I have pledged 20.00 to this kickstart project because a well engineered n scale bogie for motorising is of great interest to me.   I have previously expressed the opinion that some of the bogies/chassis offered by Dapol and GF are not that well designed/engineered and this might just push them into upping their game.
I wish the venture well.

It could be a major step forward, not only to the N gauge fraternity at large, but also to the 2FS people as well.

Good call!  :thumbsup:

While I am unable to do any major development work at present, I am playing around with the design for the bogie housing. Just ordered some test prints from Shapeways, which I will use to try and work out the best way to hold the two halves together.

As it stands, I could do a clip fit, or some very small self tapping screws.

Bob I would stick to your plan for now an see how you get on, you reward plan is clear and simple. Alot of projects have 10-50 starting levels with no physical reward, so I have no issue at all and rather proud to be your first backer. At the moment I have no interest in this other than supporting innovation and you.
