Re: 3D printed King's Cross Station circa 1990-2010

Brilliant CAD work. I'm humbled that my efforts are, in part, the inspiration for this huge project and I look forward to seeing it progress.

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Hi Ross, That's an impressive bit of CAD work, nicely done! Paul's King's Cross doesn't actually include the good yard; that was on the other side of Gas Works Tunnel and was massive. However, he does represent the transfer goods trains that ran via the widen lines to the Southern region. Copenhagen...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Thank you for the kind words guys. Ross, I wouldn't call this hyper detailing myself as there is a lot of slight of hand in these models too. However, maybe I've been hanging around a few very gifted 2mm modellers for far too long now! :lol: King's Cross would make a great model and I did consider i...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Simply stunning work, and I keep having to check, this is N gauge yes!? The finish and detail of the 3D printing is one thing, but the level of decoration you've achieved is quite another. :o Thank you! :oops: Yes, it is N gauge. The 'teak' has been really enjoyable to recreate using oil paints. Th...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Some more work has been undertaken. The Howlden lavatory third has been largely completed, with just the footboards and gas tanks to fabricate and fit. https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/88/213-130320190833-888641365.jpeg https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/88/213-130320190832-8886415...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

I joined the forum because of this thread and the amazing work you've done there. Really jaw dropping work there - the designing, the 3D printing and especially the hand painting. Your last post was way back on my birthday, so I'm really curious if you have any updates? Thanks, Ross. Hi Ross, Many ...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

I do think this is the best 3D printing I've come across, you can't see any print lines at all - and then I remember it's N gauge to boot! Thank you, it's been a steep learning curve and there are still some things that aren't great but it is getting there. I've spent a lot of time designing up a c...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

A couple of days work as seen the start of the etched chassis concept. Nothing ground breaking, 2mm Association split frame system but narrowed for N gauge track and a direct worm and wheel from the motor. https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/81/213-130919201130-813552223.jpeg https://www.ngau...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

I found a photograph of 4557 near Hadley Wood in 1935 and so decided that this will be the identity of N1. https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/81/213-300819145354-810102326.jpeg https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/81/213-300819145353-810101283.jpeg She's fitted with an older boiler wit...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Well as usual, I've gotten myself sidetracked and have been playing around with this since Monday. https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/80/213-290819185109-809302235.jpeg https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/80/213-290819185109-809302019.jpeg It is an Ivatt N1 tank engine, but is still i...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Some more lengths of straight track have been soldered together for Hadley Wood's fiddle yard and most have now been laid. I'm now reaching the end of the second board! https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/80/213-310719170110-80072131.jpeg The five Gresley coaches and three wagons are already ...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Simply stunning work Atso. You must have the patience of a saint. There's not enough swear words in the English language for me to take up N gauge modelling. Thanks End2End. I really don't have much patience, just the experience learnt the hard way that rushing (or corner cutting) is seldom quicker...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Well I got the Prestwin completed at the beginning of last week, despite being in and out of the doctors/hospital. I just need to build the second one so that they can progress to the painting stage! https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/79/213-120719180918.jpeg As the tanks are a (very nice) r...
