THIS MODEL IS SPECIFICALLY SUITED FOR Bachmann Thomas, Percy & James. OTHER SIZES AVALIABLE. PLEASE READ THIS FOR THE INFO YOU MAY NEED.
This model is of a Snowplough for OO / HO Engines, based off of those seen on the T&F Show. This model specifically was made to be a replica of the ploughs seen in Seasons 13 - Present, used by the engines Thomas, Edward, Percy, Duck, Oliver & others.
The photos seen here are of test prints done my my own cheap 3D printer, meaning they are not as precise or nice-looking as the ones Shapeways will print. Don’t worry about the imperfections you see in the photos, they will not be present on your model.
This model is designed to be slotted onto the buffers of your engine using the included ‘bufferbeam slotter’. In order to use this snowplough, you will need to measure the height of the bufferbeam of your model, and glue the bufferbeam slotter onto the plough at the same height, so that the plough sits high enough that is doesn’t hit the rails, yet low enough that it can clear them of ‘snow’. Also, if the supporting bits of the bufferbeam slotter which rest against the bufferbeam of your engine are too long or short, I suggest you either sand them down, or add some hot glue to the end to lengthen them. If this problem does come up, please contact me to let me know. All of this really isn’t difficult to do, and if you have any questions feel free to ask me to help you out by contacting me either through Shapeways, my email (email@example.com), my twitter (@ElsbridgeP), my Instagram (@elsbridgeproductions), or my YouTube (Elsbridge Productions).
I also have four other kinds of snowploughs seen in the show designed to suit most engines, found on my Shapeways store. You need only look at the description to see what engines that specific plough will fit on. If the plough listing you are looking at doesn’t say it fits your model, then look for another size until you find one that says it fits your model. Not every plough has a size that fits every model, as I only sized them to fit the engines who wore them in the show.
If all this is too complicated for you, contact me (details above) and I will help you out!
