Title: Stecksystem XXL - Prototyp
Post by: Customizer on April 12, 2019, 13:54:08
Hello Friends,

recently I thought it would not be bad if the XXL figures (60 cm) also had buildings.  :lol:
I have considered the Playmobil plug system to build in XXL.
At the beginning a bit calculated, then consider what kind of material do I take ??
It should be fast to build, from cheap materials and easy to transport and also easy to recycle?!
At Christmas I had worked a lot with Styrofoam for my diorama which worked very well.
The first plates bought in the hardware store and tried .......

SOME WORDS:
It's just a test, a prototype, everything looks even after Dalmatian pattern. (currently no white Styrofoam with us): rolleyes
Also, I have not incorporated any masonry and colored it looks simple.
But everything will come.
I want to look first it works!


It should be as close as possible to the original and 100% compatible as the original !!
So also double storey etc.

A dream of mine is later to build a half-timbered house.
BUT let's start with "SMALL".
With a tower for the Lord Knight.  :lol:

So the first step is made the corner connector, he has a height of about 110 cm.
I work with a multiplier of 8.
7.5 cm x 8 = 60 cm !!
So far, everything works as expected!  :rock:
More soon.......

Letīs continue ....

Next we come to the "window wall element II"
Something more complex like a corner connector but it went fast.

Playmobil saves on the back a little of plastic, my front and back are identical.
Which makes the part more stable.
The wall structure and ornament comes as soon as all 4 walls are.

ENJOY !!

Small information about the window wall element:
Height: approx. 113 cm, width: approx. 64 cm, weight: just 675 g !!

Then a look from the bottom, it should also be pluggable on each other.
So also two floors !!

More soon.......

Those giant wall pieces are very good, Customizer. In fact I thought they were regular size pieces until I noticed the leaves and flowers for scale! Your work is so precise and accurate, the results are outstanding!

Hi,

a little info about the connectors:
What I noticed in the connectors, they touch on the top and bottom of the main element.
The connecting nose in the middle, however have distance up and down.
(Donīt find the word for connecting nose ???)  8}
The chambers are not the same size, because the center of the upper and lower bridge was not calculated from the half of the chamber.

Even if a connector is an inconspicuous part, for me it is a masterpiece of Hans Beck thought through to the last detail !!

LOVE THIS STECKSYSTEM !!  :love:

I understand "connecting nose" perfectly!

(You could also call it a 'tab')

I'm loving these little details Andi!
