These are the development models I created on the basis of casting clear resin shells for use with Electra vinyls.

I have allowed a few of my 3D items to be available on Shapeways.

Most have had some test prints done and not all of them are N Gauge I'm afraid.

Yes I will. Together with the first of my joint ventures with Adam. We shall now be looking to grow the range of products as my confidence grows with the production techniques.

Test casting from a test mould.

Master by 3D printing, cleaned up, then mould made.

Great, I look forward to having a good look. And I'll bring my camera for a few snaps if that's okay.

I was very impressed by the class 310 that Adam posted pics of on the DEMU forum. Were you involved with the mouldings for that?

Only from the point of view of making the moulds and castings.

Superb Bob!  If you can make something as fragile as this, then you can make anything in N Gauge. :thumbsup: :D

Not a good picture, but it is very small
