Buenos Dias Panzer67, and Good Mornin' to ya!

I am mighty glad to hear of your impressive rail-based plans mi amigo...especially your railcar plans

Your progress so far {on the Railguns} looks great. You're obviously making the folks over at Evergreen plastic very happy indeed. I have a question, from your supplied pictures it looks like your using {maybe} the Dragon kit trucks for your build?
If so, will these work for all of the Bruno's, including the Schwere?
Also, since you obviously have plans for these cars from Krupp, do you also have a source of plans for your future railcars?..?
If so, I would be VERY interested in talking to you.
BTW.....which german train do you have your eye on?.....Armoured Train No. 51?.......or maybe the BP 42/44?....?
Just curious..........reason being is I am also working on an armoured train project, but my focus is not German, but instead Russian, Polish, Czech, Japanese and even Chinese armoured trains....................

Tread.

at the same railcar i think is not possible because the searchlight require the generator to supply the equipment and the batteries are formed of some railcars separated at the firing position, chained on traveling position

will see my info and tell you what i can found Irish...

I am also interested in German armored trains. I am currently working on a project, but have a question. I am building an AA gun on a twin axle flatbed. I saw the picture in Werner Muller's, "German Flak in WWII". My question is, has anyone ever seen the combination of a Flak quad 20mm and a 150 cm searchlight 37 on the same railcar?

For anyone interested, there is a Spanish company named Baluard who makes resin German railroad engines and cars. I just finished a diesel engine, and purchased an Armored BR60 engine. They are not exactly an easy build, but look great when complete.
