Re: N scale projects

Thanks for the compliment! Being an automation/robotics research engineer, my job has, in itself, little to do with model railways - nevertheless, both profession and hobby do benefit from each other. Sometimes, I use very much the same prototyping and casting techniques whenever some precise parts ...

Re: N scale projects

Just a minor technical note: The protruding rim on top of the side walls was glued onto the shell master as a separate detail (white styrene strips, with UV-curing glue). This is visible in this picture, too: http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p62_190429_1.jpg Well, this is something I will de...

Re: Models coming

DF11Z, that's even better news! These seem to come under the Minitown brand though - is there, by chance, the same manufacturer behind the Minitown and Kunter brands?

Re: Models coming

Wow, the DF8B is really good news. A while ago, I thought about building a "classical" DF8 shell that would fit a CMR Line DF4 chassis - now, it's worth waiting for the mechanism that has the correct wheelbase right away. Also, I wonder if the DF11G will receive different bogies with the slightly la...

Re: N scale projects

Hello all, Trying to get back on track, with moderate success... Some progress on the P62 master: http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p62_190422.jpg The W5/W6 would have the same core and underframe, so I'll do these as well. As for now, the side walls were cut and filed to size: http://galaxy....
