Many years ago Revell launched two easy to assemble kits in 1/32nd scale, which are now more up-to-date than ever.

I received photos from Switzerland of a long train with the cars from Dingler's kits, which are still being pulled by a Bavarian locomotive for the time being.

After the interior and windows have been installed and the chassis has been completed, the assemblies of the Baden express train car from Dingler can be combined. But in the end there is still a hurdle to be overcome until the gauge 1 passenger car from 1903 is equipped with all the details.

Dingler has produced various versions of the Baden express train cars from the turn of the century as partial kits for the target group of live steamers. It is partly already soldered, painted and printed, but it requires more experience and patience than the relatively simple assembly of the Baden baggage car.

In part 1 of the assembly description I show with 60 photos how to assemble the car body.

Car kits for gauge 1 are rare and overstrain many model railroaders. Inspired by the requests of live steam railroaders from Switzerland, Dingler dared the experiment and published two kits of Baden cars. The baggage car offers hardly any major hurdles even for beginners - if they know a few tricks and tools. It is not a quick kit for three afterwork hours. But with a little patience and my detailed assembly instructions with 60 pictures you will successfully reach your goal.

Shop showcases of scale 1:32 buildings are often decorated with photos because the decoration is laborious or corresponding goods are not available. A kit with musical instruments for a stylish music shop of epochs I to IV will be available soon.

At Dingler, the kits of the Baden cars are currently being assembled on a trial basis. Here are the first pictures.

Accessories for gauge 1 are usually quite large. Kits can be mounted without magnifying glass and the secure grip of a four year old. The pallet kit discussed here is ideal for fun at the end of the working day - and the result is very close to the original.

Until the 1970s, there were manually operated gantry cranes in German railway stations for reloading heavy goods from open freight cars to carriages and trucks - and vice versa. For those who don't necessarily need real action on a Gauge 1 diorama or at the loading track, Jürgen Hans offers an attractive alternative to functional models.

MiniArt has released a new car kit that fits well to epoch III. And quite by chance we learn why a related Mercedes-Benz looked very similar to a Volkswagen Beetle - or was it the other way round?
