  1. "1 Micron" ... ? You sure? 10 Maybe I can believe but 1, I dunno. lol.
  2. I find this all very inspiring. Something I will have to learn defo. So many potential possibilities and ideas to actuate.
  3. Furness Railway 115 Class Baltic 4-6-4T Tank Now released as a 3D printed body with some chassis options. I haven't built one yet although the client who initiated the commission tells me the body and chassis are good and is in the process of doing so so I'd think so. Not like it's my first attempt or anything! I've painted the renders in a later LMS livery for potential effect. Body: https://www.shapeways.com/product/BRMRRVMJL/furness-115-class-baltic-tank-4-6-4 Furness sections with chassis options: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/sparkshotcustomcreationsscc?section=4mm+Furness+%26+Cambrian+Loco'+Bodies&s=0 There are actually two loco bodies uploaded as the client wanted one with a slightly bigger sunroof than the drawings had so I've linked you with the other. To lid the sunroof a scrap bit of anything will do.

  5. My experience with the two materials leads me to conclude FUD etc is dimensionally more accurate and a bit straighter plus parts fit together easier requiring less clearance and offsets in the design process. Less fold lines and being more rigid helps here n there. I'd say FUD etc isn't as smooth as Photon/Mars prints in most cases and is more brittle. Pro's n cons like most things. Both materials can give good results with TLC yet the qualities are different.
  6. I do 3D print the majority of SCC items on my own printers now. Got two Photon's and a Mars 2 currently and once the top shed is renovated (lots of progress made at last) will be buying bigger hardware. please send email to: [email protected] if you're interested in prints, my designs or otherwise. If you mean will I be buying a FUD/FXD/SFDP - Polyjetting Shapeways' style machine, the answer is I'd hope to one day but I'm a LOOOONG way off being able to afford one. Maybe ye could all crowd fund it, doubtful! But yes, it's a goal amongst others.
  7. Ooh! That's rather fetching must say. Defo works. "shpiffin!"
  8. """"Well, it's been WAY too long coming but finally got it done.

  10. Absolutely banging. Really brings them to life convincingly.

  12. Signed petition and posted it on Twitter also, might get some relavant exposure. Highways England: Absolute Cock-Wombles. :-/
  13. I got similar problem. For ages the 4 pin decoders have been out of stock so once they were I brought 2 incase one popped. How does it run? Absolute crap. Stall, start to move, stall, moves a bit stall. Pushes it along by hand, starts to get to speed, stall. Change directon? Stalls 80% the time. Utter tripe. Wheels n track were cleaned pre conversion so it isn't them. I've put it back to standard DC where it actually DOES perform good for a wee 0-4-0. Hornby, what are you playing at? A novelty hard to get 4 pin is bad enough but when it runs this unreliably why even bother, couldn't you have designed things for extra room and a stay alive to be part of the chip? Maybe I and previous poster are just unlucky and others' are working fine, this sort of thing isn't uncommon. Got to find a workaround. Not fun.
  14. Ah, that café : ) Was a nice day that.
