I used the hand wheels from the dragon cars and a piece of 1.2 x 11mm long rod
With a small base 2.5 x 2.5 of .40 styrene to finish the mechanism

The finished brake system




Now I started the doors,


The doors are already cut from the front panels, so only the details need to be made
I started with the hinges, made from .90 x 5mm styrene rod cut in 4 pieces


The hinge plates are made from .30 styrene 2.5 x 2, 12 pieces for each set of doors


The doors in place with the hinge pins


The small top door hinge plates are .70 styrene 2 x 2.5mm with a .30mm x 20mm
Styrene rod




The doors handles are made using part #B4 from the dragon cars




The part is trimmed to shape






With the addition of the rails the cars construction is finished













The opened doors are being painted, thatís why this are
Missing now on both cars

A size comparison with my dragon stug III


Painting of the cars is almost finished, thanks for watching
