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.
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.
Please leave our comments below.

You Know you want to fill it with passengers and crew.

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.

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 ?

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

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

Hi T Guage people
Just to give you all another update on how things are doing.
I have started now to paint it and it is looking some what better than before
I have used gloss blue 15 humbrol for the hull and will use the gloss 22 white for the upper decks.
hope you enjoy.

The ship looks very good while painting started. Congratulations. To get more realistic model I would suggest painting lifeboats orange instead of red. Very often they are two colours with lower part to waterline beeing painted white. Sometimes top is yellow. I am not 100% sure about maritime safety regulations but I think red is "reserved" for firefighting and coastquard. Probably you may find so me more information using word "SOLAS". The model is impressive !
