Hi All
I have done a Passenger Ship in T gauge but needs lots of work doing to it as I have only printed it all in sections and glued together.

Will need detailling ,but lots of filing first. :D

I have left it all open as I could have full windows and lights and a working rep gen for the two funnels.

Now where is all my paseengers gone to mmmmm , this thing is defently in docks getting its maker over done. :lol:

Please leave our comments below.

That's an impressive set of prints, Graham. Well done!!

And if you've done these in ABS as suggested by your comment on the Conway thread, then what you've done is even more impressive. 8-) 8-) 8-)

That is really impresive work. Could you place a photo of the whole ship with sometching (eg. match) next to it to get better feeling of size ?

Judging by where the joins are....I'd say this ship is something like three feet long!

You'll have to try and get to a show where I'll have The Bridge on show. It's made for sitting under the centre span!!!! ;) ;) ;) ;)

Hi Dough

That sounds brill for placing the passenger ship under the Bridge.

I am now working on the passenger liner so that it should be ready for when I bring it down. :D

ps may leave Low Moor as I will be visiting the show rather than being in it.due to comitments. :lol:

details of white and may be a royal blue for the water line.
getting some t gauge brass sheet fencing to go around and then i will require modern life boats :?:


Will keep you all posted on the progress.

Hi All

I have done some more work on the passenger Liner.

Still lots to do but I have managed to print some lifeboats for it.
Just rigs and lines with plenty of people. :D


Regards
Graham
