Shopping list

Beitrag von Thor Marum » Dienstag 27. September 2016, 15:14

Dear Miniatur Wunderland.

As a frequent visitor in Hamburg, on YouTube and here I have have a wish.

In Your videos on YouTube You show "how-to" and You use a lot of fancy stuff.

Silocone for creating moulds, casting materials and paint that will rust, just to mention a few items.

Unfortunately I live in Denmark and this stuff isn't common in hobbyshops.

Would it be possible for You to make a "shopping list" containing brand names and maybe where to buy.

I already buy must things in Germany or Austria as Denmark is a wasteland when it comes to hobby stuff.

Best regards from Denmark

Dear Thor,

here are a few suggestions:

1.) I advise you to post your questions what exactly you want to buy in the German section of our forum. I’m sure that many of the subscribers can understand and answer in English as well.
2.) Contact company Faller and ask for an edition of their model maker booklets, where the often pulish ads of other specific model material companies as well.

Faller is the company where we purchase from as well (paints and buildings, before we made our own)

Other good companies:
“Viessmann”: for Buildings, signals, lamps
0049 7723 651-0 info@faller.de

“Heki” + “Noch” for landscape materials

“Revell” for Paints

The large electronics store “Conrad” also offers a lot of models and model making materials.

Last, but not least, for silicone, plaster with plastic fiber etc. simply go to a hardware or buildings supplies store.

Happy hunting
Stephan

Dear Stephan,

your reply has already helped me a lot.

I knew about Faller and Heki but the other brands were more or less unknown to me.
I knew about Conrad as well, but I only used them for electronics.

Thank you very much.

By the way, I'll be visiting Miniatur Wunderland on November 9th and have a guided tour of your new Italy section. I'm looking forward to see if it's as good as I imagine.

Best regards from Denmark.

It won't. It will look far better than you can ever imagine. :D

Meine Bastelstunde gibt es auch auf YouTube.
Ich mach es lieber am Anfang exakt - und schluder später ein bisschen. Wenn ich schlampig anfange, krieg ich es am Ende nicht wieder genau.

@Harry: We already have nice friends and members from Denmark and Scandinavia at every "MFM"[1] meeting.

There we have the good opportunity to talk together about tips and tricks ... :professor2:


Kind regards to Europe

Hi Micha.

I can imagine stuff you won't even dream of, but if it's just half as good as I imagine it will be out of this world.

Dear Harry and Datterich.

Thank you for your replies. I will be searching in the German forums for tips and tricks. I speak and read German, but unfortunately I can't write in German.

Please tell me more about MFM.

Best regards form Denmark.

Please have a look here => About MFM (in German) and our next meeting in September 2017. More details and the complete program 2017 will follow next February ... but nearly the same agenda as this year including an interesting sightseeing-tour by bus through Hamburg in scale 1:1 :D

Kind regards from Germany
Datterich

I totally agree with thor that sometimes I find it very difficult to find items that they are mentioning in videos because these things are not easily available everywhere.

I wonder how it went?
Also how come you can read and speak German but not being able to put a few lines together with your request? Shouldn't be that hard to do.
