PKP Px48 build from a GLR Models 3D Print Cont:

Evening   Bit of an update on the Px48 build after spending three days in Cambridge on a course I've had the day off and in between things have managed to make some good progress fitting brass bits I've cut out.   Sorry about the photos-they're quick workbench shots taken with my HTC.   Here's a front view showing the roof profile:   px48 12-12-2013 004 by kettering15b, on Flickr   On the loco I've added some thin brass overlays to the top of the cylinder casings and on the lower ha

PKP Px48 build from a GLR Models 3D Print

Evening,   Once more another modelling project that is different to the norm and will spur a small layout.   Before I start I need to thank two people. Firstly, Castle on this forum for making me aware of the PKP Px48 through his thread on a visit to Poland and actually driving one of these locos. Here's the link to his photos and accompanying commentary:   http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/51212-little-didcot/page-22   Secondly for James Hilton on NGRM for making me awar
