.
Your front ( especially the clock ) looks great. I'm looking forward
to see more!

Hello Friends,

Happy Fathers Day! Here is some progress on sections A and E. I am very happy all of the windows are done :)

Kind Regards,

Cris

@Christian: Thank you very much for your kind words. I was pleased with the clock myself :) I used the face of the real clock from a picture. Maybe you have a picture or two to share?

Hi Cris,

it was a great pleasure for me to meet you and Mia at BHV. Time was too short to have long conversations with all of the participants. I hope there will be more next time.

I like those Micromodels, especially when you bring your models to life. :thumbsup: There were a lot of windows you had to cut out. Very nice progress on the train station.

Best regards
Thomas

Hello Friends,

Some progress on the concourse side of the station and the passenger and baggage tunnels.

Kind Regards,

Cris

@ Thomas: It was certainly a pleasure for us as well Thomas to meet you. And you are certainly right, there was not nearly enough time to chat. Thanks for your kind words!

@Helmut: Thank you so very much!

Guten Morgen Freunde,

Because of the changes to the facade, and the goal of making the model more resemble Victoria Station, I had to make a new roof. Although I could have done this via CAD, I choose to hand draw the pieces to keep it in the same style as the rest of the model.

Kind Regards,

Cris

Hi Cris,

Year ago I desigend also in HAD = Hand Aided Design :D

I'am still biting my back (but can't reach it ;)) because I did not buy all the old Micromodels originals offered in Bremerhaven from Scaldis.

Anyway it is really great what you show us. (as usual)

Best Regards
René

Guten Morgen Freunde,

Here is the progress on the chimney's which are not yet finished and the front canopies. Not my most precision work :(

The phone-booth model was created in 1:22 by Herr H.J. Dramowski from Kartonist.de. A quite interesting history of these can be found here(EN). The benches are from the Micromodels LS1 set.

Kind Regards,

Cris

@Rene: Yes, I enjoy HAD and had quite a bit of formal training as a draftsman when I was much younger in the early 1980's before Autocad or even for that matter the 80286 personal computer. I completely agree with you about the original Micromodels, I bought several from Wim again this year as well! Thank you for your kind words!

Hello Again,

I have settled on portraying the diorama in the early 1930's. In the below picture (copyright, free use) you can see several AEC-K type omnibuses which were in service until the mid 1930's and were the predecessors of the iconic London double-decker bus. You can read more here (EN). Some pictures of one of the last surviving buses are here (EN).

Sometime ago on one of our trips to Prague, I was again able to pick up several ABC models, one of which was the AEC-K Type which I have (somewhat tediously!) rescaled from 4 A4 sheets down to about 1:200 which seems a good fit. As you know, the Micromodels vary quite a lot in their scale. I plan on incorporating a couple of these in the diorama.

Kind Regards,

Cris

pictures of it, I'm sorry!

Hello Friends,

At 69 Teile pro Bus, the two AEC-K's are fertig. Now on to the other vehicles...

It is still COLD and RAINY here...11C Tag/6 Nacht ! But, I traveled to Kuwait and Qatar just a few days ago and it was 48C! However, I will always take Deutschland at any temperature :)

Happy Weekend to All,

I just don't know how you do it!

Little fingers? :D

Fantastic work on those buses.

Hello Friends,

Here is the progress on two taxi's, and a private car. These are "special" Austin-Mecededes models :) Ok, Ok. Really they are the Mercedes from the HMV Deichstrasse that are supposed to be Austins :)

In the first picture you can see the bodies for two horse drawn cabs which I am scratch building.

Kind Regards,

Cris

@Zaphod: Thank you! PM me if you would like.

@Hajo: Thank you! They do look a bit like chitty-chity-bang-bang :D Mia says Hallo!

Here is some progress on the scratch built horse drawn carriages. The actual horses are reduced almost 50% from the Micromodels TR1 set.

Sunny Days to All!

Hello Friends,

The horse drawn cabs are complete. So, in the first image you can see my first attempt at a horse more closely resembled an overweight yak. The second attempt looks a little better, perhaps the off-spring of a yak and a donkey. C'est la vie!

I do not mind telling you hitching the horses up and putting the reins on was mildly infuriating.

Regards,

Cris

Hello Friends,

Thank all of you very much for your kind words and praise! I am taking a break from the front of the station. Here, I have laid out the tracks and platforms and begun placing the sleepers. Yes, it looks rough at the moment but by the time ballast is placed, the tracks are glued to the diorama base and the entire thing painted, maybe it will not look so bad.

Kind Regards,

Cris

@Thomas: Thanks! The Yaks say hello! I am not sure how to deal with the figures yet...I know I will need a lot.
@ Peter: Thank you! I knew I was keeping that Meter Maßstab for something!
@Helmut: Thanks!

The fron diorama is incredible enough, now you're going to build a back with all scenery?
Wow, that's impressive. :thumbsup:

Are you thinking about a scenery a la "HArry Potter" including platform 9 3/4?
or about a similar scenery like the movie "Hugo" ?

Linksverkehr?

Dear Cris,

what a remarkably lovely & tiny diorama!!

I've only one question: for left traffic in England - don't the vehicles take their left side to the station? E.g. the staircase of the coaches end on the left...




The old photos are not clear on this point; it probably often prevailed chaos and anarchy :D



Kind regards - Ully :)

The 700 or so sleepers are in place and the ballast has been installed. Also, the platforms have been constructed.

Kind Regards,

Cris

@Thomas: Thank you very much for your kind words and especially the great links! Although I doubt very much my little diorama will be so grand.

@Ully: Hi Ully! You are absolutely correct about the driving. However I used the below image as my reference. I have also attached another two that show as you say, chaos and anarchy :)

EDIT: Pictures removed while I research sources...
