I have now put my remaining 1930s models (Austin 7s) up on Shapeways.

Direct link to this model in my shop: http://shpws.me/M8U1

I have printed these but have not yet had a chance to paint them. When I have done so I will load some pictures.

Currently in my shop as a set of 3 models, but as always, if anyone want a different quantity or a different mix of models then just ask.

I have placed an order at tgauge.com for a pack of adjustable chassis. I guess I was tired of moving the single chassis I had between the bodies I have made or bought each time!

The parcel may be here already. I had a card through the door whilst I was out to say there is an item to sign for at the sorting office. Do tgauge.com send out parcels needing a signature? So long since I placed an order I can not remember.

Either way I will now have 4 new chassis, and will have to decide what to build on them.

They require signatures.

A quick 'whats on my workbench' photo. I am currently getting stuck in painting a batch of road vehicles and accessories. Show here after the first coat of paint, so still need windows, wheels and details painting in. Some of the other models I am also painting at the same time (not shown in this photo) have been cleaned in hot water rather than white spirits, which leaves the prints clear so for those I will just need to paint round the windows. ('just' being a relative term in T - where is that 00000 brush?)

One photo that I have not shown yet on the forum, my boxcar painted and mounted on a cut down 19m chassis.

And another photograph of my models.

These are a couple of Austin 7s which I painted for Doug. Shown are the convertible (with the printed screen) and the van, I have yet to paint a saloon but that will be in my next batch.

The end of the week, so I thought I would add a preview of a vehicle that I am currently working on.

Not for sale just yet, as can be seen it still needs some obvious details, i.e. wheel centres, spare wheel on bonnet etc. But when done should be useful if anyone is planning a military train (I have just put my 1/450 Land Rover Ambulance for sale in a pack of 6 for the same reason)

Once the common details are complete I plan to get two different models from this, one with the hood up, and also one with the hood down which will have a visible interior (which I know is possible because I did it on my Austin 7 Tourer.


I am still working on my wartime bus. Also, have now taken delivery of a pack of adjustable chassis I do have other plans for US and UK outline freight stock, with a spread from the 1930s through to the current day.

As promised in another thread, here is the first of the designs for rolling stock that I am hopeful will all be completed this week.

Our laptop is on its last legs and about to expire soon. The laptop I had borrowed, which I could have used as a backup, needs to be returned. Hence the push to get these models complete. If all get done there will be 2xUS and 1xUK.

This is the first of those models. A 40ft wagontop boxcar from the steam/early diesel era. This has been designed to fit the adjustable chassis, but will equally well fit the 19m coach chassis. This, and the other two models I hope to release this week, are all available as a single model or as a set of 3 (to reduce the unit cost per model). If anybody wants a different quantity then just ask.

The second of three promised models. This time a UK wagon from modern times, a nuclear flask wagon.

Something a bit different, but these do get seen on a number of routes across the country. Also they tend to be in short trains (would not want too much of this stuff in one place at one time!), so easy to model the whole train.

As before the model is available in my shop singly http://shpws.me/MvK4 or as a set of 3 http://shpws.me/MvKk
