I haven’t blogged about my 3D printing endeavours for a while, in fact the last time I wrote anything on this topic was back in
At that point:
I’d had my first three models 3D printed by Shapeways and while I’d been pleased with the results I’d had a few design problems and been a bit disappointed by some surface quality issues. I’d designed my first set of decals. I’d designed a sheet of etched parts for the three models that I’d had printed.
Since then I’ve been busily working on this project and now have some promising results to share.

I thought it might be worth doing a series of posts to share some of the layouts and models that I have found inspirational in the hope that they might inspire you too.
So here is Schwungischerplatz…

In the words of it’s creators
(Marc Fuller of Ickenham & District Society of Model Engineers), Schwungischerplatz is: “…an N gauge model railway layout representing a busy scene in a German city”. Continue reading “Inspirational Layouts #1: Schwungischerplatz”
I’ve had some time to do some CAD work recently and I’ve been putting together a mesh file to create a European style swap-tank.

Back in December I showed off some designs for 3D printed tanktainers that I’d planned to have printed by Shapeways. I’ve received the models back and had some time to review them and overall I’m very impressed with the results.
Read on to see pictures of the printed models and to find out what worked and what didn’t…
