BHE Railcar
« on: September 17, 2014, 12:36:44 PM »
I've just been on Utube  Tim Hitch has put a clip on showing the Railcar on the NGS test circle, 9inch set track curves . In search type in BHE Railcar at TINGS.
Thanks Tim If someone can put a link to it I would be very grateful.
On there it says TOMIX chassis it's actualy TOMYTEC TM12R all you need to do is file the front and back of the protrusion with two holes on the chassis down to half of the thickness and the jobs done.

Looks very nice but painting/transfering the complex curved lining is going to be interesting.  :hmmm:

 :thankyousign: Sprintex for video link , as to the lining I agree with Karhedron  the lining is going to be VERY tricky way beyond my capabilities but I'msure that a lot of our members are .I will just have to put up with no lining unless I can pay someone to line it for me

Just a thought Bob, could you not alter the CAD so the lining is slightly (maybe 0.2mm) raised edge on the body in the places the lining should be, this would make it easy to paint and not obtrusive when the whole body is finished... it's a trick I used on the doors of the 128 I made to assist in detailing.

The lining is multiple colours and transfer based for GWR. I think a raised ridge would actually make it worse not better!

I agree, keep it smooth and we can line with transfers much more easily.

I have spoken to Captain Electra about the possibility of vinyls for lining (in GWR days the lining was quite complex and there are also the branding elements). For this to be possible, the sides will definitely need to be smooth.

Hi,

Could the TM13R be used as an alternative chassis?

Not sure what the diferance is I Think it's wheel spacing or colour but it needs to be 19 m  so should be OK .
Ray wasn't all that happy with test prints talking with Shapeways to improve the production ones . Electra graphics might be the answer will speak to Ray at Colchester show on Sunday. My one will be there.

Hi,

I've found out the difference between TM12R and TM13R is the distance between axle centres, TM12R is 14mm and TM13R is 16mm.

If Ray does sort out the finish and releases the railcar that bogie wheelspacing  might mean that it won't go round sharp curves the TM12R went round the NGS 9inch circle you could always cut out the panels over the bogies so they swivel more ,After a while the real ones did because the fitters were to lazy to refit them, but it depends wether you want the wheels to look right.Will let every one know what Ray says on Monday after we talk about it over the weekend.
