the tiles are printed on paper, to make them realistic I covered with transparent adhesive tape and marked the lines with a glass cutter

Looks like a super nice kit with lots of detail. You are doing a great job of building and finishing it. I hope it is actually 55 centimeters long. 55mm would only be about 2 inches. Keep posting.

Yes of course I mistake.. model is 55cm long.

I have made windows in real glass, is easy like polycarbonate but much better.











then I finish the wooden mosaic with around 300 12mm bits of wood



same work outside, I space wood tables with a ruler








After a gloss paint I glue wallpaper for last.

The seats..

I have assembed the frames and painted metal with shellac (work perfect like primer) , then I have paint with brown water based Vallejo colors and glossy Humbrol.





I rounded the corners and edges of the wooden cushions



I glued the silk with vinyl and I put a sponge with a weight to make the fabric adhere to the edges



I cut the corners and folded the fabric on the back






this is the result







the third class benches are more complicated





I made the luggage nets and even these were not simple to build, I made them on the bench on a double sided adhesive tape





finally, now I'm doing the doors.
the toilet door opens on two hinges, the others open on pins







these are the doors that open on the pins, for now I have finished only one

Very nice job on the seats. Looks similar to what I did on my Mexican train so I know how much work it takes. I have never seen a coach rest room that opened to the outside, very interesting. It is all looking wonderful!

wrighizilla;

My goodness but that coach is looking comfortable. I may have to re-watch the movie "Honey, I Shrank the Kids" to see whether I can get shrunk small enough for a ride in that coach!

Best wishes,

Very interesting. I've never heard of this model company before. Thank you for posting your work on this.

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.

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
