That's not a bad idea... I think a ton of wagons can be done using etches. I think they will be cheaper too...

Re: shapeways print orientation

I'm afraid I lost confidence in Shapeways to do anything about the issue of differring orientation almost three years ago. I believe they were talking about giving a choice over orientation back then....but did nothing! It was certainly about that time when I complained about two identical parts be...

Re: UK outline stock

Well, I finally picked up my parcel and got a first look at the stock! I'm very happy with the 313 and the first print I have of the 158 too! I have once again though fallen into the T gauge trap and made some details too small. Most noticeable is my container wagon designed to hide a power unit. T...

Re: UK Stock?

Hey guys!

It's now 99.99% done...the bogies as you can see are a bit fat. I will have to reduce the width of the frames. That is a 2 min job. Let me know what you'll think.

Cheers.

Re: UK Stock?

Would love to see any American Steam locomotives. I do not have a problem with using a coach for power. I would add a light to the engine so it would look like it was powered when running! The K4 or 4 6 2 Pacific would be great, but why not go for the crazy cool project, the Big Boy. How neat would...

Also, please look at some American locomotives as the market will expand as more of us in the US discover this wonderful scale! Hi JoeMalinchak, I surely will, could you be kind...

Problem with Sketchup?

Hi, I've always had the habit of designing my models in 1:1 scale and after it's done I usually scale it down to the desired scale. However of late I started to feel that SketchUp isn't T-gauge friendly. Almost all models I have worked on when scaled down to 1:450 suddenly have a ton of missing sur...

T gauge - General Queries

Hey, I've just got a few queries about T gauge that I wish to clarify and so thought I'd start a topic for it. Q) What is the diameter of T gauge wheels? Q) Are there any other couplings for T gauge? (I saw something like a OO gauge tension lock on facebook) Q) Are there more options for turnouts? ...
