Nature of the beast I am afraid. Having said that I have a pair on eBay for £6. Fairly low resolution wheels.

There is already a Mk1 Transit on Shapeways...................... (Not mine)


Yes - and have you seen the cost of it? over a tenner at last sight. That's £40 per carflat! There has to be a cheaper way...

I think that the NGS would have gone the other way if Oxford Diecast did not have such a high minimum order threshold. If you want a highly detailed 3D printed Mk1 Transit then the RailNscale one is about the price you will have to pay. If you want something more impressionist this designer might be able to help. He already does the same model Transits as the current Oxford Mk5.

About £22 for eight plus shipping.


I like the way Bob is developing the n-Train versions.

The versions I have been showing of are Mk 6/7, I believe.

Excuse focus. New phone and having fun with it's camera.

Small fix to do for the inside. Leaves too big a gap by the windscreen and tailgate. Other than that, very pleased.
