The Hjemstad Line
After what seemed like an eternity to tin the new solder tip, the car walls was soldered today. I'm sure there are much better solderers out there, but as a first time brass kit builder I'm more than satisified! Minimal solder leak to the outside of the car, and the tape I used to keep the parts together handled the heat just fine without melting:

Maybe I've been a bit generous with the solder on the inside, perhaps I should reduce it the next time..?

I have updated my home page with a separate menu for The Hjemstad Line, hopefully there will be more frequent updates and some progress from now on.

This is really cool! I love all of the thought put into this, and it's a nice refreshing change to see something other than an American or Canadian railway. Keep up the good work! Thumbsup

I'm sorry, but as a result of Trump's toll barriers, all my pictures are temporarily blocked from viewing here at Big Blue. Sad

No idea why tolls would block viewing? The are no tarriffs/tolls against Norway.

Yes, there are, but that's off topic and a discussion not wanted here on Big Blue have I been told, so can we please just let it be and move on?
