I think you'll be missing a trick if you don't. It's so impressive, are you sure you wouldn't want light flooding out of those AMAZING windows? :mrgreen:

But wow I love your tools pots, what are they made from?


The the 5 tool holders on the right are berrocca tubes which are aluminum and the others are another brand which are plastic tubes.
The rack is made of timber with holes in the right hand end to hold Humbrol paint tins about 30 tins.
Have to take some photo's of my work area.

If you insist I might have a good look at it, it's all of plaster so the light should only come out the windows, oh and through the plastic door :oops:

Hello everyone

The printer has been at it again producing this nice wrought iron gate for the back of the Manor House.
Even put a hole in the ceiling of this bit to put wait for it a LIGHT :idea: :wink:
Thought it might be nice to hi-light that nice gate :!:

The photos show the dust something terrible I just cleaned up around the gate :oops:

If you had a 3D printer you could have these windows also :!: :P

Kind words or jealous?

I have been tempted by 3D printers, but not sure about finishing

Not quite sure what context you are speaking in about the finishing. As I have had a brief look through some of the photo's from the layout that was.
I think I need to be the Jealous one, the photo's of the layout are very inspiring. I have a long way to be able to get it all together as you had.
I can make fantastic buildings, but the rest of it, not one of my strong points. Just need to look and learn more.

If you are game, have a read through my post on 3D printing starting from here. Somebody else said about the same as you so I wrote this.

https://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=46116&start=30#p626819

Basically it's all about the machine and how it is set up, to how good the finish is. There will always be some surfaces that may need a light sand.
I have 2 printers that are set up just for fine detail and when needed I use 180 emery to clean up. I don't use Acetone as you lose the detail.

Due to peer pressure :cry: , I have put some lights into one of my latest builds, also is a couple of pics of some of the old signs on the outside.

Have to say it has come up not to bad, the right hand inside is not quite right the angle is to flat, turn the lights of and you won't see it :)
Just need to add a few people inside and some signs on the barrels, and it is finished.

Unfortunately you have got me started now, and I don't know how to stop. They actually let me out on weekends for good behavior :)

These happy snap cameras aren't to good for clear photo's no control over what happens :!: need a DSLR :idea:
Wonder what mood the wife's in :?:
