Looking good. To be honest having taken a step back from modelling for a year or so I can't believe how out of date I am already with 3D printing. It really is developing at a rate of knots!


Hi Gareth, I feel that I should clarify that these prints have still required cleaning up as FXD is simply FUD but printed in much finer layers. You've still got the usual issues where the material was supported in wax during the printing process although, from the two prints I've got now, not as badly as FUD.

I've had quite a bit of interest in the V1 and I'm wondering if it is worth creating some masters (covering the variations) and then casting them in resin to save people having to fettle the prints themselves (which apparently is something that many dislike).

Wonderful work Steve!  Now, finish that H Class, please!!!  :D

It is being worked on but there are a couple of things ahead in the queue at the moment and some experiments to conduct. I've still got to decide how I'm going to sort out the weight issue which will actually affect how this ends up evolving in the design.

It is my intention to bring back Atso-Cad Models properly but developing things does take time and I still suffer from the occasional bad day with the depression (although that is much better at the moment).

Here's my H Class converted from a Dapol M7. Unfortunately photos of its construction are lost in Photobucket but I did have an article in the NG Journal a few years back documenting its build, just can't remember when. Earlyish 2013.



4/13 p64, with thanks to the NGS Journal index and a quick check of the real thing...
