I've kept this quiet and just got on with it, well they're ready now.

 

It's no secret I like to model the Railway Series/RWS as well as pre-Grouping locomotives so to that end here is something more freelance to my own interpretation.

May be suitable for non RWS engines too simply by painting them differently.

£34.89 plus postage from me directly for any body shell in 4mm, [email protected]

 

Also I drew up and 3D printed some coal staithes for my N gauge layout. :)

£5 from me directly, Robox Print.

 

As to modelling I have a desk that looks a bombsite as I'm in the middle of building chassis for the Goblins so I'll have some more to show later of the physical variety.

Working on Furness #20 as a new project, will have pics of it soon, in meant time though here's the other I'm working on...

The modelling desk is also rather busy to say the least finishing previous designs, will have some nice pics and running vids to share eventually.

We are a bit further than this Tweet shows, splashers have been made a fart bigger and other things.

 

What ye think?   Any suggestions?

Out of interest, have you printed any of the loco chassis on the Photon?

Yeah a few.  They turn out fine but looking to go into metal once figure how.

I'm doing a composite chassis in 1:32 scale for a Calecdonian 782 class pug with nickel silver plates and resin printed spacers and horn guides so far.  Here are the frames so far

...and a screen shot of the Fusion 360 drawing showing the firebox acting as another frame spacer.

There will be a motion plate and inside motion.

 

I'm also aiming to do something similar in S scale.

 

It's working well so far with the 1:32 chassis and the resin prints are coming out quite accurate.   I'm aiming to have brass axleboxes working directly in the hornguides.  The two spacers p[rinted so far have been printed directly on the printer's plate with no raft and supports - this to get a flat and square top to the parts.  Originally printing on supports gave some warpage and needed a lot of cleaning up.   The pickup method will be split axles with all metal wheels so insulated spacerxs are ideal.   Work is held up at the moment awaiting the delivery of an ABC gearbox and motor.

 

I use a Shuffle,  but it's pretty similar to the Photon so maybe I can butt in on this thread. :-)

Quick heads up, WSF option for this particular product I've binned...

 

 

 

Still 3D printing mine and your things from here on the Photon.  Will get some pics soon of latest CAD progresses.

That 812 looks amazing. It looks exactly like the prototype (apart from the livery).

Thanks, isn't finished yet though, still a lot to do.  It doesn't have a livery yet, the white is just a colour to see it in 3D, can be any colour.

Hi,

 

I was really intrigued to see the 812 emerging as your next project, it opens up a whole host of Caley 0-6-0 options, as post-Jumbos there were a lot of similarities.  They did get some wee detail changes over the years and of course there the issue of the "washin'-hoose" equipment which I suspect will tax your ingenuity.  Good luck with progress, I'm sure you'll be well ahead of the Rails version!

Thanks.  Update stuff...

 

There will be 3 different smokeboxes and the 652 variant as well as the 812 body.

 

Bodies will be released 1st and then tender and chassis' for them.

 

Rivited versions might be done although currently unsure as rivets take a long time so maybe a later option.  Undecided.

 

The 812 body is almost done minus the backhead controls.   For this reason I'm not showing it yet!

Hi Knuckles,

 

Very interested in the 812 but 2mm scale (there is always one!).

 

Would you be interested in providing prints of the back head separately? 

I've a couple of etched kits of earlier Caley Jumbos on the go that it would suit.

 

Thanks

I can re-scale the body shells down to N ir 2FS sure. :)

 

the backgead I'll make separate too, sure.  Although in N it'll be pretty basic.

Thanks Knuckles,

 

Basic is fine, I'm not looking for out of the box perfection (not to say that your work isn't), rather something to build form and save some scratch building time.

The Jumbo faceplate was a wee bit different (even in 2mm) being a very sparse affair, no spoked handwheels, the solid brass wheels operating the ejectors were on the spectacle plate. You'll be hacking off loads of Gavin's lovely detail.

If I do a 2mm re-scale a lot of detail will have to be removed anyway!  :-D

 

Some bits will have to be in 4mm too for Shapeways although from previous experience I think the Photon will handle it.

Very nice indeed, I’ve just came across this, having not had much time to get on here lately, I was thinking of kitbashing a Hornby 700, as I have done to make a nbr j37 but, now I will have to get one of these when they are ready. Very good

Looks good to me.   :)

 

A few have expressed interest in melding a 700 chassis to an 812 body.  Unsure if this is what you are inferring but if so I'd think it'd be do-able.
