Hi Bob, I tried using enamel paint with some of the first 3D printed models I purchased but I found the enamel paint never went off. I have managed to use enamel since, but it requires a lot of cleaning and some good coats of primer before it works!

Kevin

FUD has a similar solvent base as turpentine.

Halfords grey undercoat with a good coverage is best to undercoat and acrylic is better than oil based paints.

Hello all,

Thanks for the comments!

As some of you may know, I am currently studying abroad for a year, hence the lack of replies!

@fisherman I have just had a look at the photos of your Sentinel and have to say it looks splendid with all those brightly coloured wagons:)

Cheers,

Alex

I still haven't got mine done but I've been trying to work on it recently. The motor worked just fine after I fitted the resistor (shown below).



Acceleration was very smooth and slow speed control seemed good. Then I left the motor on my 'workbench' cutting mat for a while as I worked on other projects and pondered a permanent wagon with pick-ups for the Sentinel. Now I've tested the motor again and it won't go at all.

I can see the slightest flicker of activity on the meter when I put a bit of pressure on the motor while its on the track, but there's no motion, forwards or backwards. Something's going in but it's not doing anything. Is it that easy to burn out these things?
