The camper is particularly needed.

I can honestly say that I have absolutely no use for these.

That said, these are some of the BEST n gauge vehicles I think I've ever seen. I know you're having some grief in your life at the moment bloke, but these are superb. All credit to you.

There are a LWB van and a LWB Crew Cab Pickup awaiting 3D printing. I will be adding a typical pair of supermarket 'Home Delivery' vans.

Also ready for 3D printing.

Further progress will have to wait until after my move. Fingers crossed, within the next couple of weeks.

I have some of the Van on sale now, with slightly rough wheels.

I hope to have the range being released between my move and TINGS.

I hope to be showing of additions to my range of lorries shortly as well.

What's the car's prototype?

Off the top of my head 2005 Range Rover. Their are compromises on the window posts due to physical constraints.

The grey models, in the original post, are produced using the new HP Jet Fusion 3D printer that is now available for makers to trial.

I am afraid that it does not match up to the HP hype. Don't get me wrong, it is not bad. The cost is just a fraction more than Shapeways WSF, thickness tolerances are nearly as good as FUD.

I could be wrong, but it seems like a very expensive machine, which takes WSF material and 'super glues' it, rather than fuse it with a laser........................

These models will be produced in a mix of polished WSF (not Shapeways) for the bodies and FUD for the chassis/wheels (Shapeways)

If people want, I can add a body/chassis to Shapeways so people can buy in FUD.

Any chance of a Mk2 Transit?

Or a Mark 1 Transit - whichever would have been around in the early 1970s (Carflats - need loads!!!)

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...

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

I may have a look at the Mk2.............

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.
