I discovered the Occre in a shop in my city where last year I bought my first model Stephenson's Rocket.



this is the gallery of my first experience with OcCre trains

Rocket is a static model but now I have built a wooden railway for my BR18, maybe I will also motorize my Rocket.

http://forums.mylargescale.com/24-pr...ian-dream.html

All their trains can be motorized and built with many details.
obviously to motorize them we need more attention to build the moving parts.

Now on Costa Wagon I'm building the roof, I have many news, as soon I'll post all new photos and descriptions

I built the roof differently from the instructions so I can paint it inside



first of all I folded the wet strips on the soldering iron





first step I built the roof frame without glue it to the the walls





Finished the frame I move it on my desk.



I start to cover..





to make the construction more solid I preferred to lay out a thin fiberglass texture










paint inside



I reassembled on the walls and I finished the external roof frames
