N207 - 009 20hp Simplex - no chassis
T_Wright @ECML_Fan Thats excellent news, keep me posted.
T_Wright @ECML_Fan I've made it available in FUD now as I haven't got time to rejig it (exams) however I will be making a finer version later on this year.
T_Wright @ECML_Fan Yep, would that be with finer details or just as it is?
N201 - 009 20hp Simplex - static chassis
T_Wright @Kevin_edwins Extra detail is quite easy to add (see here: however, I shall only add detail which works better with being printed and as you have an easy reference, would make it more accurate (such as cab controls). Does it need a chassis? I would love to make a 40hp version as well, however without the headstart of an 009 version it would take much longer and while I have a basic plan of them, I can't find it at the moment.
T_Wright @Kevin_edwins Ah right, apologies, I misunderstood. On such a large scale the fine details would be able to be printed in a lower quality material, making it cheaper for you, and with slightly less detailing required. The larger panels could then be sanded down if you were unhappy with the finish. I must say I envy you owning a real one, however... I will look at resizing one and improving on the details. Would you like one with a cab like this?
T_Wright @Kevin_edwins Thanks. is this O-16.5? It would be possible. What material/which model are you thinking of? The lack of detail on some of them would be quite obvious at 7mm scale.
T_Wright @Motorail_maniac See here (, is this what you wanted?
T_Wright @Motorail_maniac Thanks for the comment, I will give it a go.

N203 - 009 Simplex - Skip
T_Wright @ECML_Fan Thanks, it'll be interesting to know.
T_Wright @ECML_Fan Thank you very much for finding that it looks almost perfect for motorising
T_Wright @fenchurchtim I have made my own from a printed base but I have been struggling with getting the pick-ups to work which is why I haven't made it available for sale yet.
N202  - 009 20hp Simplex - static chassis
T_Wright @ECML_Fan Thanks, good luck with it.
T_Wright @ECML_Fan It shouldn't be too difficult so long as you have a dremel or similar, I can modify one to have no floor or chassis if that helps.
T_Wright @ECML_Fan The wheelbase is 13.4mm though the wheels cannot rotate, hope that helps.
