Hi
Do you think that you can do double decker buses as i will be doing layouts as they will be in the town centers.

Hi Doug

Do you think that we need some sort of construction vehicles ie grinders,JCB,Rollers, etc and cement mixers,modern double decker buses, fork lifts with more cars for the layouts? :)

Thinking of more action on the roads? :!:

I'll have a think about what I'm able to produce from my printer. Unfortunately, FFF printers don't have the same fine resolution as some of the resin curing type printers....like Shapeways have.

Hi Doug.

Yep I have got a Da-vinchi 1.0a but can not get it to print at this small fine level like you can.

Hope to get the new Noble from XYZ at £1000.00 when the piggy bank is fat enough as this printer will do very fine detail and it is a resin printer formed by the lasers.

Will let you know when I have got this as we can then expand the T Gauge range,but this will be at the end of this now that other things are happening.


I am using obj files for my modeling and STL files for the printers. :D :!:

Yep Shapeways are good but they are getting expensive.


Regards
Graham :lol:

Nowhere near finished, though. I'll work on it further when I get chance....

At least I have another chassis type to develop some more lorry styles.

Hi Doug
I was wondering if you are planning on doing some Oil Tanker trucks short and long version?
