Happy Christmas

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, with the warmer months here most of my time has been taken up with outside jobs and not much time for trains. I'm expecting to get another Shapeways order this week. I'm hoping i've solved the bending promblem i've had with the signal mast. There some other goodies in there as well which i will share when they have arrivied. 

Etching, its taken awhile but i think i have found a small suitable pump for the spray tank.  Most of the pumps i've seen for acid have been way to big for what i need. I plan to build the tank in Jan and start etching and than finaly get to lay some rails on those sleepers i laid 2 years ago. Its taken way to long, but thats life. Once ive got the set up right hand laying the track will go quickly.

Well thats it for now, will post some pics of the 3d printed parts when they arrive. I hope everyone has a great Christmas and a Happy new year.


  1. Glad to see a fellow Bendigonian dabbling in 3D printing to pursue their hobby interests. I use shapeways to design and build armoured trains in n-scale. Currently finishing off a WWII product line with the US civil war starting in Feb. see more at www.trainsofwar.com
