Märklin Roundhouse #8983 at scale ratio 1/220 has been scanned with a 3D scanner, down scaled at ratio 1/450 and printed for use at my t-gauge layout.

To get sharpest and finest window grates they were printed separately, painted and glued on the facade

Brilliant roundhouse! Will you share the stl file or post on Shapeways? I'm sure other modelers would like one!

Ahh, yes, since it's a scan. No worries, still looks fantastic!

That's an interesting point re IP and 3d scanning....it could easily reach a similar status as "zone 51" with all the discussions...

Here's one interesting article that probably sums up the current situation: https://www.wipo.int/wipo_magazine/en/2 ... _0006.html

Completing t-gauge roundhouse a turning platform will be added.


First test of turning platform at t-gauge scale 1/450 with steam locomotive BR01 you can find on my YouTube channel

That turntable is great! I'm contemplating a small engine terminal display and would like one. Is it a worm gear drive?
