Inglenook 3 Wyes - 2019
54mm (1:32) scale on H0 tracks, making about 20in gauge. Reached a new (combined) fork beside cannons and wagons, still 18in gauge prototypes but this time on H0 16.5mm gauge. This is the Inglenook / diorama I intend to test and display my models on, which will be of the usual RAR and industrial type.
I3Y - Peckett 0-6-0 chassis
Sep 09, 2019 : A peckett 0-6-0 chassis arrived from Mark Clark at LocosNStuff.com today!! I ordered this chassis for mostly freelance projects, but maybe I will do a Peckett of it to, who knows .. It runs like a dream only needs a lick of paint. Will make my own bo...
I3Y - Cut some foam
Sep 25, 2019 : Had some progress this evening with cutting foam to my new inglenook layout. As you maybe see the plan has evolved a bit. Now it contains 3 Y-switches and the water is more of a waterfront then quay and a small creek is added on the right side.
I3Y - First population
Sep 26, 2019 : Needed some population in 11mm (1:27.7) scale so I printed these three guys from Thingiverse, Alex, Alessio and "Man in Apron". Quite good again. The gunner is a gift from my friend Dan this evening and is a resin print on a Zortrax printer.

I3Y - Baby steps
Oct 06, 2019 : Baby steps today, but in the right direction - forward! Added a bit more grass in the background, painted all sleepers light-gray and begun to paint the rails rusty. The layout starts to blend in with the background now, which is one of the main purposes,
I3Y - Tracks and bridges
Oct 07, 2019 : Last evening I was about to continue painting the rails rust brown when I realized I missed something..., the sleepers are way to small for 1:32 scale ... I could insert wooden coffee stirrers in-between each second PECO sleeper, but why not print

I3Y - Natural Sand & Tea ..
Oct 13, 2019 : My wife and I had a nice walk to the lake today. Not a wet drop from the sky spite weather reports.. On the way home I did pick up some sand to filter, see last pic. While home I found a box with old tea which also will come handy making scenery for.....
I3Y - Alan Keef K12 part 2
Oct 14, 2019 : My Keef loco was finished printing this morning. Unfortunately I am becoming increasingly hesitant to continue using my Dremel for scale models. It is still perfect for gadgets and for example my sleepers (which require PLA which is a bit more flexible...
I3Y - Alan Keef K12 part 3
Oct 18, 2019 : As I wrote in my last post I wanted to get one final good print of this Alan Keef loco made on the Dremel. Below is second attempt. Before first I did clear the nozzle as good as I could. Before this, I did change to a complete new nozzle, never used b...
I3Y - Vacuum cleaner nozzle
Oct 19, 2019 : Shame on those who give up, so I did draw up this vacuum cleaner nozzle yesterday evening. It was finished printing this morning. For some reason the base of this is smooth as a babies bum .. Go figure.
