I am always looking for unusual, interesting subjects for 3D printing. Although I am mainly working on British prototypes at the moment(I have so many I want to do), I like a change so wen David Thomas had his article about the little known French double deck steam railmotor I latest French Railways Society magazine, with drawings, I thought it should move from the 2D printed page into the 3D world. There are no known photos of the real unit, so apart from the drawings, which I gather were based on and sourced from old publications, much would be guesswork. I ad to estimate measurements from size of buffer beam. It looks about right.
The design is not that complex, and I have kept it basic, but managed to not only produce a design in my own preferred HO scale but also OO(it would not look out of place on the Wantage Tramway!), TT3(could do it in 1/120 as well),and N gauge, as well as an O gauge version and possibly even a Gauge One version.
I want to get one printed and finished in tie for the April get together in Derby at end of April(plenty of time), but wondering what colour it would be. A quick search on google did not help.
I am always on the look out for new subjects. I do plan to do some more metre gauge railcars, but would like to do some standard gauge ones as well.
