Just completed a short interest article that I've been meaning to finish for ages but I'd like one of our German-speaking friends to give me a correct translation for the English term 'cutaway', which could also be called a 'Sectional' view.

https://www.marklin-users.net/cookee_nz/gbmc/cutaway/Marklin_Cutaway_Views.htm

I already have the term "Schnittmodell", would this be considered an accurate term, and what you would expect to use if doing a search for such items?

TIA

Hi Cookee,

I took this photo of a cut 3015 in the Märklin-Museum in 2004.

I can't imagine a better German expression than "Schnittmodell" for a cutaway model as the one shown by Markus Schild. "Aufgeschnittenes Modell" would also be a possibility if you want a bit of variety in your text.

Yes that is the same term that was used for some items when I attended Trade school/Berufs Schule in Germany.

One of these models recently sold on Ebay - 1200 Euros !!

Whether it's a factory original demonstration model or a self-made we'll never know - here's some images for when they expire....

Going to be hard to make that run with only one brush, and yet the commutator looks used.

Wonder if someone required a new commutator in another loco Confused

I like the way they painted the cut edge red to match the rest of the livery!

In days gone by the engineering apprentices used to be given the task of making cutaways. They can be wonderful things. I have a couple somewhere but they are cutaways of industrial valves (gate valves etc)

IIRC recent cutaway models did this as well, vis Br53 with condensing tender.
