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...

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...

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

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...

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.
