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...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Thanks guys. :D I like every picture! The brass wagons look awesome, I cant believe your patience for such small brasswork! :o It depends on the wagon and how much detail has been incorporated into the etch. The two outside frame fish vans above took around 90 minutes each to assemble the bodies. Th...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

WOW, I can't believe that I've neglected this thread since the beginning of the year! Well first off, I finished hand lining the GWR County and sent it to its new owner. https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/76/213-260419162420-76621148.jpeg https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/76/213-260...

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.

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.

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.
