Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

The last kit I built in 2018, completed around 11pm last night... https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/72/213-311218221818.jpeg Nothing special, just one half of the NGS LMS box van double pack (kit 18), build straight out of the packet. Happy 2019 everyone! Here is to another year of seeing s...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Ok, about as far from the J3 in terms of the time of building as I can get. https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/72/213-301218113514.jpeg The test build of my revised L1 print. I've still got some snagging work to do on this one and a couple of minor things to redesign internally to make life ...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Yes, they should - especially as I'll be struggling to find time to build them for a few weeks yet! :lol: I got a second set of wheels from my parents as well. These were assembled, quartered, coupling rods added and the second J3 was assembled this morning before heading over to the future inlaws f...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

I feel that I've done very well in my 2mm/N gauge haul for the day.

I am very grateful to my long suffering, very understanding and tolerant girlfriend for these wonderful gifts! :D

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Blessings at Christmas Atso. Those locos look lovely. I'm sure you will get a second chance to see the lovely London allocated locos one day... Your models are inspiring. It makes me think how amazing models you would make in a larger scale! Merry Christmas to you as well Mountain! Many thanks for ...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

With Christmas nearing, a couple of new locomotives are being designed/built for my future Hadley Wood layout. https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/72/213-241218121933.jpeg Both locomotives are ex-GNR J3s but hopefully show the absolute minefield that, due to the extensive rebuildings over a l...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Hi Steve, Been a while since I have been here, some great progress you have made with these models. Its amazing to think these are N gauge... quite amazing... Thank you Matt and my apologies for the delay in replying. I've been busy with some commission work recently. Unfortunately, I am not able t...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Things have been progressing on various bits and pieces recently... The C1 has had various features picked out in brass, black and polished steel and will move to the lining stage once dry. Apologies for the quality of the pictures, the sun is not being helpful to my phone camera today! http://www.n...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

I've finished the basic colour scheme for the C1 which will become 4452 as it was one of two Atlantics that deputised for a failed A4 that hauled the Silver Jubilee set into Kings Cross during the late 1930's. I've also found some more photographs of this locomotive and, as it achieved it's Silver J...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

I'd forgotten how small N gauge is. I was reminded yesterday when I saw some GWR 4-6-0's running on a test track with Swansea Model Railway Club as I paid a visit. They looked like the ones you have in a pic. above. I didn't check to see what class of 4-6-0 they were. Didn't want to strain my eyes!...

Re: Station signage

Hi Bruce, Good question! As a complete guess, I would say that Gill Sans would be the most likely font as it seemed to be used for quite a lot of things during the steam era. However, maybe you'd be interested in the Scalescenes downloadable station name pack - apparently you can customise these by ...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Thanks Mountain.

There shouldn't be a problem with platform clearances (when I have an actual layout!) as, while I've had to widen the loco slightly, it's still thinner than many rtr offerings.

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

With some commitments to other modellers progressing sufficiently, I'm temporarily turned my attention to a locomotive that I've long wanted but, due to some serious clearance issues, have never been successful in making. http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/70/213-191018185109.jpeg Above is my...
