After suffering a heart attack in March 2013, I decided I needed a more relaxing hobby, so started modelling N-gauge trains. I also had my own 3d printer that I wanted to print my own models with, but it's not brilliantly reliable. I've had a few people who've seen my designs want me to do things for them so decided to open an account on Shapeways so I can do that, and maybe save for a better quality 3d printer to use at home.
I design for myself in British N-gauge (9mm between the rails and 1/148th scale), but can easily convert my models to OO and HO, which are roughly twice the size, 1.95 times to be precise. I'm more than happy to customise my designs to peoples personal tastes / requirements, time allowing.
