Great looking model of a very unusual prototype. :)

Very impressive. I am really enjoying seeing this come to fruition.

Hello all,

I have been slowly getting the details done! I have completed one end including glazing and put the transfers on one side so far:)

I have detailed the buffer beam and painted the buffers as well as glazing the windows, the white marks in the windows will dry completely clear:)


36006 has had her name and numberplates fitted on one side and I think they look good in dark blue!


Not the greatest photo but it shows how imposing the loco is!


Cheers,

Alex

This is a really impressive project. However, the photos rather emphasise the growth lines produced by the 3D-printer. For some strange reason these appear to be vertical at the front but horizontal along the sides yet the printing of the body appears to have been in one go. Is this correct or were the ends printed separately?

It also appears as though the rivet detail has disappeared along the sides. The rivets were clear on the CAD so have they been rubbed off as the bodywork was sanded or did the printer miss them?

In retrospect, do you think the appearance might have been better if the CAD had been submitted for printing with the body vertical rather than horizontal so that the print lines come out vertically on the finished product?

FUD production is a funny thing and Shapeways will rotate an item to optimise space.

The ultra fine FUD now available will be a lot better but more expensive so not for prototyping.
