Hi tgv_obsessed

£500 a body? - not sure where you got that from but simply no, not even close. We want this to be affordable by as many as posible.

As soon as we know what its all going to cost I''ll post it on here and where to get them from etc if thats Ok with the moderators.

I think he's confused because the cjm  class 92 has been mentioned.

Hi tgv obsessed,

Yes, the only existing Class 92 at the moment is the CJM model which costs around £500 give or take.  That model was originally produced for the Eurotunnel layout in the early 1990s.

I think that's what people are referring to....

cheers

Thanks Ben, I was a bit confused too about the £500 that was being mentionned in the posts as not familiar with the CJM model.

Keenly watching this, I'd love a 92! Was disappointed to hear Dapol had shelved theirs!

thanks for the clarity on this!

I'm dreaming of colour 3d printing and scanning

or enterprising folk selling the CAD files- with customizable liveries and god knows what else

perhaps changeable to fit different chassis- so those like me who don't mind the small wheels to go round sharp radii can have their cake and eat it

want a Toothpaste ETR 450 (originalish pendo) that can grip a small tomix or kato chassis to get through those peco setrack points?

yippeeeeeee me me me me me!!

3D colour printing is getting there slowly. Some of the Zcorp machines can print colour although not to the quality or on materials good for modelling yet.

Hi Guys

A couple of screen prints of V2.0 with a much revised cab end. Still lots to do but your opinions on the shapes & contours etc either as it stands or compared to v1 would be much appreciated.

Cab looks better. First roof panel behind the cab is wrong though 8) If you look carefully at the prototype you'll see that the roof panels are two thicknesses and the first one is two differing depths with the change along the line of the angle step in the roof

This shows it nice and clearly as the light is right to pick up the shadows. See 2mins in

Metronet Class 66 + Class 92 Europorte 2 hauling a very long freight train

Not entirely sure the door handles don't stick out too far - they are pretty much flush with the body side (I think flush with the 3 disc plaques)

Hi Alan and all following this thread.

Apologies for not getting these to you sooner - on nights again (no fun in this heat).

Phots of what v1.0 looks like in primer - as you can see even with a lot of smoothing there’s still visible patterning. Currently thinking of trying different materials or different printing services to get the finish we want - ie smooth! (or in a material that can be smoothed much more easily - apparently FUD is a bit like kryptonite to sand etc).  Any thoughts ideas or recommendations appreciated!

regards
Russ

Trouble is, you can get the detail in FUD but not necessarily in the others even if they're smoother.
Mind you, I've only used Shapeways so there might be someone else that can do smooth.
Looks good though and the details more visible now its in primer.
Personal motto: You don't have to be mad to be a modeller, but I find it helps!

That's why the suburbans are mixed etch and polished wsf.

I wouldn't worry too much at normal distances. Also IMHO forget polishing FUD WSF or PLA. Better to add material to smooth it.
