Hi to all, here with another update on the construction of Dora, a lot has being done since last update, this time I have started the construction of the ammo cars to complement the gun. Here is how I did it…

To make the ammo cars I used two dragon models ssy heavy flat cars, this are modified to match the ones used with the gun.

Here are examples of ammo cars

One of Dora’s ammo cars


Similar ammo cars








The first step is to cut the frames to 11mm height


Here the frames are cut to 11mm


The frames are assembled and the floors glued as per instructions






The boogies are assembled


The balconies are made for each side using .80 styrene sheet


It measures 18 x 89x 11mm



The original front part is glued to each balcony


The finished balconies, 18mm longer on each side now


Now I started to make the front panels

Here are the measurements made using .80 styrene




First the bottom is cut 4mm from the edge on each side, 15mm height x 89 wide


Next the doors are marked and cut as per the drawing

The doors are 20mm wide x 48mm tall


The roof curvature is marked and cut




The panels are glued in place


There is a step on front of each entrance, it is to make the
floor level with the Elevator platform when loading the shell or charges




Again using .80 styrene the parts are cut


Each step measures 89mm wide x 4mm deep x 13mm height


The steps are installed





Time for the side walls or panels


This are made with .80 styrene measuring 270mm long x 65mm height


The panels are glued to the front parts


The parts are tested on the chassis


So far so good




There is a gap between the side panels and the chassis, this is caused
by the extra 4mm added to the front panels on each side, I used a T shape
Measuring 3.2 x 3.2mm to fix it


The Tees are glued to each side of the chassis

The gap is fixed, here you can see the T in place


I added two more walls to the interior to use as supports
For the roofs
Using the same .80 styrene the wall are made, measuring
95mm wide x 91mm height


The roof curvature is marked and cut



The wall are glued in place, this walls DOES NOT EXIST ON THE REAL CARS
I added it to make some supports for the upcoming roofs panels






A view of the underside


The cars are almost finished, working on painting it
and applying decals.

More soon and thanks for watching
