Welcome

Welcome to Narrow Gauge Trains, Events and 3D modelling. My current focus is 1:35n18 scale trains running on 12mm gauge track. My prototypes are mostly british and from ww1 trench railways, but some swedish vehicles turn up to in this otherwise swedish landscape.

Here comes the mine wagon to put on top of the atlas chassis. Seems I got around complete circle with this one ..  The print quality had been better than this, but I am ok with it for now. This is a first test print anyway. The axleboxes and the mine

Made this Dalahäst (Dala horse) for my wife. A famous swedish tourist souvenir and also collected by many (female) swedes...  This was a really tricky guy to get printed.. Had several failures before I got to this. Missing legs or terrible undersides ...

Now when the previous mold test worked out OK, I did continue and did these full size roof tiles in 1/35 scale. Second is a mold for the ridge tiles. I am eager to print and test them out - this time cleaned with dish-washing first, but I have family.....

Made this cement mixer for a couple of friends, inspired by the MiniArt version. Uploaded to ShapeWays it will probably be more expensive than the MiniArt version, but on a home printer it is pennies.. Photos when printed..

The solution to the mystery is quite puzzling.. The glue appeared transparent only now, but looking at first two photos below it is proven that it always been so.. (both are transparent, in the new mold and so on the ready-made roof tile sheet) The white.

See above. It was as full to start with as second fill below... Expect PLA is leaking or something .. On last pic I am gluing the front boards to the port side bow of the barge. Look, I am actually building model boats again : ) that was not yesterday!

This was another interesting test!  Learned from my mistake with the paint template I made this first version much smaller. The final one will of course be much bigger with room for a hole building side. The final would take 11 hrs to print, way to long..

Continued with the barge today. Added second side and started on the planking. They are plain coffee stirrers which I was lucky to order through my local food store a few years ago. Nice to have use for them at last!

This model clearly shows that 1/35 scale does not need to be big! See last picture with compare to both Gn15, 009 and 0 scale models. The flywheels touch the ends of the opening in the frame. Easy to carve out 0.5mm in each side, but also easy to re-print
