Hello,

a few years ago - after visiting San Francisco - I built the 1/24 scale Cable Car # 49. It was originally an Occre kit. Since I was not very satisfied with the kit, only the base plate, the roof structure and some cast parts are left.

Now a few years later I'm building # 9. This time without a kit. I document the entire construction from the planning in great detail in my vlog on YouTube.

I would be happy if you like the videos and subscribe to my channel.

Here some pictures:

Manfred. This is some spectacular work. Incredible attention to detail. I have watched some of the videos and they are first rate. Are these models going to be motorized some day?

If I hadn't read the post and looked closely at the photos I would have thought it was the prototype. The track was the giveaway. Absolutely gorgeous modeling

Mate, your model looks stunning and keep up with the progress reports. Love the level of detailing going into this model.

Hitch, impressive as always. You use some sort of pad with the butane torch soldering. What make is that?

I imagine now it's done with slat wood and canvas covered? I seem to remember the slats from the last time I rode one. I'm guessing about the canvas. Perhaps rubberized?

I've been watching all of your videos - they are very well put together. I've been scouting ways to make my passenger car roof and seats - yours is the most applicable way that suits my modelling.
