THIS KIT IS ONE OF THREE. THIS IS AN INSIDE SECTION. READ HERE FOR DETAILS AND PLEASE WATCH THE LINKED VIDEO BELOW.
This is a Knapford Roof kit based on the station seen in the Thomas & Friends TV series, which comes in a few pieces on a sprue for easy assembly and painting. This kit is one of three different kits. One is an end piece (showing what you see at the front of the station roof) and the other two are internal kits, but slightly different from one another. For a quick video explaining which kits you would need to buy and their approximate dimensions regarding how they fit over tracks, please watch this video: https://youtu.be/ZG63f-gA-QU
The basic idea is that one of these kits will fit over 1 standard length of Hornby track (or similar brands), two tracks wide and with space either side for the platform, just like the Hornby Station Overall Roof. It is as close to the roof seen in the TV series as possible. Please consult the photos for a better idea. The approximate length of one complete kit is 16.5cm and the width is about 19.75cm.
Please note the images of the kit you see here and on youtube are made by my own 3D printer in a hurry, so they're very rough and approximate. If you buy one of these kits, yours will be perfectly molded, unlike mine, because Shapeways' printers are a lot better than my home printer.
The legs for the roof are sold seperately and can be found on my store. There are two types, the front pole type which is square-ish, and the inside type which is round. These are also modelled off how they look in the TV series.
If you’re unsure of which kit to buy, please either watch the video linked above, or leave a comment through my social media (Twitter: @elsbridgep, Instagram: @elsbridgeproductions, YouTube: Elsbridge Productions) or here on my Shapeways store.
I’ve released these models in Sandstone primarily (as well as plastic if the sandstone proves ineffective or if you prefer the plastic) because they are cheaper that way, and according to shapeways guidelines they should do nicely so long as you don’t drop or rough-handle them. I’ve also got each individual piece for sale on my Store if you need a specific part.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me with the details above! Dry rails, smooth running and happy shopping!
