Hi Guys,

Sorry its been a bit quiet recently. Currently waiting for v2.0 in WSF from shapeways to see what the detail and finish is like compared to FUD . Were possibly being a bit picky but if its worth doing its worth doing well. Meanwhile still looking at other 3Dprinting services for something detailed, not to fragile, reasonably priced and that can actually be sanded down smooth. Something in the pipeline just waiting to see what WSF turns out like first - hopefully not long to wait now.

Regards
Russ

Hi Guys
V2.0 finally arrived today from a different printer, WSF version is still delayed at shapeways.
This is the final version - more or less - just getting the printing right. This one is sandable for a nice smooth finish (looks smoother than FUD already)

I don't know the Class 92 inside and out, but that looks superb!  Very impressive work.

Looks fantastic and the surface is a lot, lot better than the FUD was.  Nice work. :thumbsup:

Hi Guys,

This print ones from Sabre media copy at 16 micron and the firm is UK based too - lots more expensive but I think this may actually be worth it! Still waiting for WSF from shapeways and a 4th option due at some point.

Thanks to you all for your interest!

Regards
Russ

Hi Guys
Any worthwhile minor tweeks you can think of?

The outer elements of the bodyside grilles are vertical, not horizontal (the horizontals are set back behind the verticals and not that obvious), see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bonedome/6821603965/#sizes/o/in/photostream/
The cabs taper form the doors forward to the ends, like a cl.60 (not too surprising, given the builders!), see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/beerdave1745/5832411883/#sizes/l/in/photostream/
The print is a lot better than the usual Shapeways FUD. Interesting...

That looks superb! Would definitely have one of those! Shame my pathetic attempts at painting it would no doubt ruin it totally!

We really need to see some primer on it (and larger pictures!) - there still looks to be a fair amount of lines from the printing.

Cheers, Mike

Hi Guys,

Thanks all for your kind comments!

Quick update - Shapeways WSF&P isnít happening as the shell broke in polishing stage - fair doos to them for trying a couple more times before giving up! Nice guys!

Moving on...Roof side panels adj to the cab are getting a tweak (thanks Alan@etched), side louvers are getting a change to mesh if possible (thanks Bernard) and buffer beam is moving back under a bit. Once done we'll try the next 3Dprinters...(still looking for the best deal quality vs cost)

Mike - bigger pictures? - it already looks O gauge...PM me your email and I'll mail you some originals for you to drool over.

Please bear with us while we get this fully sorted - will keep in touch!

Regards
Russ

Mike, Have you clicked on the smaller pictures, as it enlarges them.

I hit this with the corridors on the LNER suburban composite. It seems that you need to make things like window pillars a lot thicker to survive the polisher (1.5mmx1.5mm was their recommendation). I've as a result had to change the plan slightly and use cut vinyl on clear plastic for the corridor divider on that and the narrow compartment dividers on the test Great Central coach.

3D print is certainly an area where there is much to discover 8)
