I made a little film, and I opened a channel on YouTube. Here the result - I did it just with my mobile phone :mex: - unbeliveable what you can do with such a little thing... :cb:

Thorsten,
I like it very much.  Great job.  I am really interested in the sound.  It looks like you used a DelTang receiver.  I did not think sound was capable with DelTang.  Can you share more information on your sound system?
Bob

Hi Thorsten :wave:

Top Toddy !!

Lookin' good. :bg:

Careful with those light-bulbs ! :shocked:


:moose:


Si.


Bob ... Juergen is installing sound on his DelTang critter, by using 'Bluetooth'.

There is some stuff about it in > THE REPLICANT < Thread.

First! Thank you two.@ Bob: 

The sound I use is from the 99 Elias, a German loco in a box. 

You'll find it here: http://www.d-i-e-t-z.de

I also take a sound module from there - and no, I don´t use DelTang 

- I like this system very much - but it is impossible to make automatic, computerised traffic. 

I drive with a selektrix 2 system. 

The power come from the track.



@ Si: Yes the light looks very hard, the reason is the small light I use for pics and movie-making. 

I drive with 12 V and the lights have 14 V so they aren't in trouble, just my eyes :cool: 

- next time I try 16 V lamps, maybe it's more realistic.

Oh - by the way - I had visitors: I think I heard something like "Who let the dog out?"

Hi Thorsten :wave:


I haven't seen the video, but I'm sure it's GREAT ! :bg:


So, no comment from me, on 'hardness' or 'realism'...

...I tend to leave the 'rivet-counting' to others anyway. ;)

( I loose count by 10 anyway )


My 'be careful', was just to say, don't blow 'em up, they look tricky to replace.

Looks like you got 'em running 'low' anyhow, which is good.


I'm a big fan of filament-bulbs.

Tricky to get the same effect from an LED.

Yellow & orange don't really cut it, so that leaves the harsh white ones.

Best way I've found to 'tame' those, is by using a filter.

Some 'chocolate wrappers' work OK, with a bit of experiment.


I have a filter-sample book from 'Lee Lighting' which is a very cool thing to have for such experiments.

Tell 'em you're a big time Hollywood producer, making a $1M movie about trains, they might send you one. ;)


Looks like the critter painting is going well also.

Keep up the great work !

Hi Si,

Now I understand what  you say :bow: 

It is very tricky to change them, and I hope they will be OK for the rest of no 6 life. 

I experimented with LED but I don't like the color - a filter - is a good idea. 

I painted them with window color but the result wasn't like a filament bulb is doing.
Ups - my daughter is hungry - I have to feed 'er :rah:

Curious to see the final shape of this.
