I’m working with QGIS 3.2 Bonn and I try to build a workflow in the graphic modeler. The model aims to build variable buffers depending on values from two attribute fields of an input vector layer. For calculating the distances for the dynamic buffers I use the field calculator and the input fields to the field calculator are addressed by their distinct names.
This only works as long as the attribute fields of the input layer always have the same names, so I wanted to modify the model for making it more flexible to other input vector layers with different field names. For this I tried to use the Vector-Field variable as input to the field calculator. In the Variable distance buffer tool, I managed to use one Vector-Field as input variable, but with the field calculator I haven't been succesfull yet.
Is it possible to use Vector Field as input in the modeler, or do I have to write a script for that?
Would be really glad if you could help me.
(I also searched in gis-stackexchange and the net but couldn’t find an answer to this for QGIS3.x.
I found only other questions with similar problems but without any solution:

or questions refering to QGIS2.x:

An extract of my model with the part I don't get worked:
Here a screenshot of the field calculator and my idea of how to use it:
