  1. I have spend hours drawing and printing various items over the last few weeks and plenty more to get done. An example are these Sulzer pistons and frame, in both 4mm and 7mm scales. The pistons are printed individually, inclined on the build plate and the frames are similarly printed. inclined in one plane and then rolled a little in the perpendicular plane, with plenty of supports!
  2. Sadly, I really can't see there being much chance of exhibitions until the autumn, as booking / advertising costs etc for anything sooner would / could still be a financial risk as the 'road-map' dates are only earliest dates and not set in stone. Still so much depends upon figures of infections / hospital figures, as well as vaccinations running according to plan. Even then how many exhibitors / visitors will be prepared to attend an exhibition?
  3. Hi I can't remember off hand which settings I use, but around 80sec bottom layers is about right, then 8 to 10 secs on layers, 45 lift speed and 10 lift height. I would need to double check what settings I have used. I use Elegoo ABS like grey resin, although have used Anycubic clear and needed to alter the settings to suit. I have two machines, but oddly enough, even using the same files, one machine is slower than the other. Both however, give good results.
  4. Excellent work there D! Well worth hand-building track - such a huge difference.
  5. Another project that I have been working on, in both 4mm and 7mm - Sulzer pistons on a frame. These will end up on a couple of my dioramas.
  6. A superb set of photos. I've only scanned through as missed this thread and need more time to study, so will revisit. I was not able to travel extensively on the rail network in the 80's as our local train service was pretty limited, with an hours journey before getting anywhere interesting. It's a real shame that now we have easy and good quality means of taking photographs (digital SLRs etc) with almost unlimited storage, there is little of interest to photograph!
  7. May I also echo Rob's comments. A great deal of care and attention on the packaging is always very welcome and considerably better than many other suppliers. I order the latest MRJ from Simon, adding a few back issues onto the order. Reading through these keeps me in reading material until the next issue of MRJ.
  8. Returning to the track maintenance wagons for the moment, currently working on the lifting beam used with a pair of Donelli - part 3D CAD model shown (not all of the lifting eyes are shown, but printed on the part itself). I need to get a couple together. Next being worked on are the cranes as used on the Salmons and Sturgeons.
  9. Between working on various 3D CAD / 3D resin printing projects, I have been assembling an Intentio plate layers hut, which will be fitted to a diorama when finished. I still need to finish the chimney breast and roof, along with more weathering on the sleepers.
  10. Excellent work! Very impressive. Not sure how I had missed this one, having checked in to Garnswllt several times. Like the 3D printed buildings. Which make / type resin did you use please. I've been using Elegoo ABS like resin in my printer, but quite long prints even for small items and need resin with a faster cure time. Thanks
  11. Hi G Thanks. 3D printing has opened up a whole host of possibilities! I have had a filament printer for well over a year now, but added the resin printer recently, which allows much finer details to be printed. The handrails on the operator cage on the side of the Donelli is only 0.5mm wide! Takes quite a few hours work on the 3D CAD to get the drawings done though, plus the printing time. The main body of these Donelli takes 5 hours to print!
  12. I wasn't familiar with them until a friend asked me if I could make some for him. Then a bit of research following. Not many photos around.
  13. Thanks Rob, yes I am selling these. I will drop you a pm
  14. Hi Andy Many thanks. They operated in pairs to lift rails or whole track sections. A temporary rail was laid alongside the existing track, on which these two ran on these rails. Link to YouTube video showing a pair in operation. Not sure if this is typical, but gives a good indication!
