Re: More big stuff(3D printing) and some other smaller items

Simon If you upscale these to 1/12 or 7/8 you'll need to login over on the 7/8 lounge. I know I at least will want a couple to go with the SwiftSixteen protected simplex. Mine is not yet complete but is sitting on the desk in front of me. Those Pichot wagons will look mighty fine trailing the Tin Tu...

That is one good looking engine on that locomotive. Shame to cover it with a bonnet. Welcome to the asylum.

I have a memory like that with my Grandpa and a watermelon patch, dating from about 1952 when I was 6. Thanks for reminding me. Great looking building.

Welcome back to the one true hobby :shock:
I'm just to the south here in Olathe, KS. Between here and the SE Lounge, one of these days we'll have enough guys for a meeting at IHOP. Instead of in a phone booth. :oops:

Glad you're here. Good looking work.

I've stolen the first painted picture to use as desk top art. I was right, for a change, it is a thing of beauty.

Continuous running?
If not, you could make a wonderful Inglenook with a long curve throughout. Use the crane to lift stuff from the Inglenook sidings up to broad guage cars on level with the upper edge of the side boards.
My 2 cents.

Andi This after 34 years as an electrician, if the wire is heavy enough to light up a light bulb then it's heavy enough to run a model locomotive. There are all kinds of charts and tables to identify the 'right' wire, all they ever do is confuse people. If there is room to run the wires physically i...

This is going to require some study. Most of what we do in modelling is illusion, making paper look like metal, making plastic look like wood, etc.

Yep, this is going to require some serious study.

Thanks.

Let me suggest painting the switch orange, put a sign next to "caution high voltage" and a guy with tool belt and a roll of wire and an illegible schematic. Once upon a time I was that guy.
Don't hide it use it. :lol:

OK. Looking at your signature, can we assume this is built from card?
If so, we'll need a sbs, pleeeze, 'cause more card techniques are always welcome.
