That's all for tonight.  It was quite complicated to figure out a realistic representation of the tamper mechanism which will be a separate print item.

The centre part is bit of a boring box with a very complicated bit below.

The majority of the blocks are now done, with still quite a lot of detailing required.  I have had to be careful with clearances as the real tamper is not designed for R1 radius curves.  :)

I'm happy with this.  The next stage is to design the tamping gear.

I just sent it to Shapeways to print in case they decide to close UPS air postage soon  :worried:

I have also added test prints for bogie pivots for the N&PW-RT models so they can use simple bogies rather than the parts form a TM20 power bogie.  I will leave the N&PW-RT prints designed for TM20 parts as it allows these units to be motorised with minor modifications if wanted.

Assuming these additional parts work I plan to list all three models on Shapeways  in a few weeks.

A bit of fettling and assembly brings them to painting detail which is next.  A few bits in the post, bogies etc. so I hope they make it before its a complete lock down.

Slowly getting there.  The structures are quite complicated and 0.5mm brass wires are being added for roof supports.  Painting is being done piecemeal as required during the assembly with a final detail paint to follow once the structures are complete.
