The next problem will be to figure out how to print it ..... :shock: :?
I think I'd look at sort of printing it smooth, as Simon suggested, but deepen the centre section so that it sits down inside the sidewalls by a few mm to give them some support/strengthening.

Re: Curved corrugated roof

I've never done it ( never needed to) but here are a couple of Youtube video's of how to do it in Sketchup, that I filed away, just in case.

Re: Creality 3D® Ender-3 V2 Upgraded 3D Printer Kit

Creality do loads of variations on their machines, as you probably know. I was in a not disimilar situation to you a few months ago when I neede to replace my defunct QidiTech1, and in the end I went for a Creality CR20 Pro, simply because of its physical dimensions - I needed it to fit in a particu...

Re: Summertime, and your printer's seem idle?

Re: Summertime, and your printer's seem idle?

Those black propellers look very good. How did you get them to print so cleanly? I tried using supports but mine turned out like your grey ones Yes, I agree. I did look at the possibilty of volunteering when Phil first asked, but decided that the propellors would prove too difficult and kept my fin...

Re: GVT in miniature

Looking good Rik.
Looking forward to seeing the alyout in due course.
I've looked at drawing up an SM32 version of the loco, several times, but never quite got around to it. So it will be interesting to see your running one day.

I imagine this to be early 50s Dorset (though sometimes it’s a 2022 heritage line).
No reason why you can't have a flexible calendar to go wth the traditional flexible ruler! :lol: :lol:

Re: The Railway in the Valley of the Mill

That is an absolutely superb picture, well done to both of you.
It actually looks like a real narrow gauge train in a real narrow gauge station.

Re: 5" gauge Tiger

Success! Took some time but was worth it. Of course the engine is rarely run backwards but when shunting or moving to and from the steaming bays, reverse is needed. (And, even if you hardly use something, it just has to work.) Absolutely right. It would have been criminal to build a beautiful model...

Re: Semi-scale BR: The Modernisation Plan

To my eye, either 2 or 4 car units look best. The 2 car looks like a self contained 'DMU' and the 4-car looks like a train, whilst the 3 car looks as though there is something missing. However, they all look good. :D
