Dutch 3d printed trains n stuff

Recommended Posts

This week I'm building a Stalder FLIRT 3.

Around Europe more and more of these FLIRT 3 trains are popping up (Poland, Germany, Netherlands), so i thought it would be a good time to start making a 3D model:

Still a work in progress, but it's actually going faster than i expected.

That FLIRT looks enticing. When you have finished it would you like to try this SNCF driving trailer used extensively in France and into Switzerland.:-)

I just love the designing aspect, painting is not a skill i have ;)

 

... yet.  Why not give it a go?  You can always remove the paint if you're not happy with the result.  A lovely model like that deserves better than nakedness :P

Might be fun to share it here as well.

 

On August 10th I started working on a small project in 1:87 , the dutch Wadloper both the old and revised version.

I worked on it for like 30min a day during the lunch breaks at work.

 

5 work lunches later I finished it.

Here a picture of every lunch day.

Broke the mirror while sanding, so the new version has the mirrors printed separately (which can then be glued on the model)

Isn't there one of those, or something similar, in the Nuremberg/Nürnberg DB museum?

Just to show that it doesn't always have to be trains:

Yesterday I spent 3 hours creating this beautiful old tram

I am totally amazed, as someone who  can not begin to "get" CAD, that you can turn these out so quickly.

 

Do you take commissions?

Been a long time posting here.

 

Currently working on my own layout (finally after so many years).

It's the smallest scale out there: 1:450

 

 

Right now the base layout is ready (well the track is on the base)

And separately I'm doing some tests like shown above with the printed objects as well as doing tests with ballast:

Not sure if there is any interest in my 1:450 stuff, but I'll keep sharing.

 

Here is the 1:450 dutch VIRM with working motor!

........The painted trains in WSF have this smooth surface due to car primer sprayed on the model, note that this will remove your details as it's quite thick.

Though for these models there wasn't a lot of detail anyway :-)........

Mitchell,

I am so glad you made your post to this topic last week as it lead me to read the topic from the start.  I have had a 2 car L&Y Bury electric set for 2 years and have been pondering how to remove the granulated sugar appearance.  I bought some XTC-3D resin which is designed for the purpose but it looked a bit extreme and was a one hit try, for good or bad.

 

It looks like the Halfords primer I used is not quite as thick as the one you have used as I still have some of the texture of the WSF showing through after several light coats.  This seems to be a very controllable way of removing the printing texture whilst retaining the details in the print, so thank you very much indeed.

You're welcome! It pretty much boils down to: Primer - Sand down - Primer - Sand down etc etc.

Repaiting this till you are satisfied with the result.

 

Alternatively some people have used super glue (use gloves!) to rub the glue into the material, this will seal and strengthen the material.

After this you can easily sand down the model to a smooth surface.

But again, details will go missing.

 

My recommendation of the day, have a look at this topic.

I know it's in dutch, but just have a look at the pictures of the first 2 pages:

https://forum.beneluxspoor.net/index.php?topic=87415.0

 

This person goes into detail how he is building a WSF (Versatile Plastic) dutch SLT train ;)

From sanding to painting.
