Can I put an early plea in to folk who buy this rather stunning body. I'm prepared to pay good money for discarded class 60 bodies, I could do with a couple. Please pm me.

Many thanks
Kirky

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.

Regards
RussH

Whilst I've absolutely no idea if it looks like the prototype or not, it does look good.  8)
Just shows what 3D printing can do for our scale.  :thumbsup:
Some  :camera: of it in paint should do it even more justice...

An absolute stunning visual 3D CAD picture! Like many comments on here already, I cannot wait to see primer/paint on her bodyshell.

The 3D picture mounted on the 60 chassis gives it a very 'Etheral' Ghost like quality. Picture looks spookily cool for this reason in its own right! Should have released it on October 31st :evil:

I will definately be in the purchase cue for this Class 92 spook machine. Excellent Work!

As others have said - it looks very exciting but is difficult to tell the detail accuracy from those frew snaps and without any paint/primer on it. Presumably it's made to 1:148 scale and not something else (like 1:152 or 1:160).

I looks forward to seeing more.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the support and all the positive messages - if you can see any errors or improvemets your comments will be welcome.

Just to add a quick scan of the 92 side by side with a farish 60. Still tweeks to do but the one shown will be primered so we can all see a shape.

Hi Dave,

Yes, unpainted is whats intended. As we think it unlikely to be mass produced each shell will be a 3dprint so wil be more costly than resin reproductions but as you can see comes loaded with details that would be missing on a resin cast.

Should be available as Shell & Battery box (for want of a better name), hoping to add the pickups (and maybe a cab insert?)

Just needs ....
Farish 60 chassis (need to lower the main pcb) and remove (or modify) the lighting units.
2x Standard farish pantographs (if the above looks OK) - see Bob at brlines
Horns (Hoping Bernard at TPM wil be able to help here)
some representation of the roof wiring.
Glazing material of your choice
Wire for handrail (might be able to supply that)
Paint and decals (John at precision decals can supply)
Think that it?

Hope that helps

And shell is on its way to the spray shop for primer on the weekend.

Regards
RussH

Is the 60 cab not re-usable ?

Or Dapol I assume if running under fake catenary ?

Hi Alan and all,

Yes the dapol ones look usable - will try one (borrowed from an 86) on the body when I see it again. Only odd thing with dapol ones is that they are supplied as an odd pair.

Class 60 cab interior - very good idea and it might be but it seems a shame to take it out. Have to remove the light guides etc. Where as the body maybe reusable as a whole (swaping 2 bodies onto a single chassis to free up a chassis for the 92 project)

As for the 59 - the one Alan has pointed out looks fine to me. Seen it at the bristol show (think thats the same one). 

Thanks
RussH

Hi Russ

If the bodyshell is capable of being cast (ie there aren't too many undercuts/awkward shapes for a mould) then you really should not lose any details in the casting process.

Pantographs - I would definitely go for the Dapol ones.  Might be worth asking Dapol if they will sell them directly to you as just Brecknell Willis spares.

Cheers, Mike
