About the RailTop boggies have a look at the first page of this topic. I think they are out of stock by now.
Maybe ACME has the right type as they were used at the GOSA coaches too. Does anybody knows if they are available as extra parts?
I'd like to have a pair as I have a third ROCO model in stock.

The RailTop bogies are out of stock, I think. They are not on the RailTop website that I've found, and they didn't answer my e-mail, so I went for 3D printed bogies instead.

As for ACME, they do have some spare parts, including bogies. But not the Wegmann.

That's what I think too, ACME offers bogie spares but, for some reason, not the Wegmann one.
Is there a link for those 3D printed bogies Swede?

There sure is:

Personally though, as I bought mine for the Roco Tågkompaniet sets (64121 and 64122), I chose these ones:

Be careful though if you purchase these. They're very nicely detailed, but quite fragile.

Thanks Swede, the second one has also the right generators at both bogies.
The Railtop set has just one and at the wrong position, so I'll have to add them from scratch.

I have finished the first one (801), the second is waiting for decals and the third for the 3d bogies too...
I didn't dare to weather that white roof! I only used some wash at the bogies and lower part to simulate dust and grime

I hope Adelardo is pleased with the photos :D
at the end there are two close-ups, the distortion is from the macro lens

I was a bit unsure of which bogies would be the correct ones, which is why I included both.

I did however slightly shorten the "pipe" for the bogies when using the 3D printed ones as the cars seemed a bit too high otherwise.

Very very good Panagioti. And I used to believe that you were a keyboard modeller only. I was surprised.
I need two sets of decals. Do you sell any?

Thank you all guys for your comments! I'm really glad that you liked it

Stefane, I was surprised too :mrgreen:
It's a great feeling modeling again after quite some years...
I'll be glad to give you the decals, you'll have though to be a bit patient till to be send for printing.

I'd like to ask you something as you have already built the model.
Above the bogies there are two narrow "extensions" that you have added to your model.
Does the car passes the curves? It looks a bit unlikely.
Actually even without them we have to cut off a couple of millimeters from the bogies above the inner brakes.

As we're working in 1:87, could we make some license? It seems to be less than half a milimeter in H0...doesn't it?
