  1. Scott Thank you for you feedback and I’m glad your finding the content useful. yeah I’m not sure I will do complete lessons on how to draw a complete wagon. I had someone message me about how to draw a specific shape on a wagon he was drawing yesterday. It would take me only take me a couple of minuits to create a short vid to have shown the answer and lots of people would find it useful. cheers Carl
  2. Hi, I would say at the moment I’m aiming at complete beginners, but that’s not to say that others with some experience would gain any knowledge from the lessons. Thanks for the feedback on the Sound. At the moment I’m using a mike on my headset, if the channel takes off and i get the subscriber support I will look at buying a decent mike. Cheers Carl
  3. Hi Alan, Thanks for the feedback. At the moment I’m just working through some basic models to show how to use some of the tools within the fusion 360 software, while still showing how to draw some items that people may find of use. The plan is to the go on and show how to draw more complex items including rolling stock and also have a section where people can ask how they could draw specific items. Cheers Carl
  4. Hi all, I have recently started a YouTube channel called 3D drawing for your model railway. With the aim to teach beginners how to use Fusion 360 to be able to draw things for their layout. if you are interested in expanding you modelling into 3D printing please take a look. https://youtube.com/channel/UCO6U0E0fVTEm9RUQMRtKVKQ I would also be really interested in anyone’s feedback Thanks Carl
  5. Hi all, From looking at photos available online I would say that 92017’s roof should be the same blue that was used when the 92’s were originally painted in RFD.. Carl
  6. Paul, Those drawing/pictures are perfect. But looking through all of the sample pages on the website I don’t see any dimensions. Am I missing them? i don’t have anything particular in mind, but I do have the ability to draw and 3D print most things. If you look in my post footers you will see I have a Layout called Loch Lorn. I’m thinking about turning it into a RhB layout but before I make that step I would like to be able to actually draw some of the stock so that I don’t have to rely on Kato or the over priced Shapeways. To give you an idea why I sa
  7. Paul, Thanks for that information. Those books do look very expensive. The other option I could take to draw them in CAD is using photos that are taken roughly 90 degrees to them. But then i need to know the one of the dimensions. I.e length, width or height the software can then scale that pic to the correct size. I did find some photos end on the site you suggested above. Any suggestions for the dimenstions would be helpful. Cheers Carl
  8. Hi all, Can anyone point me in the direction of any stock diagrams please? I have a 3D printer and would like to see if I can draw up some items to print at home. At this point I’m happy to have a go at anything (coaches, wagons or containers) Cheers Carl
  9. Hi all, A little update on how the layout is coming along. I have wired all dsubs to the tracks and created all the looms to go to the control panels. At the moment moment I am waiting for a mate to draw up the control panels for me. While he he is doing that I am making a start on other things. first on the list is to redo the C&W building as the layout is being turned and the back of the building which would have been up against the rear back scene is now at the front of the layout so I actually have to put in all the windows that I lazil

  11. Hither Green is all packed in the car ready for tomorrow. Carl
  12. Hi, im thinking about joining in on this. Can I ask what is available building wise for this scale, or is it all needing scratchbuilding? I assume 1:160 would look a bit odd. carl
  13. Hi all, its been a little while since I posted an update on how this project is progressing. All the Dsubs for the boards are wired to the track. This works out at about 500 connections. Today i have made 3 of the 15 looms to run from the boards to the control panels. plans are to have trains running by the by the end of the Summer, then have a nice long running session to make sure everything runs well before progressing the scenery. Cheers Carl
  14. Hi, Heres a photo of Hither Green, Thanks for the invite. cheers Carl
  15. Spent the last few hours working on a couple of N gauge Society kits. The first and most simple is a Warflat. The wagon I’m modelling was transferred to the Power Supply department at Horsham. I assume it was used as a brake force runner as I am unaware of any photos with it being loaded. The second kit is a Weltrol MC. I wanted a model of a Weltrol MV which has a deck 5’ shorter, so once the wagon was constructed I set to with a razor saw and have chopped out a section approx 10mm. For extra support I have glued a section of plasticard to the bottom of
