I love this. It's so good to see people designing and modelling from scratch in this gauge. I look forward to seeing the finished model presentation.

it`s time to update my work:

(696.62 KiB) Not downloaded yet

just assembled to get some fotos. The wheels of the last bogie are not magnetic up to now and so they jumped out of the track.

(283.13 KiB) Not downloaded yet

All parts are printed by Shapeways and they fit perfectly. The tender kernel is made of brass and at the position of each bogie I placed an isolation block.

On top the blocks have two small slots (0,8mm) to put in the springs. On top the springs are soldered with an isolated copper wire and on the bottom they are placed into the bogie. The tender has a weight of about 2,75g

Very good job ! Congratulations.
I think you might have a problem with the lokomotive. I am not sure but it looks that after painting the 3D printed body still some oily spots appeared ... It is not easy to clean those 3D prints very well before painting. Sometimes it happens to my models as well so I try to make my cleaning process better and better.
Is this FUD or FXD material ?
