poly-carbonate lubricant on the axles

Que??

Better than normal loco lubricant?

It’s an oil that does not eat plastic as it is a dry lubricant of polycarbonate molecules.  I used to use it to stop squeaks on British Leyland internal body panels.

I didn't follow this thread initially as it wasn't really in my realm of interest. Having 'forgotten' about it, I clicked on the latest posts, holy cow!

Impressive doesn't even come close, I feel very humble as I slowly assemble my 6 wheel x-fish kit.

Will definitely be following this thread closely from now on.

The tool wagon which is necessary to fit between the front MFS-100 and the loco or the chute of the MFS-100 would hit the loco cab.





I wonder if Modern Image Models can be persuaded to sell this separately and add a second frame to the other end.

There’s also a different wagon for some of these tool wagons, deeper sided, does anyone know what these have been converted from?   (I don’t have a photo, but a quick search of “network rail YSA” brings them up. They look annoyingly familiar).

Best regards

Iain

Hi
I thought that this may interest you on how far I have got on the cad design for the MFS-Ds it has taken me about 2-3 weeks to get this far.
Thanks to Snowwolflair for sending us the designs for it.

Looking very good.  Even although its early if you are planning to print them on Shapeways it is worth downloading them to see if it passes the material design rules.

I have already tried them on shapeways had a bit of a problem to start with but they now work. Hopefully going to get a test print soon I will post a picture when I get it.

I have started on the block color s for the HOBC itself.  A lot of repetitive masking  :worried:

I have nothing but the highest respect for those of our members who produce such amazing models.

I [briefly] tried 3D models many years ago, but gave up with the resulting pebbledash that I never seemed to be able to totally get rid of.

Test print is now on order in fine detail plastic. Note the previous images are not the design I am as they are missing the finished cab and I have also added some more rails to the side.

After a pause for the summer i'm back on the HOBC. 

This is what comes next, studding photos and annotating drawings and a photo of the model to show what needs added, painted, transfers added and windows etc.

WOW, You should be applauded, this looks absolutely stunning, out of my era but very, very, very impressive.

Looking forward to seeing the finished article.
I like to start each day the same, sit up and take a deep breath!
First objective for the day achieved, woohoo!!!

Not that I would ever have such a thing on my transition era layout, but I have been following this thread with great interest and think you're making a stonking job of it. Before the thread I didn't even know such a thing existed :no: :dunce:
