Not necessarily the workbench as such but moreso my japanese themed layout. Been a bit quiet of late, life has been particularly busy, one aspect being a house move at reasonably short notice, so after the furniture was out of the lounge I had to pull the modules apart from the spare room and it gave me a chance to lay them all together. It struck me how big this has become! What I’m thinking is make the front modules temporary track so they can be dismantled as it’s been a mission to move it I must say! The front modules currently have the track removed but are not yet stripped down.
Another option I thought was to make it 8 modules by using the straights from the edges (the river and engine shed modules) as the back straights… They’d need modifying to connect them realistically but it would mean a smaller and perhaps more manageable layout although at the expense of some running miles.
The AO cars and TranzAlpine consist are still at Hutt shops at the moment… Awaiting windows and roofs to be fitted however the sign writers have been busy with decals.March 29, 2017 at 10:32 pm #4445

Pretty happy with the finish, just window glazing to go on the DC
Edit: photos haven’t uploaded
Anyone else have issues uploading from an iPad? The pictures are selected then disappear from the screen with no evidence to show if they’ve been uploaded or not

Finished the DX today, overall relatively happy with it, its paint and cab could’ve been assembled a bit better but from 3ft away its good enough. Now teamed up with the DC its almost ready to haul its Tranzalpine set. The DX is sitting on a Kato SD40-2 which runs very well.
Had to have a go at a storage system for my modules too, went with Sistema containers cut apart and then held together with wooden stringers (unseen in the photo). Will have to move house soon so needed some means of transporting the 8 modules. The corner ones don’t quite fit any container, so still thinking how I’ll get around that puzzle.September 27, 2017 at 11:24 pm #4656

My 90’s/00’s collection coming along in various states of completion, in fact the only thing completed is the DX and the mainline steam tank wagonMay 12, 2018 at 1:14 am #4816
Just curious what programs people have used when it comes to designing 3D prints to upload to shapeways?
I’ve got a bit of spare time away from home so was wondering if this was something I could do remotely.
Is tinkercad one of them?
Thanks in advanceMay 20, 2018 at 11:44 pm #4841
I user Tinkercad.com – basic but versatile. I’ve used Autocad in the past, but it’s a bit overkill for what we need for 3D models.
