Märklin Z layout #6.2.9 converted into 1:450

Post by rail450 »

Hello,

I decided to convert the Märklin layout „Hauptbahnhof und Nebenbahnhof“ 6.2.9 of Gleisanlagen-Buch Z into scale 1:450.

The turntable has just be done like this

and has to be finished by adding electronic, motor, gear and accessories.


The Märklin arch bridge 8975, straight ramp 8976 and curved ramp 8977 are just under CAD construction and will be printed soon.


BR,

Siegfried

Wow, the turntable looks impressive! Do you have the necessary machine available?
I would actually fresh up the layout a little bit and at least avoid tracks in parallel to the layout edges. Do you plan to use Eishido points?
Cheers

Yes, I´m planning to use Eishido points.

But I´m very sure that I´ll have to programm an ATINY13 to controll the motor.

My aim is to make the Eishido points compatible to Märklin Z points

Now I´m looking for best 3D printing service to get real parts in scale 1:450.

Hi,
the station plattform from KIBRI #36720 ("Bad Nauheim" scale 1:220) was scanned, scaled down to 1:450 und printed.

I have to use a microscope to color it and I think it will take a lot of time to finish ;-)
