SUPERLINER

The two parts remaining for this car are the windows and the roof; at this time they are current manufacturing. As I can't stay in front of my bench without working, I have begun to cut up some parts for the second one, the sleeping car; so I have a question for the OGR Webmaster: may I open another thread or keep on on the same one? It's however something different; I prefer to ask you; Thanks.

Have you seen the remake of the Italian Job film?  Last scene is filmed in the Superliner club car.  It's also the best footage on film to my knowledge of various UP diesel locomotives.  I think there are SD70 Aces and ES44s but I'm not much of a diesel guy.

Jpv - I worked for a French company for many years and saw this 2003 film for the first time in my hotel room in Paris (Levallois). If it helps, the title was "The Italian Job," but was written over with "Braquage à l'italienne."  You can likely search this scene on YouTube if you'd like - under either title.  

The last scene shows the car exterior, and then much of the interior as the stars (including Charlize Theron) do something very French - a champagne toast.

I have begun to paint the window frames today; the surplus of black paint on the outside perimeter of the frames you can see is not important; it will be hidden when inserting the frames into the sides of the car.

As I began to work on the superliner sleeper I will open another thread for very soon.

The first windows!

and once in their locations:

I noticed 2 defaults when fitting:

a little gap on each vertical side,

the window frame is not enough thick to be taller than the side surface (lacks 1 mm). The side is probably a little more than 3 mm thick as planned on the drawings!

I have to modify the concerned 2D and 3D drawings for the next one.

And it's not the appropriate engine to pull this car!  ..........but it's the only one I have today and it was very useful to make the rolling attempts (which were successful )!

And now, c'est l'heure de l'apéritif!!!

The windows for the second face are done; I install them today.

I received the pieces for the roof; lack some light pulls of file to fit them together:

Four parts because my friend's 3D printer can't make the roof in one shot!

Now, file, glue and paint!

I'm near the end (almost! )

I remind you that all the 2D drawings, 3D files and . stl files for this car and the other to come are at your disposal; just ask me!

ROO----> some modellers in France are at the top; I'm not and I don't want to be a part of them! I'm just an "amateur" who has a big interest for US railways. And some among this so-called "top" are too pretentious and dreadful; for these guys, if you don't own some prestige brands models, you are not a modeller, more, if you don't work with brass, you are less than nothing! more if you don't work on a french model.... sacrilege!!!!!!!.........and here, the forums are invaded by these idiots! believe me, I have taken some malicious delight to write it when it has been time to say the four truths before leaving! ...
