Following the receipt from Shapeways of a GWR Cattle train that I had drawn up (http://www.rmweb.co....e-train-in-fud/), I have been working on two of the set, a W1 Large Cattle Wagon, and a W2 Medium (Outside Framed) Cattle Wagon.

The parts...

The results of my labours with Google SketchUp have finally arrived from Shapeways, detailed in previous blog entries.

This time I have received a complete GWR Catte Train comprising 2 x Large W1/5 Cattle Wagons, 1 x Medium W2 (Outside Framed) Cattle Wagon, 3 x Small W3 Cattle Wagons (this was a bit of a cock up copying and pasting as there should have...

Following a thoroughly enjoyable day out at the RM Web members day on Saturday - many thanks especially to Julia (Missy) for taking time out to talk to me.

Anyway, I came away inspired and spurred on to get some more modelling done. Luckily, the TV content on Saturday evening wasn't my cup of tea (but was very fortunately wifey's), so out came...

2mmFS - Couplings (of the 3-link variety)

Couplings, 3-Link
In my 2mm scale stock box I now have almost 10 wagons. I had decided at an early stage to make use of the DG couplings to allow hands free shunting (my P4 stock makes use of 3-Link and screw couplings to hold everything together, being much heavier I don't tend to lift everything off the rails (too often) when shunting), however what I intend to do in...

Unfortunately, due to a variety of reasons I have not ordered the previously drawn models from Shapeways yet. One of the reasons for this is that I have decided that I don't need any more of the Outside Framed Vans that I were originally forming part of that order. I have however almost finished 2 of the Vans, attempting to complete them in GWR Red...

Today I received the printed up models of my GWR Outside Framed Van from Shapeways.

I am really pleased with the results (photos below). I had ordered 3 of the little chaps, one of which looks a bit rough on one side (and is in the ultrasonic cleaner as I took the photos of the other 2). Hopefully, it might look better after half an hour or so in...

Following on from the successful drawing of a GWR Outside Framed Goods Van (awaiting production and receipt of printed models from Shapeways), I decided to try to capture another of my favourite wagons in Google SketchUp.

This time I've drawn up a GWR Outside Framed Cattle Wagon (which became daigram W2). A SketchUp screen shot of the wagon can be...

GWR, Van, 3D Printing
Well having completed my 3D artwork for the Van, I uploaded it to Shapeways. Disaster!!

Whether it is Google Sketchup, the export to an STL file, or me (probably the latter :scratchhead:) I don't know. In any event the uploaded file had several problems, it was a solid lump (rather than a nice hollow van), quite a bit of the detail had also...

Having seen some of the great models that can be produced from 3D Printing, I have begun (for the second time) to produce the 3D model for a GWR Outside Framed Goods Van. These early vans were 15'6" long with a total body height of only 6'8". The earliest ones had wooden underframes, and they had a long life some ending up as Sand...

2mm, GWR, Wagon
My 4 plank open has now been painted, the colour I originally bought was just too orangey (Humbrol Satin 132) despite the colour on the tin lid, so a second coat was applied this time adding Humbrol Matt 70 to it in a ratio of about 3 x132 to 1 x 70 to obtain the "warm", "light", "dark" red that GWR wagons are reported to have...

I am going to try to move my 2mm ramblings from my original Trefallion blog (which is my P4 layout) to this new blog, firstly with my entry on a GWR 4 Plank Open wagon :
