Ho House integrated with the decor

You have finished the model of your building ... It is now time to integrate the Ho house on the ground of your network (as I did on the module for the Ramma 2015).
It is true that you simply have to ask ... and paste ... but the terrain of your decor is not flat.
It is out of the question, as we often see, to see spaces, the [...]

Convenient modulator

You need a small modulator? To control your network in analog (if it remains reasonable).
Here's how to easily order your train while remaining free of your movements with one hand (this is a good way I used to order the Hoe train on the modules for the Ramma 2015)
So how are you doing?
The idea of the little modulator!

Locotracteur Minitrains Hoe

Who says module says of course ... rolling stock.
For rail traffic on the Raoul Lagrume operation, I need a locomotive and timber wagons to transport the wood.
1st locator Hoe ... at Roco!
It was a first choice ... I bought on Ebay, a Hoe Roco locator. But, this one does not bring me any satisfaction.
I thought at first that my path was not put correctly ... the feeding of needle cores [...]

Patine rolling stock Hoe.

The rolling stock brought to circulate on the Ramma modules 2015 looks much too new to match the environment!
It will be necessary to realize a copious material patina ... to give the impression that everything has undergone the weather and the years ... moreover the Lagrume does not spend its time pampering the wagons and the locomotives ... must it bump!
Tools and equipment for the patina!
Still Humbrol painting [...]

2015 Ramma modules in the sun

The 2015 Ramma modules take the air!
I dreamed for a long time ... get to advance the work of modules Ramma 2015 and install them in the garden.
Here I am at the right moment. Ramma modules 2015 are 80% made ... With my son Jules, I go down the model in the garden in the late afternoon (around 17h).
My camera (Reflex Canon 700 D) tripods and before the photos ... I feasted. [...]

Ho electric network.

Transformer, pylons, cables ... electricity arrives at Lagrume ... no more candlelight parties!
The transformer (Artitec model) will, thanks to 1 pylon, be connected to the electricity network ... and 2 pylons will link it to the Lagrume house.
I chose the ABE 44 pylons that I first pass to the TAMYA primer.
I will then prepare 2 pieces of cardboard (from the width of the pylon, from the rest of a kit [...]

Patina house Lagrume

It is Martial Cure who, of some pieces of cardboard and with the help of his Craft Robot, realized the family home of Lagrume Père & Fils.
It will have to integrate now to the decor of our modules Ramma 2015. But before all that, with the permission of Martial, I will make a small homemade patina.
So this homemade patina ...?
The goal is to materialize the wear of time on the building! Do not […]

Module sonore Loco-DigiLab

The model is good ... the scenarios, trees, wood ... the characters ... but all that lacks a bit of sound, a little atmosphere!
So I appealed to LDL - Loco-DigiLab;
It designs very simple sound modules and small sizes, very easy to implement on your network. These modules provided for a price between 20 and 30 € can restore sounds, atmospheres to [...]

A gas tank.

To fill the tank of locotractors, I need a tank ...
Not too small, not too big 1500 to 2000 liters would be a good compromise, it will be in place on the module 1 at the end of the line.
After different attempts with cylinders of different diameters ... I fell a bit by chance on a can ... can be a Playmobil can. It is red plastic.
The fuel tank - the main body.
I spent […]

The needle lever ABE 28

I put in place the controls for the 4 needles of the modules. I chose for this simple levers counterweight.
After reflection my choice turned to the needle levers ABE 44 (belle époque workshop). They are delivered in a small plastic bag with inside, a foldable notice and two clusters of brass parts. One includes hooves, the other levers and counterweights.
Drilling each lever [...]
