Re: CDR Railcar No. 10

Rik, Looking at the picture of the white seats, you seem to have a pincushion/pillowing effect on some of them. Not sure if its just the internal structure showing through or if it's an actual physical effect? However, the way to get rid of it is to increase the number of top layers in the slicer. I...

Re: Prusa i3 3d printer

MetalMuncher suggested this was more of a project than a printer. He's quite right. But in many ways, I feel I'm learning more by having to fiddle and tweak to get it working as reliably as I would want. I'm hoping I can improve the quality of the prints as I make these improvements. Until I reach ...

was there a reason you put the main sidings area on the right hand side where the access to the gas bottles is required as opposed to the left hand side?
Yes, I wondered that as well. From the other side of the world, here, it looks to be crying out to be flipped left to right?

Re: The Ballinacraig and Derrylecka Light Railway

In particular I do like the viaduct setting and especially the corrugated iron roofed cottage. That whole row sits so realistically in front of the viaduct, somehow.

Re: Lord Elderbury's Stately Home

Ooh, how t'other 'arf live! Excellent concept, design and execution. Interested in your experience printing window frames. I have considered buying one of the cheap 3D printers from eBay (much as Rik has done) with the primary intent of printing window frames.In my probable naivety I imagine they s...

Re: Lord Elderbury's Stately Home

Thanks for the kind comments chaps. I thought might be better to do a 'How I dunnit' in reverse so to speak, so you can see the final result first. However to answer Grant's question first, the machine is a robot lawn mower. There is a wire running round the lawn area to be mowed and the machine jus...

Lord Elderbury's Stately Home

It's been a looooong time coming! I started this back last September and it's been a labour of love, bordering on hate at times. I've had to back track on one major element and it still needs a little tweaking, but basically, Maurice Mower, 4th Lord Elderbury now has a home that befits his station. ...

That link didn't work for me Dave due to a time zone issue, however, I found it on FB (you don't need to be an user to watch it):
Sadly I couldn't get Dave's link to work either, but unfortunately neither does the Faceache one... that requires me to log in or create an account.
