Salmon and Sturgeons with cranes (using 3D prints)
« on: March 20, 2018, 10:50:26 am »
The cranes have arrived  :bounce:

and they are exquisite.

Available from Shapeways https://www.shapeways.com/shops/snowwolflair
(at cost price +£1 to cover the CAD work)





This is the first post of a new thread where I will be building a set of Salmon wagons from NGS kits, hopefully followed by the conversion of Sturgeons form Revolution trains when they arrive

I think you are correct, I have seen a photo in a book showing Salmons with cranes in a train with Sturgeons with sides pulled by a class 37 c.1970.  My cranes were intended for Salmons and pre-date the Revolution announcement. :)

I'm looking for drawings for the alternate crane for the Sturgeons, as I might consider doing a set of these as well if I could find a set.

Can anyone help?

Those are the Geismar type which the NGS do and if the master is lost then I'll do them in CAD.

That would be great as this design is secondary to my Salmon project.  Think about getting them 3D printed, the results are really good.

@Snowwolflair

Look very neat & tidy indeed. Are the samples in your photo FUD or FXD?

FXD but they should be just as good in FUD.

I have put together one of the NGS Salmons to see how it will look.  I still need to file and tidy up the assembled model, however it gives a good idea of what it will look like.  I also need to add the bolsters, a coat of paint, transfers and code 40 rails, and then it will really look the part.

Out of curiosity can someone advise at what point these cranes started getting added to the Salmons?

Block color with no detailing or weathering but its conveys a good indication of how they will turn out.
