Re: Another Ruston-ish (Proctor)

Rik,
I have various drawings (not sure of the source so I won't post them here). PM me your email address if you would like a copy.

I like the cab on the Regner loco! Very smart.

Re: Another Faller Railbus

I've always liked these. I have an ETrain one that i started to repaint years ago that really needs stripping back and starting again.

The green works very well on yours.

I find that thin plastic 'ripples' if you use solvent adhesive for this.
Good old Wilko's brush on superglue! I used Revel Contacta for the De Winton but the fine nozzle keeps glueing itself up.

Re: Stuart's occasional loco thread - Boot Lane Works 'Lilibet'

Thanks guys.
Forgot to say that I have wrapped the smokebox (front and top), tank top, firebox wrapper and cab sides in thin styrene to avoid spending weeks sanding the 3D prints.

Re: Stuart's occasional loco thread - Boot Lane Works 'Lilibet'

Thansk Phil. It will be plain green as per the cylinders, although it is very tempting to paint it black and put CAMBRIAN on the tank sides!

Re: Stuart's occasional loco thread - Boot Lane Works 'Lilibet'

Time and mojo have been lacking recently but I have been working on the body as and when. I've had an unexpected weekend at home so I have been able to complete the main construction, and the loco is now ready for painting: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53638273744_0e7fde1b73_c.jpg Boot Lane W...

Re: Stuart's occasional loco thread - Boot Lane Works 'Lilibet'

One completed and working chassis. A very well thought out design but very fiddly - how people make valve gear in 009 is beyond me! I changed the recommended build order so that I could paint as I went along and got in a right mess trying to put the crankpins afterwards. The holes in the printed ins...

Re: Stuart's occasional loco thread - Boot Lane Works 'Lilibet'

Do you have any close up shots of the gearbox etc. I have a number of self made 3D printed gearboxes that might fit your needs. I did one gearbox for a friend so they could use metal gears in their loco, which is wasn't designed for and even made them bushes to change the gears from 1/8th to 3mm to...

Re: Stuart's occasional loco thread - Boot Lane Works 'Lilibet'

Love to see a loco build no matter how long it takes. How's the de Winston doing BTW? Not good unfortunately. I was very disappinted with the engineering side of it, mainly the gearbox which I found impossible to assemble without either glueing it all solid or having the bearings come loose and let...

Re: Stuart's occasional loco thread - Boot Lane Works 'Lilibet'

I live in West Wales, not far from Saundersfoot. I know the railway tunnels well and it is no wonder the 4ft gauge locos (Rosalind and Bull Dog) were so low as there is barely enough headroom to walk through them. I'm sure the walkway surface has been raised slightly, but it must have been hazardou...
