3D printing class 25 parts .... Also class 20,37, 2mm and 7mm wagons and 1/32 bogies


Recommended Posts

Very interesting document about the STS Polybulk, I think the next one I do will be a weathered pink one.

 

I did re-scale some of the 25 parts to HO for another member on here, I'll have to look for the file but no time scale as not had much modelling time recently and have about 50 other projects on the go.

 

A slightly different update this time I've been adding some 3D parts to a 7mm Skytrex bodyshell.

 

Starting off with the 7mm resin Skytrex 31 bodyshell, original layout with molded discs.

Bodyshell with lights, discs and roof vent removed/ drilled out.

3D Form 2 resin lights fitted and roof dome re profiled with filler.

3D Form 2 resin roof grill, washer jet covers and lamp irons fitted.  Wire handrails added and replacement engine exhausts fitted to replace the original class 30 versions.

Archer resin rivet details added after giving the shell a coat of white primer.

Humbrol acrylic warning yellow applied.

Current stage of the work, Life Color acrylic Railfreight grey and Revell tar black applied.  Waiting for a printed bufferbeam and bogie to arrive from Shapeways.

Thanks, no hurry, as and when will be perfectly fine.

 

Cheers!

Hello Simon, just curious do you do the Gloucester Fast Freight bogies in 4mm scale? If you do what price are they?

 

Hi,

 

I did draw a bogie for the Lima UKF wagon,  I got a test print from Shapeways, the cost would be about £14 for a pair.

A little wagon update, a couple of renders of some wagons that I have worked on/modified recently, a OBA wagon, a PNA Plasmor wagon and a POA Blackadder. 

 

7mm OBA wagon render drawn to be printed in Shapeways versatile plastic with PLA printed wagon deck.

7mm PNA Plasmor wagon render drawn to be printed in Shapeways versatile plastic with PLA printed brick load and and ends with separate Shapeways PA12 doors to be fitted with wire mesh.

7mm POA Blackadder render designed to be printed on my PLA printer in 4 parts with Shapeways PA12 details and BSC suspension.

Been a while since the last update.

 

As well as renders shown previously I've done some more similar wagons, just a pity BR didnt have a standard air braked wagon chassis as although similar they are all different.  After doing the PNA I modified the OBA to represent the OBA's modified by BR for the Plasmoor traffic with higher ends.

After doing the OBA next up was the OCA and SPA, all of these were designed with an open deck to reduce the cost, I printed decks in PLA for these along with the underfloor air brake valves and tanks.

The next wagon was the Procor PVA curtain side wagon, this was designed to use the same lorry trailer sides but as this is longer than the Campbell's version it requires 2 trailers to make the sides.

After working on this I made a couple of changes to the previously drawn Railiner wagon, by removing the brakes and opening out the sides reduces the price as Shapeways calculate the price on material volume and machine space.  This wagon has shorter curtain sides than the Campbell's wagon.

Made some progress with the PNA model and added the wire mesh to the sides and printed the load in PLA and ends.

Also printed a deck for the OBA and primed it.

Another wagon with some progress is the POA Blackadder which I did a test print in PLA for all the parts which came out OK and I've now ordered some detail parts from Shapeways in PA12.

One new wagon design that's a bit different to the recent air braked wagons is a Mermaid ballast wagon.   The chassis was printed in  Shapeways versatile plastic and the body test printed in PLA, I may potentially get the body cast in resin as I'm after several of these. Normally I try to avoid unseen chassis details but the nature of the mermaid requires more detail than normal, the buffers are Accurascale buffers for their HUO hoppers and available as spare from them.
