Thanks :)
It's just some chemical industry...

Hi Stefan,
Are you able to tell Sky the make etc.? :) :)


It was a "Vollmer" construction set (respectively 2 sets which I switched together), but it's not in the actual catalogue.

I built a "Disco wagon" out of an old Maerklin wagon.
There's a rotating disco ball in it, disco lights, a red soft light and a sound module which can play 5 songs.
In the middle of my video you can hear BJH's Galadriel for the "cuddle song time":
https://youtu.be/nYqFKzg2NKk

Full song list:
1) "Stayin' alive", Bee Gees, 1977
2) "New York Groove", Hello, 1975
3) "Galadriel", Barclay James Harvest, 1971
4) "Let's get back together", Promises, 1978
Fifth song on the sound module is not in the video ("Rock 'n' Roll Love Letter", Bay City Rollers, 1977)
The songs are on a micro SD card in the sound module so they can be changed.
All functions can be started and stopped separately with different switches.

And here's a video with the wagon roof open: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZr0nggdzZc

Looks great Stefan. I'm half surprised that there aren't any naughty shenanigans going on in a dark corner - German teenagers in a disco being what they are !! (Of course, such a thing would never happen in a British disco, we're far too prudish for that sort of thing :lol: )
Cheers

Oh, of course I have some ideas :roll:
But I know it's forbidden to post such things here in this family friendly forum so I didn't build in such scenes :lol:
(which doesn't mean that I totally gave up my ideas for some "scenes behind the disco wagon" :mrgreen:
