Panagioti in the rear wagon we have a small cut at that point above altenator. Roco has cut a longer section in order the model can handle sharp curves.
In the model I made before 12 years (and now it is in Adelardo collection,) I used suitable bogies from a Kleinbahn Austrian bagage wagon which are as the railtop ones. But I cut the extentions which hold the brakes pedals from the outer sides. This was a mistake of me as in the photos I had these part of bogies was invincible. So I didn't have space problem and I decided to add these plastic strips to be closer to original.

In this photo the reason of these cuts is obvious

Thanks Stefane, that's what I had suposed too.
I've noticed that each one of the original ROCO bogies have an alternator that can be placed on the Railtop ones.
I have also trimmed the bogies above the inner brakes and the car rolls freely on curves.

Now the model is complete, time to put it on service as Adelardo suggested :D

Panagioti the model looks very nice. The red colour and the decals are perfect. Have you used spray or airbrush?
As far as bogies I stil hardly believe that they have the extentions for the brakes. But they had them for sure. These bogies were very noisy during braking. I have travelled with ex-TEN sleepers
only once in 1997, Athens-Thessaloniki, and our cabin was above bogie. I didn't sleep that night. From Thessaloniki we took IC70 to Drama. I had already slept by the moment we passed Lachanikipi.

I'm using an airbrush, an IWATA HP-C that I had bought back in the mid 90's.
The colors and varnishes are Vallejo, I was very pleased using them (I have used MOLAK, so I have no fear :D )

I still use enamels, molak or humbrol with Badger, initially model 200, then since mid 90s model 150. Lately I bought a chinese airbrush fo 25 euros just to feel different It is nice too.

It was just a joke, MOLAK were and still are great colors.
I'm just pleased though that the acrylic paints have become better through the years.
With a booth and a slightly open window we can use them indoors too.

We should start a new topic at the "Members Modeling Projects, Layouts & Collections" section about paints, RAL, tricks and techniques.

Yes Panagiotis I am in the mood of such a topic.
As for airbrushes, believe me that I use them in the last 32 years but always indoor without boots, only an open window. When I paint I seat in my desk in my workshop.
I need selfconcentration.

That's good news. It's very interesting that there is a "Schlafwagen - Voitutre-lits - Sleeping Car - Κλiνάμαξα" inscription on the white band next to the doors!
I have seen only one photo of a car bearing these markings. Was the case with 807 presented? Had also had the stripe cut in the middle over the logo?
I guess people at ACME have done a research as usually do.
Does anybody know about these details?

Yes, Panagioti.
Some wagons had the white stripe cut above ose logo really. The model looks great. I gave Romano Molter of Acme many photos of TEN,Gosa and Breda coaches during the last ten years.
