New products for the Talking T Gauge shop???

Postby dkightley » Sun May 22, 2016 10:41 pm

In about a month's time I'll have some time available to start thinking about extending the range of 3D printed products in the shop....so I thought I'd start a thread to give everyone the opportunity to put forward ideas for new items.

What sort of printed items would you like me to take a look at producing?

All suggestions and ideas will be considered...so over to you all!

Bungalows, Mobile homes(quite a lot of mobile home sites are near railways be they holiday homes or residential), Arcade (3-4) of modern 70's style shops, smaller more modern station building.
Rolling stock wise waiting in anticipation of your wagons, maybe bogie tank wagons( would work well as are freight traffic for the bridge) and possibly a car coach for the old London Olympia/Stirling overnight motorail sleeper trains. Would a class76 work stretched a little bit to fit a 16m chassis then I can use some of those overheads that I took off my 103 sets Totally different option for people - try to model parts of the Woodhead route.


Just my 2p worth for now. :P

Does any one do a church, seen the one on the video on You Tube of Robins Run which I like and the lasercut one on T Gauge.com website but a simple square tower and nave would be perfect(a bit like the Kestrel One in N Gauge)

The church on Robins Run is a paper model. I bought a bag of part complete N gauge paper/cardboard building kits for a measly sum (50p, I think) at a show a few years ago and scanned and printed a 1/3 copy of the cards for this church, and made it up from that.

I think a church similar to that one is going to make the "to do" list.

I've got a few bungalows from The Bridge that I could tweak.....another one for the list.

I do have some mineral wagons printed for testing.....I think the problem may be weight - they might be too light!! But another one for the list.

On the loco shell front, I could easily take a look at one or two different loco classes. A 76 could be the first candidate. I do wish the three axle bogies were available, though!!

Mike..would you be able to dig out some photos of the 70s style shops and station building you have in mind.

Will sort out pictures later. I think possibly both could be single storey and variations on your Bank building.

I know picture of N gauge model but something similar in a row of 3 might work. Sort of mini arcade found on council estates.
Station Building I cant paste link to picture but something along the lines of Sevenoaks Station or something similar, I believe I managed to post a picture of something more modern in my thread viewtopic.php?f=10&t=373.
Another possible modern style industrial buildings as seen on trading estates up and down the country

I'd certainly be interested in rolling stock - UK wagons, GWR by choice! ;}

Have to admit when I was thinking about bits I did not include shape ways because it is a pain from the mobile phone.
