T Scale Class 42 Warship

Postby grahame » Sun Dec 14, 2014 2:35 am

Today I received my 3D printed Class 42 body shell from Shapeways in the USA. It is very wonderful. The detail is amazing (USA 1 cent for scale..slightly smaller than a 1p coin for UK readers). I hope I can do it justice. Step 1 is done. Sprayed British Railways Dark Green. Hoping to produce a T scale "Onslaught". Provided the body turns out OK I will then buy the required 19M motorised chassis from Alan Ramsay :)

Looks awesome! Can't wait to see the outcome! What kind of layout theme are you going to do? (I wasn't sure what Onslaught means)

I was the same, but a quick Google check reveals it is named "Onslaught" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_Class_42#Class_details
