Now that might be quite easy to address....

I just need to create a variation of one of the existing arctic trailers to get an large tanker...and a variation of the four wheeled lorry for a smaller tanker.

I'd probably do a different body style tractor unit for the arctic version.

On the contrary, I'm looking for inspiration from the user base.

I'd prefer to spend time developing things that users want rather than developing things that I think the user base wants!

Not 100% finished....but nearly there, an artic tanker. Please excuse the fact there's no wheels and that the colour of the plastic doesn't make it look good!!!:

All I can say is great, I thought you weren't going to to anything till the Bridge made its first appearance. :D

Looks like I am going to have to start saving pennies , because my wish list from the shop is getting bigger. And then I still have to get the adjustable chassis :roll:

I've had an afternoon waiting for a couple of prints for the layout to come of one of my printers.....and I thought I'd occupy the time doing something useful. ;) ;)

Another Modern Station design I have spotted on a Youtube video is Whitehaven in Cumbria

I've finally managed to pull together the next new product for the shop..to complete the commercial transport range I'll be making available a set of five vans. Here's a print of the set alongside the larger vehicles that are currently available....and one of the cars from Shapeways (can't remember the maker's name :oops: :oops:)

As they're all based on British vans, they'll obviously have to be painted white! ;)

Apologies to non-UK members who won't get the joke!

Don't they do a white filament just to make life easy.

Unlike Mr Ford's emporium, this factory doesn't enforce the rule "Any colour you like...as long as it's black."

Just a tweak of black for the tyres and windows and this latest group will be ready for the show!!!
