Re: 3D Printing: Coach tops, LCDR / SECR

This new process of being able to print model parts with a copying machine brings a hole new meaning scratch building. More like kit buiding it sounds to me......John Well its a bit more than copying, a lot of CAD work, but more a lot of research which I enjoy, but in a way it is scratch building b...

Re: 3D Printing: Coach tops, LCDR / SECR

IWR Oldbury carriages. If you think back to a few years ago, a program called railway restorations where a railway undertook a restoration of a carriage. My most recent project has focused on the Isle of Wight's Oldbury carriage. No kits available so turning to the 3D printers again. Thanks to the h...

Re: BMR Workbench.

Thanks, yes there is a lot of work, not much of it can be seen, took a lot of research and there were some large changes.

Re: BMR Workbench.

Another sort of small project... Hornby's new terrier, nice, but none in the condition that I would like... so taking an A1 Stepney, to convert it in to A1X Preserved condition... could it be done.... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48527322672_741f5ecc62_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/6553...

Re: Horsted Keynes - Bluebell Railway Layout.

As the Bluebell had their Branch Line event back in March... with W24 Calbourne from my local railway I thought I might as well go, and because I have most of the locomotives now... I could run a 4mm version... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47552745382_50644f8141_c.jpg https://live.staticflick...

Re: BMR Workbench.

Haven't been on for a while, as to be fair I keep forgetting about this topic, and forum especially when I don't receive notifications ect... So 5 months ago, the carriages seen on the last page were completed. LBSCR Directors saloon, lined out in gold taking 15 hours, with furniture fitted, and gla...

Re: BMR Workbench.

Bulleid 4-8-2 improvements... Having built this model on this forum and for a competition some time ago, I thought I would share that it wasn't just built for the competition but also occasionally runs... I had drawn up a number of improvements when the time came... Firstly early 2018, the chassis ...

Re: BMR Workbench.

Thanks Gents, GWR_Fan, yes I know what your getting at, its very blocky and a poor attempt at streamlining or should that be air smoothed either way its odd and slightly interesting, it certainly goes well... and was tested on some quite steep inclines, and it did very well, must of been the extra w...

Re: The Great Model Railway Challenge

Emettman, I agree, as I was nearly involved in the show... but declined as I thought it would be a bad idea for me personally, as 3 days is just not enough to build anything decent... I suspect the Missenden lot knew that... I asked for some rules and a timescale how long to build and what the show ...
