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.

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

Brilliant roundhouse! Will you share the stl file or post on Shapeways? I'm sure other modelers would like one!

That's an interesting point re IP and 3d scanning....it could easily reach a similar status as "zone 51" with all the discussions...

Here's one interesting article that probably sums up the current situation: https://www.wipo.int/wipo_magazine/en/2 ... _0006.html

Completing t-gauge roundhouse a turning platform will be added.


First test of turning platform at t-gauge scale 1/450 with steam locomotive BR01 you can find on my YouTube channel

That turntable is great! I'm contemplating a small engine terminal display and would like one. Is it a worm gear drive?

The turntable is beautifully done. How are you controlling it?
