Hi Guys,

I've been following the thread for a while now and I'm looking forward to getting a hold of some of the RHTT modules.

Separately I've been working on a 3D Printed FEA-B wagon which with a little work I've been able to turn into an FEA-F which is typically used for the RHTT's.

I've attached a few pictures of the latest prototype to show progress :-





The model is designed to use Parkside Dundas 5.1mm wheels along with 3D Printed bogies and has recesses in the headstocks to accept the Dapol NEM coupling pockets, so that dummy / magnetic knuckle or Rapido couplings can be used.

Cheers, Mark.

Mark,
Great looking wagon when do you expect it to hit the market, after one to make a 3 set RHTT. The modules are very good.

Hi Robert,

It's pretty much ready, I just wanted to check that the coupling heights are correct and that it negotiates curves OK.

Cheers, Mark.

Painted the tanks to give a representation of the RHTT at warley on my club stand C56 Wyre forest MRC. They got some good feedback. They will be on the stand tomorrow too!

Hi Brian

Railtec apparently.

Hopefully Precision Decals will eventually produce the full sheet that we spent a long time getting right. Meantime if anyone out there can print high quality decals (inc the ability to print white) at sensible money then please get in touch....

Hi I have the lads at Railtec for a reduction of the 4mm sheet but this only on Radar - pointed out models now available ! The Railtrack logos are only part of several hundred lables on RHTT trains - mind you how many are readable after a nights work ! - The train looks bare without the panels and from time to time some happy soul has cleaned just the labels giving a very "measles" appearance...
Hoping either Precision or Railtec come through shortly
Robert

Hello all,

I have done artwork for the RHTT modules and wagons as well as the MPV.  I am hoping Precision Labels will print these as they will include everything that's needed on a single sheet.

cheers

Ben A.

Thanks Tank, its such an easy model to put together, the hardest part is getting the Wagon (especially direct from Dapol), but they are available elsewhere. I would urge anyone to have a go at this kit as its a great introduction to using 3D kits, and it looks great when finished - I am just contemplating another one but clean this time ........ (as I reach for my wallet)
