..


the models are printed with  lasers scanning a tank of photosensitive plastic, and  are almost free of the striations the "ink-jet " style printers produce.


Ah, so that's how come they're so crisp. :beers:

Can anyone recall the name of the 'liquid' glazing agent please?
Is it something like Glue 'n' Glaze?
My poor cattle lorry driver has just suffered a bird strike!

the knack is to get some wooden cocktail sticks and a blob of GnG on a scrap of clear plastic.

get a drop in the stick and put in a corner of the window, and draw ir around the edge of the window

the glue should follow, and then form a film. allow to dry flat and there you are!

if you want windscreen wipers, drop a small section of staple onto the film.

if not happy. wash off with warm water and try again!

Ive just done the same with my cattle truck ,it really does finish the model off nicely  .
Mourice does most of the printing but he  shares the painting with Micheal.
The models are 3D printed on one of the NEW type of printers done with a laser and printed upside down from a bath of plastic which is why the curves on the models are so smooth.
There are a lot more  models coming out , and they are open to sugestions if you think something would sell well.but might be able to do special commisions if they get time.

I think the Bedford is a good type to model, along with their other recent introductions. I don't require a cattle lorry as I made a few of my own a couple of years back, using some B.T. flatbed lorries and some bargain buy P&D Marsh cattle lorry wooden bodies. Amazingly they still produce this whitemetal cattle lorry with a solid lump for the cab, but the wooden body is a good rendition.

The Bedford S type chassis and cab would be interesting on it's own though, allowing you to put on your own prefered type of body.

I have no idea how sales of these laser printed vehicles are going for Osborne's, but they have IMO entered into an area that has tremendous scope. How often we hear people say that the main manufacturer of N vehicles comes up with some oddballs, overlooking some obvious potential models covering the decades.

Some time back in response to their asking for suggestions I mentioned the Bedford T.K.   Now this was introduced around a decade later than the period I model, but hey, they really were everywhere with every type of body fitted.  I look forward to their future releases of vehicles, especially some 1950s vans. The Ford "Pop" type of van springs to mind...was it called a Thames van, a name perpetuated on later models?    But that's just me, many others will have their own wish list that fits in with their period of modelling.

not vehicular but as an addition to the railway wagons they have developed, a lowmac of some sort, similar to the Airfix/Dapol/Hornby one would be a sure fire winner!! especially as they already have a most suitable traction engine to load onto it.

The only lowmac I know of in N is the N gauge Society kit which is of a 1 off wagon type.

Best wishes
Simon

Off on a slight tangent, I think there are plenty of commercial vehicles options available right now.

So, if you're listening Michael and Maurice, I'd love to have more 1950s and 1960s cars. Austins, Hillmans, Fords, Rovers, BMC Farina range, etc.
