I got the first two coaches all printed with a chassis that is happy to go round 2nd radius curves.

The complete coaches are the 1st Saloon and the 3rd/1st with some luggage space in the middle.

I also took a photo of the interiors.

Going to give these a good test on a few layouts while I work on the windows.  I should have some vidoes of them in action soon.

Its been a while since an update but the final fit and finish has taken more work than I expected.  I have also been playing with the print settings which has improved the quality no end.

All the Coaches are finished now including the 3rd/brake.  Windows are still absent but I've tested the window parts in the grey resin and they came out well, just got to get them printed in clear Resin.

A correction on my earlier post.  They aren't great round 2nd radius curves at the moment but are fine round 3rd radius.

Time for some paint I think.

These look great.  Any chance you would like to make them available for others?  Even just the CAD ?

Sorry to go off thread but I'd just like to say hello to Ben as I used to follow your posts on another forum.

Are you still in the army ?

How's your old mucker Kevin Knight ?

Best regards,


Joe

With respect @joe cassidy isn't that what the 'PM' system is for?

( Reading that back it sounds like I'm having a pop, but I'm not I assure you, it was meant more like " Why not send him a PM and have a decent chat". Please, no offence intended)
