3D Peckett B2 0-6-0
« on: June 19, 2019, 08:48:18 AM »
Anyone with a foot in the 'Oribbly Oversize camp will be aware that Hornby have produced several very popular industrial locos in recent years (any N producers listening?).

Their latest is the Peckett B2, which complements their W4 very nicely. There are several attractive liveries offered:



(From https: //www.rmweb.co.uk/community/uploads/monthly_12_2018/post-1-0-45525400-1545637010.jpg)

Although I already have a B2, (based on the Peco/GEM whitemetal body,) I decided to retrograde my B3 3D design to give me the chance to own a similarly proportioned pair of older and newer Peckett 0-6-0s, as operated at Brynlliw Colliery

I've now added that design to Shapeways also.

I've decided that I wanted a Peckett, so I dived in and bought one. It arrived the other day and I think it looks really good.

Thank you for the order. I'm looking forward to seeing what people can do with these!

Any chance of adding the body detailing?

I was focused on making some easily swapable bodies, and the reality of 3D printing today is lots of priming and rubbing down before painting.

I thought about including more details, but the Smooth Fine Detail Plastic is quite brittle, so things like safety valves, pipes, reversing rods, etc, if desired, are better added from wire after surface preparation.

This technique sucks you in with the promise of perfectability, but you have to draw a line at some point. I chose to include handrails and smoke box door details and leave it there.

Alternative domes, valves and chimneys are available from N Brass Locos and Superglue easily to SFDP.

After a few weeks away, I was delighted to find a parcel from Shapeways on my return. After making a couple of test prints, this was my first "production" B2. Here it is after initial priming:



In order to get some variation into my mostly black and green loco collection, I shall probably finish it in blue, like the Hornby example above.

OK, well that's most of the paint on, lining next!



The lower boiler and narrower tank distinguish the 1905 B2 from its beefier 1933 successor, the B3.

Although I designed this loco with a hollow tank to take some Liquid Gravity or similar ballast weight, I thought I'd check adhesion on my very up and down, round and round layout without any.

Here's the body mounted on a standard Minitrix 0-6-0 Chassis, pulling four Minitrix 8-plank wagons, the last of which contains granite ballast, up my ~1/25, 11" radius gradient:

I'm impressed once more by these amazing old mechanisms!

OK, well that's the lining and lettering on.



I chickened out of using a mapping pen once again. The lines are cut from white decal paper, as narrow as I consistently could, (approx. 0.4mm) and the outer edges drawn on With a 0.1mm Staedler pen. Lining decals are of course available  from Fox Transfers etc. A brass maker's plate needed cabside, then that's about it for this one.

Thank you - it's been really satisfying to learn some totally new skills, and to make some things I couldn't previously buy - now everybody can!

Lovely work. Especially like the Ford liveried B3. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thanks - it's amazing what Google turns up. Inspired by the old Peco catalogue, I set about looking for commercial liveries but found relatively few. I think these engines mostly pre-dated 'branding', often just having their initial lined/unlined factory finish (leaf green, dark green or black), a brass maker's plate and perhaps a cast nameplate too. I guess it was mostly those that survived into the sixties and seventies that got the full company logo and colour palette treatment.
