Roland Sachsenhofer Today I managed to glue and get all the 27 parts in place. I would like to give you an impression of the parts in rawness. Some filling was done, a little bit of sanding will follow before tomorrows spraying session.
Roland Sachsenhofer Well, not for long.....
There is a Bv 222 on my shelf begging to be build in the next months. I guess I can´t resist any longer. But in a first step, this Dockwagen will be finished!
Roland Sachsenhofer The "Dockwagen" is finished, that was quite a little change to "something unusual" for me. It was a pretty nice and not too complex build And a usueful addition to any Bv 222 project, of course!

Erik Leijdens Your dockwagen turned out great Roland. Looking forward to your Bv-222 build.
Benoit Mathier Looking great! - and somehow these colors / weathering reflect WWII ambiance to me. What are the railings made of?

Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you very much Benoit! I tried to give the "Dockwagen" a not too exaggerated look concerning wear and tear. But it should be clear on the first glance that it is being used constantly
The railings- stanchions as the horizontal "ropes"- are kit parts being made of etched metal.

carrey Looking very good! Are there any drawings, schemes, detail pictures of this beast? Will try to scratchbuild one. I don't get the idea how is it steered if pulled by one point only.

Roland Sachsenhofer Hi Carrey; I am afraid but I can provide no further information whatsoever. For a short while I tried to get some information about that "trolley", mainly because I was interested in the tool systems obviously attached to its frame, but I did not manage to get any information about that. Sorry, mate- and good luck with you scratchbuild I will certainly follow!
