I’ve been working on some details for the modified 3D printed loco.
This is based on this photo of ‘Fox’, with a little artistic licence to ensure it fits into the cab.
Obviously, it’s much taller and deeper than a real boiler back plate but it needs to cover the motor and fly wheel of the Minitrains chassis.
Only 23mm high (under 1 inch), it was made from scrap pieces of styrene from my ‘bits box’ – very enjoyable.
Very nice. Look forward to seeing it painted.
Thanks Chris 🙂 Painting plastic to look like a sight glass full of water is going to be fun !!??
Thanks Paul 🙂
