Chapter 28.1 ~ Postal delivery
Wednesday, December 21, 2022
Today a huge parcel arrived by DHL, containg a.o. an agricultural building with accessories.
The building itself is meant as addition to the Fachwerkhaus in the far left hand corner of the layout.
The accessories are very suitable for the Mittelaltermarket near Schloss Cochem.
Chapter 28.2 ~ Unboxing and painting
Wednesday, December 21 (2022)
Since Vallejo is also traded by Faller, I finally ordered this Paint Stand. About time...
Old and new bottles are now neatly arranged, waiting for the next kit.
Chapter 28.3 ~ The Horse Pump
Friday, December 23 (2022)
This kit has all kinds of attributes as an addition.
But I no longer need a crucifix. Hence the idea to make a water pump to water horses.
From the set of tower points ('Turmspitzen', Faller 180854) and the remaining horse head of my three-legged Artitec horse,
the following miniature was created, suitable for the Mittelaltermarkt at Schloss Cochem.
Chapter 28.4 ~ More painting and weathering...
Saturday, December 24 (2022)
And finally some dry white brushing to top it off.
Chapter 28.5 ~ Constructing
Christmas day, December 25 (2022)
Although I wanted to keep the lighting to a minimum, I couldn't resist the temptation to install an extra outdoor lamp and thus provide the courtyard with some extra lighting.
Chapter 28.6 ~ Relocation of the residential house
December 30 (2022)
Since both buildings will be too close together, I am forced to move the house to the back.
This meant that I also had to adjust the environment and remove most of the terrain.
Now wood glue, as strong as it is, dissolves in water again, so that the house remained undamaged.
Chapter 28.7 ~ Adaptations
December 30 (2022)
As expected from Faller, certain kits are released in parts.
The item 191779 for the Cochemer Bahn is essentially part of both a farmhouse (Faller 130370 viz. 191743) and a seasonal vine tavern (Faller 191715).
For that reason, this kit contained several parts that are not used, but that I could use, such as wooden slats for half-timbering.
In this way, the bare walls could be somewhat embellished.
Since this section has a flat wall and the bargeboards are missing, I made them with balsa.
An additional door was made of balsa wood.
And this is how it looks after completion...
Chapter 28.8 ~ Application to the module
December 31 (2022)
Initially I wanted to try to damage as little of the terrain as possible.
But given the irregularities and color differences, I still decided to remove the entire inner area down to the base plate with a chisel.
Chapter 28.9 ~ The New Courtyard
Januari 1, 2023
Chapter 28.10 ~ Attributes
Januari 3, 2023
With small pieces soft tissue a made a pair of trousers...
The pleats have been filed away from the pants. The door will be put in position later...
Faller specially sent me a missing doghouse for the half-timbered house (130226). However, this larger version was included with this model (191770).
Because I won't be using the woodwork from this kit anyway, I can use it to make two tables for the MIttelaltermarkt.
The wine barrels will later be placed on the market.
I know these parts somehow have to do with cheese making or butchery,
but the manual of this particular kit says nothing about it, is obviously meant for another kit (which turned out to be Faller 180 449).
I asked Faller Kundenservice for an explanation and at the same time wrote to several cheese farms and museums.
Just lovely gadgets to use at the Mittelaltermarkt.
The museums couldn't help me any further on the cheese making attribues.
However, on Monday January 9, 2023 I received an email from Faller regarding my request for further information.
It was all I needed to know regarding the specific parts, as well as the additional manual to assemble the other parts.
I'm not generous with praise, but Faller takes their Kundernservice very seriously.
Sehr geehrter Herr Osterthun,
Die Zubehörteile sollen folgendes darstellen:
1B: Schlachttisch / Schlachtschragen (Metzger)
1C: Schnitzbank / Ziehbank
1D: Hobelbank (Schreinertisch)

Zu den Teilen 4/22 bis 4/26. Siehe Anleitung Artikel 180449 auf Seite 2 (B).
Wir hoffen die Informationen helfen Ihnen weiter, bei Fragen stehen wir gerne zur Verfügung.
Chapter 28.11 ~ Vegetation: foliage, lavender and hydrangea
Januari 4, 2023
In addition to the many boxes of Noch that I use so far, I now also have two variants of Faller.
However, this material is tougher to tear and carries less green to the fibers.
In any case, the lavender is very successful. I did update the too much green later with brown,
because lavender usually has a woody inner structure compared to the green twigs that carry the soft purple flowers.
Just this one place I had in mind for a strip of lavender...
When decorating, I went through various boxes and found several gadgets that
certainly fit this winery.
Remarkably, this old Kibri signboard bore the inscription: 'Weinkastell'. That was the deciding factor.
A nice decoration for the fairly bare wall, although the half-timbering and the shrubs made it look nice.
Especially that child in typical early 1900s clothing, with an apron and a bow in her hair! Lovely and most fitting!
Behind the wall is the third wheel with a broken spoke, which once belonged to the Artitec beer wagon, which is now in the yard!
These are the details that dot the i's and cross the t's.
Chapter 28.12 ~ Even at the back
Januari 4, 2023
In addition to the lavender bushes mentioned above, the hydrangeas are also a beautiful creation by Faller.
Chapter 28.13 ~ Preparations at the Cochemer Bahn
Januari 5, 2023
This morning I started to provide the old city wall - which originally marked the edge of the vineyard and the end of the model railway -
with an engraved stone structure on the outside. With the extension of this module, it is imperative.
I know, part of it will soon disappear underground behind the wine cellar.
Which reminds me of the Western Wall of the Old City in Jerusalem, which is also two-thirds underground.
Since I got this small set with forest animals, I was thinking about the quick brown fox,
not "jumping over the lazy dog", but 'who spoils the vineyard'.
I think to put him on top of the city wall, after the Song of Solomon 2, 15"
"Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards..."
Chapter 28.14 ~ Finally...
Januari 5, 2023
With some final painting I call it a day and I can declare this module 'ready'.
The German Shepherd Max has changed owners and has been transferred from the station to the wine farm.
Chapter 28.1 ~ Outdoors...
Januari 6, 2023
On request of Leo Cheung I made some pictures outdoors.
On January 12, 2023, the illumination was finished.
A little Monet-ish...
