Hello! I have a 158 all drawn up and on shapeways, however I've not made it available because I don't have a chassis to test it on. I'm more than happy to release it if you want to order one to see?

Hi Matt
Yes please as I was wanting theses for some time now.
I am hopefully making a representation of Leeds central Station as it is today but will have to cut down on the points.

thank you for replying quickly.

ps what it your username on shapeways as i will add you to my followers so that if you release anything else in T Gauge i will be taking an interest.

Regards
Graham

Hi Graham,

Here is a link to the product:

https://www.shapeways.com/product/4BLMR ... -class-158

You can see everything else in my shop there too (none of which is yet available). The only reason i've not made it available beforehand is I don't have any motor units the correct size to do a test fitting. I did get a test print though and it looks pretty good to me!

If you do order one, please let me know what you think and I'll make any changes if necessary!

Hope you like them! From memory I designed them to fit on the 23m chassis, but with the narrow body shape I think I had to make some compromises so a chassis could fit. Hopefully it'll all work out okay!

Hi Graham

How are the units? I saw on another thread that you've painted them up! Any feedback or anything with the design that could be changed or tweaked?

Would be great to see some pictures too!

Hi matt
Yes they are looking great in the Northern Rail Livery.
Only one thing to note is that the bottom part of the model,I think that this should just be flat rather than a pitched bottom in between the bogies.

will post up date of picture when i get the chance.

regards
Graham

Hi Matt
No I did not paint with a stencil,I used my free painting method but did all units at the same time to ensure that they are the same.
Just waiting for pay day before getting the chassis for all of them.
will keep you posted as I will need to do the numbering if poss or transfers for different types that roll around here in Yorkshire.

Graham :lol:

Hi Matt
Just to let you know that the Cl 158 are just a bit longer by 2 to 3mm for the 23m rolling chassis ,but still fit snug into the slot easy.

Will let you have pics when getting round to it.

Graham
