Hi all,

Please find attached some photos of my latest project, a Polish narrow gauge steam locomotive kit of the 'PX48' engine. I've been working on this one since April, so it's been a fair bit of work...! IT's looking good now, and I'm really pleased with the look of the White Strong and Flexible (polished) material, it really looks good.

I'm continuing to develop the model, and there's a few details I need to revise, I'll update this page when I'm happy with the design and ready to release the kit. Further details are available on my website as well:

Greetings from Poland Wink Great stuff Smile. I'm starting to make some Polish narrow gauge models in TTe scale (1:120). Now I'm wainting for my first printed 1Aw passenger car.

Hi Kaczor,

Interested in those carriages, if you can do them in HOe as well, I'll be interested!

Regards

Richard,

Maybe in the future Wink I'm just started in Shapeways. Designing for printing is different than "normal" 3D modeling. Also designing in TT scale is different than H0 Wink 1Aw cars will fit very well to your Px48. It was common combination in 60s and 70s Winkindex.php?t=getfile&id=13112&private=0

PS. I will be VERY interested in Px48 in TT scale Very Happy

Hi Kaczew,

I'm using google sketchup to design my models; so long as there's enough thickness in the walls; you can scale the model down from HO to TT quite straightforwardly, I'll do this with the PX48 if you're interested! If you can rescale the 1aw to HO, I'll definately have a couple!

Have you seen my work on the MBxD2 which is underway at present?

Regards

Richard.

Sounds like good deal Wink I'm using Sketchup also. However after rescaling, model need some work (in H0 you could have more details and thickness of walls need to be changed to 0,7 mm for WSF material)

PS. Your MBxd2 looks great! Especially when painted. Do you planning to make additional cars also? (Bxhpi or A208P) http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/A208P - very similar but without engine etc.

Regards

Michal

Hi Michal,

Yes indeed. Smile If you can do the 1aw in HO, let me know...!

Yes, I do plan to do the trailer car as well, but I want to get the design right for the railcar first before moving onto the next model; it should be a fast process, but does take time given all the other time commitments that mean modelling time is quite limited, oh well!

Regards

Richard

Hi all,

Some photos of progress detailing up this engine, which will be PX48-1902.... I reckon it's looking prettty good, plenty more to do though, can't have too few pipes on these fantastic engines!
