3D Class 92
« on: May 14, 2012, 11:40:23 AM »
I've had some information from Russ regarding a 3D bodied Class 92 on a Farish Class 60 chassis and am passing it on to get feedback.

Please find attached the phots Iv managed to get so far - its a right pain to phot as its see through!! Dedicated battery box to follow...
 
My end of this is chassis reworking & dimensions etc - iv no tallent in 3D (wish I did). I build worsley stuff instead. All I did was say to David that if there was a model that people wanted it would be a 92. (I know there are others but I cant think of any loco that fits on exisiting chassis that isnt already covered). This is sat on a farish class 60 chassis thats had the pcb lowered. (Mounting lumps filed of the chassis and one screw cut down as the blind hole was not deep enough, insulating tape under the pcb and thats the total mods to the chassis so far - dead easy. "David" is the 3D god whos done this. Its been a roller coaster of information....no time for headaches! Need some paint on this puppy to get some decent shots. Wasnt planning on posting on the group till around wednesday but its been such a quiet day today (I can view but not post from work) may aswell stir up some activity!
 
And yes it will be available for sale once weve ironed out any niggles - constructive criticism welcome! Were aiming for "as good as reasonably practical".

Hi

I don't suppose the Dapol one will appear in the future so I will be interested to see how this looks with paint on but so far that is very promising.

Cheers

That's a very nice bit of work.  Probably much harder than I have any idea of.  If I had use for one on my Reading layout, i would.

Would be good to have another option for those without 500 notes to spend. This technology is amazing.

That is a stunning bit of 3D Printing - hats off to the CAD artist! Can't wait to get one of these beasties - my cheapo GWR Green 60 is now looking ready for a makeover  :)

Now, with all this recent talk of Class 390s, I have a few ideas in that direction of anyone cares to discuss it off-list!

No doubt about it, 3D print is going to revolutionise low volume stuff especially in smaller scales (because of the way scales grow in volume the price scales rapidly as your scale goes up)

It's also now at the point where most of the stuff I am feeding it as bulk packs (buffers, pullman lamps etc) are both cheaper and better quality that white metal and in most respects than brass turnings.

I can't see me doing any future white metal work except when I want the weight (which is one reason it's still handy for coach battery boxes - weight low down).

Another thing that is cool is the home systems, while hardly mainstream yet, can print in cheap materials and also biodegradable ones. PLA, one of the materials used for testing/prototyping is a plastic made from natural materials so after you've finished you can smash it up, put it in the compost and in a year it'll be gone !

Brilliant piece of work, I knew there was somthing I was forgetting when I submitted my votes for new RTR locos....this might mean I actually saved a vote!

Looking forward to seeing a painted one.

Hi there

Looks pretty good so far, but I think a blast of grey primer would be very helpful to confirm that the ends are "right".

For example, the translucent material makes it hard to see the proportions of the windscreens compared to the cabside windows - the windscreens should be taller.

cheers

Ben A.

Hello Ben & everyone else who has responded to this.

I put the pics and Russ's description up as he wasn't sure how to best get the details to the forum.
Russ is on nights until later in the week but will then, I hope, pick up the production story.
I don't know who the mystery 'David' is, but I reckon he's made a great first effort that can be improved with feedback from those interested.

Looks like Class 60 chassis may be in demand in the not too distant future!

Fingers crossed it will be primered and photed on Saturday - weather dependant.  As soon as theres more phots I'll get them on here so you can hopefuly see more. Few more tweeks to measure for before it leaves here.
