I thought you hadn't posted very much, recently, now we can see why. Very nice, looking forward to more as things progress.

Nice work, you've really captured the distinctive (and very attractive) look of those...

Looks great Rik. It's been a long while since I modelled in O-16.5 and back then 3D printers weren't a thing, so it's really interesting to see how good your prints are looking in 7mm scale!

Rik

Looking absolutely brilliant, great detail.

Would your files scale to 16mm scale? This is one that is high on my to do list :thumbup:

I'm more or less certain they will. I've not tried rescaling any of them as yet, but I can't see any reason why they can't.

I've still got a few more items of stock to draw; a couple of coach variations, a van, a slate wagon, a bolster wagon and I want to redo the mineral wagon which I downloaded from Thingiverse. I also want to draw the other d sign of loco, so I'm not yet ready to start rescaling what I've done so far. However, I'll happily post them in the 3D section if anyone fancies having a go in the meantime.

BTW - I wired up the loco this afternoon - a couple of li ion phone cells and a Deltang Rx65a. I decided I didn't fancy going back to track power. Seems to work ok.

I so much prefer remote control with the Deltang system, I plan to try doing this with one of my 009 locos when the round tuits finally arrive. I know other people have managed this (probably not with an Rx65 mind you!) but I will need to investigate small batteries!

I have problems with the little red worms.. So need to sort the drive on the loco, but there is room for the receiver and battery.. :?
