N scale projects

Postby galaxy_gfx on 09 Oct 2017, 13:29

Hi,

As an introduction to my modeling work, I'd like to share some photos of past and ongoing N scale projects.

Some C64K with coal load:

HXN3 carbody parts and bogies:

DF7D bogies (carbody to come soon):

This one is going to be just an approximation of the prototype, using an old Life-Like GP38 mechanism. At the time I started construction, I had no drawings at hand, but the type seemed to be a good exercise to gain experience in fitting complicated roof details.

Finally, a modified CMR DF4B:

Most of the scratch-built models are urethane castings. The molds don't hold for too many copies (not using a proper vacuum chamber), but in most cases, some spare shells can be cast if anyone is interested...

Cheers,
Zsolt

Thanks! Some update on the DF7D:

This is already a raw resin casting of the shell, with deburring and filling of air bubbles yet to be done. The rooftop radiator louvers will be glued on separately to allow free combination of open and closed louver castings.

Some progress on the HXN3 roof:

The dynamic brake section will have a diferent insert for the louvered version. Also, the radiator section is built as a separate insert to make installation of the radiator grills easier.

Recent work on the DF7D:

Radiator louver masters:

(The rest of the patterns on the tray are louvers, intakes and window frames for various DF4 versions)

Four shells (for 0002 and 0021 in green, 0027 and 0028 in orange):
