Atlas wagons got some paint this evening. The open ones needs a bit more on the decks and all of course needs some wheels, but that is about it. Really pleased with these ones. I have one more timber version coming up which is not printed yet, but coming

PLA + white glue = LOVE! ..... Just amazing! One would think that a generous layer of olive oil would solve it ... Nop! ...   Took about 40 minutes just to remove it from the mold. Yes, it staid in one piece this time and Yes, it looks very nice painted..

Had problems with getting the prints to stay on the table last week. Tried several solutions. In the end it turned out to be the bed sheet which was way past it´s due date. After I changed it, suddenly all prints get very flat and crisp again .. : )

The mold for the ridge tiles was ready this afternoon. I could have used a bit more olive oil in the mold, but the principal works great! The other mold needs a bit more time to set. When both dried out properly they will be put on the roof of the crane.

Mold got it´s second layer filled in. Beside it is also the mold for the ridge tiles. I reached desired design with the chassis / bogies now! This last version feels final. During the time I also made a few new atlas wagons, meant to use the same chassis

Printed a second body this evening plus made below new drawing for a bogie chassis for this new wagon series. Still not sure which I like the most, will probably keep both versions, 2-axle and bogie variant.

Designed and printed this freelance van a few days ago. At first I planned to make an extended version of the classic atlas chassis for it, but now looking at the pictures I think short atlas bogies would look even better. Will do both so I can see them..

Last night I did print these details to the Galtströms crane. You might wonder why I print so much and not much else.. Simple reason for that, during work days I am rather drained on energy in the evenings, but click start on the printer is not that hard
