Re: 3D modeling tool

I am using 3DS Max 2019 currently. I also have 3 hired designers working for me, but I have to say that I never asked what they use - as long as they deliver what I want ;)

For slicer for my home 3D Prints, I use CURA 3

1928 Rhine river cargo ship Cimbria in T-Gauge

Hi, As the demand on my previous ship, tug Simla, was good in T-Gauge scale, I just released the rhine river cargo ship Cimbria from 1928 in T-Gauge also. See here: http://shpws.me/QQQ1 This little ship is a typical inland motor freighter designed in middle of the 1920es for european rivers. These w...

Re: new stuff

Just got one of your Class 108 DMU in a shapeways' parcel. It looks great! Now, I have a challenge to digitalize it - DCX77L decoder also arrived ;)

Re: Waiting impatiently

Great! I just received my start set. GNER livery 125 was not yet ready, but I got a 19m chassis + adjustable chassis pack, enough to experiment a bit. Decoder and Class 108 from Shapeways are incoming. I was thinking where to place it, and I found the place - I have a TT-gauge module in construction...

Re: Norm headpieces for modular layout

Well, I dont think normalizing module size is a good idea. You can have a tiny curve "cheese slice" sector as a module, a long straight piece, or an entire station, as long as they could be coupled together. In TT, we have this kind of norm http://www.fktt-module.de/de/node/73 where there are a few ...

Re: Waiting impatiently

Hi! Welcome in club - I am also waiting for the same thing ;) I got the class 125 HST, one 19m chassis, set of adjustable chassis, a starter 132mm loop, plus a few extra rail pieces, including switches and straights. From another store, I expect a DCX77l nano decoder for DCC, and I would mate it all...

Re: Norm headpieces for modular layout

Sounds good. I would probably try to design a headpiece based on FKTT norm which I use for my TT-gauge modules.

Norm headpieces for modular layout

Hi,

In other scales, like TT, H0 or N, there are common standards for modular layouts, allowing people to build modules, and assemble them when desired. Is there something like this for T-gauge?
With my T-gauge start set sent today, I would gladly plan like this.

Re: Ships for T Gauge

I have a bigger rowing boats set nearly done, too (russian standard 20 oared cutter for warships, but could be used nearly anywhere in fact), would be ready in a few days, too.

There is a scale selector just above the price and material - 1/350 default, but 1/450 and 1/700 also available

My demo layout

Hi, being new to T gauge, I was however watching it evolve over years. Being myself 1:350 and 1:700 ship modeler, and TT-gauge modeler, i wanted to go smaller, but stay digital. With the advent of the micro decoders like DCX77z, it is now possible, so I ordered a starting set for a small demo and ex...

Ships for T Gauge

I am originally, and additionally, a ship model maker, and I have a few ships, like harbor barges or tugs, offered on shapeways in 1:350 or 1:700. Would there be an interest if I would provide a 1:450 scale variant?

Hi, I am going to try to adapt the automation which I have running on my TT-Gauge railway, to T-Gauge one. I use DCC for train running (that should work with the micro decoder from D&H in T-Gauge), Rocrail software for controlling and automation(server on Raspberry Pi, over USB-to-Serial adapter fro...

I am going downscale from TT gauge, and plan to run the same DCC equipment as now (either Roco or selfmade Pc serial adaptor) with selfdesigned arduino boards driving servos and lights. I also orde...
