These look so good I will want more than one.

How big is the production run? You might be surprised with the demand!.

Davecttr,

They are a kit,the 3d printed bits can easily be re-ordered so I am assuming that the body can be done easily and more ordered when they need to be.

Hi Dave

Production run number 1 is 50 units. If we run out we will do more.

Would be nice if they sold well - will justify all the time, effort and investment.

Etches have been ordered and thats the last stage as the names we tried from precision decals (scaled down from OO) worked fine.

Regards
Russ

In good news Russ.

I'm off to the shed in a bit so hopefully by the end of tomorrow I will have a painted body! Won't have any decals on it but it will at least be painted and varnished ready for them.

Hi Alistair

Etches have been tweaked slightly only in the area of the side grill height so if yours look a bit short let me know and I'll send you a new fret.

That is incredible - I'll have to get one when finances allow.

One question - will the insulators be available separately? They would be ideal to go with some of my AC unit kits.

Hi Adam

They are a seperate item so no reason why not - unless shapeways have another brain fart and reject them for no good reason.

I've never been THAT interested in a Class 92, but your painted model has made me very tempted.  :)

I am having some issues putting the primer coat on to this. I have cleaned this completely, 3 times in an ultrasonic cleaner and under the tap with a tooth brush and washing up liquid. But I can't seem to get the paint to stick to the body. What do other use on resin bodies.

Most of the trial stuff I have done, I used a car aerosol primer......................

Never had any sticking issues.

I clean mine in an old lunch box full of white spirit.  I then wash in soapy water, rinse, allow to dry.  I then sprayed with Hycote Grey Primer (bought off of eBay from a car shop).  Make sure it's an acrylic spray and not enamel (that was my first mistake  :doh:).
