Hi Steve & all,
Apologies for continued delays - just waiting for David to get back to normal after retirement.
Cant give a date or any further info other than we were in the process of splitting all the chassis to take the superior Nbrass bearings.
Regards
Russ

Hi
Russell thanks for up date and chassis will be better for the bearings, looking forward to it - is it intended "we" obtain transfers direct from Steve at Railtec?

thanks again
Robert

Hi Roberet

"is it intended "we" obtain transfers direct from Steve at Railtec?"

I certainly hope so!!

In theory its only the etches that will be sent out direct from us on receipt of a valid shapeways order number.

Thanks for the interest.  All out of my hands. I believe that 3DR are having some problems on a personal level, so this has been halted at the moment.  A great shame, as it's almost there. :(

May I ask if this project is now dead and buried just awaiting the headstone and wreath?

As the alternative does anybody know of a GEM or Skytrex white metal kit of this or similar crane to buy?

Gents,
I wish this project seasonal joy and hope for completion in 2020, the works I have seen at shows in the last few years is truly excellent and given it is the work of two of the forum in spare time it has got so near .
It is worthy of note it is such a complex subject none of the regular suspects in rtr production have got one to market despite good votes in forum polls.   
So hopefully if we all wish on stars  etc.. we may be lucky

Hi Bob,

Yes - RTR from Osborns - great model.

Just a shame it's for an older era.

Whereas...

This one is a lot more modern!

Thanks

And my latest 3d pipe dream a 144/148 scale Krupp D311 Doppellok to fit in with Dora and Leopold.


AKA the V188 - Rocco did green/red versions  in 1/160 and you can still find them at shows / eBay. - they complement the Lemke 1/160 Leopold Nicely.

I have  2 in the Walli camouflage scheme ( grey with spaghetti!)

I’ve just noticed the date on this post - 2013!! Where’s my sonic screwdriver??
