That is a great piece of model engineering. I was lucky enough to see the Hochtief TBM at work in Scotland on a Hydro Scheme but I never saw the TBM from these perspectives.

Great work.

Wonder how many low loaders it would take to move one of these.

All,
I saw that Manfred had updated his thread on Hansebube so thought I'd share it here. Translation by Google:

"Hi

Long time since the last update, but once again some current pictures which I have made at our club exhibition two weeks ago today.

The next trailer is now also grown and the next (then for the next module) are already under construction (in front of the TBM - see model on the table)


I'm the final model length of 9 meters slowly but surely closer, emphasis on slowly ......


I hope the pictures enjoy.

greeting

Manfred"

Hallo Zusammen

Lange her seit dem letzten Update, doch heute mal wieder ein paar aktuelle Bilder welche ich anlässlich unserer Clubausstellung vor zwei Wochen gemacht habe.

Der nächste Nachläufer ist nun auch angebaut und die nächsten ( dann für das nächste Modul ) sind auch schon im Bau ( vor dem TBM - Modell auf dem Tisch zu sehen )


Ich komme der endgültigen Modelllänge von 9 Metern langsam aber sicher näher, Betonung auf langsam......


Ich hoffe die Bilder finden Gefallen.

Gruss

Manfred

Hello Paul

Thank you very much that you have made the "work" for me to post the pics of my "life - Project" here at the DHS - Forum.
So you where a little bit faster than me....Teeth

To recieve the totally lenght of 9 meters I will make 6 modules with 1.50 meters, so I can load the modules in to my car for model - exhibitions etc.

Best regards from switzerland ( the country of the tunnels..... )

Hello friends

Thank you very much for your compliments.
They will help me to continue with this project after 10 years of work and not to lose my enthusiasm for it.

Best regards

Awesome project. That structure almost looks like a spaceship Teeth What's most impressive is to have such details inside and out.

That wonder deserves exhibition in civil works expos. But that you must have done already.

Hello Brandon

Thanks for the compliment !!

Here some pics I have made in April 2014 on a model - Exhibition near Zürich / switzerland :











The bridge - model was built from a friend of me, a 100% - scratchbuilt model in scale 1:100 !!
It`s a bridge from the rhaetian railway in switzerland.

Best regards

Hello all

In the last weeks and months I have worked very "hard" on my 2 TBM - models from the Gotthard - bastunnel, so they are now finished until the backub - System number 2b and I will show you some pics of them.
Actually I am working on the next backup - systems and I hope I will finish the model ( 9 meters Long... ) in a couple of years.

Best regards

Manfred
