Hi Pete . Linked to an earlier post while searching for pictures and drawings of this great locomotive .Have since read every page with a smile on my face . I am an industrial sewing and quilting machine engineer . Now self- employed , praise the lord . I have a mad plan to accurately model and to a degree . Animate the Flying Scotsman . I am purely an amateur when it comes to 3D modelling , but i have been dabbling for a good few years now . I can find no shortage of photographic reference material for the finished locomotive . I have purchased both the Haynes books . One on the Scotman and the other on the Tornado . What i really would like . Is a set of accurate drawings . I am a stickler for things being right . Probably a good thing when most of my time is spent re-setting and repairing , pretty intricate timing mechanisms . I have already been in touch with the NRM . About getting a copy of the relevant engineering drawings copied . The other option i am considering , having been engrossed by this very blog . Is wondering whether a set of just as accurate scale drawings would be enough to achieve the end result . Your thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated . I have checked out the drawing set available from AJ Reeves . Are there other sets available to your knowledge which i should also be looking into ? As i said , this may well be viewed as a mad thing to want to do . It is purely for my own pleasure and no timescale applies . Any info or thoughts would be greatly received . Not just from yourself but anyone reading this . All that is left to say is . What a great job you have done so far and i am another person who will be eagerly following your progress .
Cheers for now ,
