Here is a better version - slightly larger to match a Farish Mk1 coach body.  The printing lines can be removed with a fiberglass scratch pen.





Morning David! That looks very very good.  Do you think if you changed the print orientation the lines would then be more easily removable if they appeared across the Y axis instead, so that they end up being horizontal?

Just a thought
Regards Paul


The orientation does not matter as the lines are circular, like the height line on an OS map.

The final versions will be printed at twice this resolution - at 50 micron -  but my resin is old and too thick to do this reliably.  At this point I am using the old resin for tests on the dimension so I can figure out the best coach bodies to use etc.

This print is at 50 micron and you can see the improvement in the lines but the print is less distinct with the old resin.  Mind you its the size of a thumb nail and the eye does not see most of what the camera sees.

Adam Warr at Electra Graphics has already prepared a trial set of vinyls for a previous 303 project but could not source the cab ends.  Adam has been laid low but i'm hoping that if I can make the ends available he might resurrect the project at some point.

My plan is to make very good masters (no lines and smooth) from which I can create a mold for resin casting.  I am also experimenting with clear 3D printing resin to allow transparent windows, but they are harder to get the surface quality.

So yes they might very well be available, but a bit of work to do yet.

I want to build some Glasgow "Blue Trains"   :D
