Hi and welcome to Kanuck Valley Models.
Ever since I was little I worked with my dad on his railroad layout and he passed on his lifelong hobby and passion for trains and railways. This sparked an interest ever since where I could spend days working on small maquetes and building objects, that grew into a passion for 3D modeling that got me into the VFX industry. Since then my daytime job has turned into a software engineering role within the VFX but the passion for making and designing has never stopped.
More recently I have started making plans for my own layout, something I haven't had the time or space for up until now but I wanted to take a slightly different approach. Having a passion for desiging as well as software development I want to create and print many of the trains, buildings, electronics and software on my layout while paying very close attention to details. This is what has gotten me started on Shapeways and having had great feedback from family and friends and not to forget my dad I though it might be worth selling some of the models I will be making to people who are just as keen on having greatly detailed models on their layouts.
I hope to also start filming some of my design work and how I approach making these models from scratch and will start making those available on Youtube and twitter.
I got a fairly big list of things I will be working through in HO scale but if you think of anything that you can't find and would like a hand with desiging and creating please feel free to contact me.
Thanks for visiting my shop.
