Re: Gmeinder & Co loco

Thanks guys.

Simon, The cab interior was printed just sitting on the bed the right way up.
The two grilles were angled at about 33 degrees from the the vertical for printing.

This is a screenshot of it in Chitubox prior to slicing.

Re: Gmeinder & Co loco

Wow, that is good! Especially the cab detail. Rik Thanks Rik. It remains to be seen how well the fine bits will print! Well, the answer to my own question is, "They printed pretty well, I think" Still a bit of cleaning up needed but basically straight out of the UV curer. The first pictur...

Re: Gmeinder & Co loco

Been working on the mech for this loco. When I built the Chingford Contractors Loco I used an "N20GearMotor" with a cross shaft output. The motor is fine but the shafts are a few mm too short to allow a 28mm B-B, so I ended up with 3d printed extended wheel hubs which are less than totally...

Very odd, I will try it again I just bought one for 40p (plus P&P), but they should be £7.27 (plus P&P) at the moment. No idea what's going on. If not just do a search for RC Diesel Engine Simulation Sound Module 5-8.4V Input 2W Small Horn Speaker For Remote Control Car Boat Airplane DIY Mo...

Except it says it can't be shipped to the UK.. Phil.P I must be special then? :dontknow: akiexpress1.png Steve, whats the link for that one then?

Sadly, most things that I look at on Aliexpress, say they can't ship to UK ( no idea why not?), although I did actually manage to buy a motor from them yesterday- first thing I've ever managed to get!

I've been fiddling about with the details, it's amazing how many there are on two or three not brilliant photo's, once you really start looking! Anyway, this is where it is as of now: I've tried to produce an animated gif using Gifcap, having seen what others have done in the past, but I can't find ...

Re: DYI Arduino radio control for garden train

Brilliant, but Arduino and libraries etc, are beyond me I'm afraid - that is no criticism of your English, which is equally brilliant. :D

Yes, thats about what I was thinking as well, thanks, just wondered if anyone else might see something different.

Can't help with the IP one ( I didn't actually realise they did one) but there are pictures of my 3d printed one on the thread I did at the time.

Re: HGLW loco tweak

It's looking a lot better, but it's never going to be a Rolls Royce finish, methinks?

Every time you post a picture I'm struck by how visually similar it is to my Gmeinder. It will be interesting to compare the two once they are both finished.

Re: Gmeinder & Co loco

Looking again at the website that Rik linked to originally, I realised that there is a picture of the loco and its train from the far end. It's a long way away and little detail is visible, but there is definitely an opening which equates to the radiator grille at the front but seems to have a solid...

Re: Gmeinder & Co loco

Been fiddling some more... Now have the makers plate on the rear bonnet side, the bell, radiator cap and a "blackout light". I'm not altogether happy with the light, but its a really complicated 3d shape and this is the best I could come up with so far. I might have another go at it in the...

I would expect they wouldn't have kept the blackout lamps fitted during peacetime operation, unless perhaps Peckforton was home to a secret military base.
Doing some searches there are quite a few preserved vehicles which still carry them ( as you might expect)

Edited to add, that I've just found a taillight on ebay manufactured by the same company and I just wonder if that is the red blobs? Logically they could have needed rear lightt as well .Take a look at https://www.ebay.ca/itm/385685812805?itmmeta=01HQNNM689K8G5RD7KB7K94K9K&hash=item59ccaa7645:g:...
