Been crook the past couple of days, so you know what that means.
I been designing and building, well just the road verge & linemarking, the rest had been done over the past few weeks.

This I did a few weeks back.
Started out with a drum (3D printed) and some clear orange painted plastic.
A two dollar flickering LED tea light candle gives it a nice un-uniform flicker.

Posted Image

Then a ball of cotton wool superglued to the top, then pulled apart to shape.

Posted Image

Finished in place, shame pics don't show flicker.

Posted Image

Moving on to last week.

Thought a railway was in order so designed and printed a trestle, used my wife's sewing/hemming pins as the rivets, looks the biz huh.
Beams, sleepers & track also 3D printed.

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image

Add a bit of regulatory signage (Austroads compliant of course)

Posted Image Posted Image


And its all starting to come together, need more signage though.

So for the signposts - Pop rivets, what else.

Posted Image Posted Image

Drill a 3mm hole and they sit right in.

Posted Image

Note the old linemarking in the shot above, pretty amateurish I thought, so how to make it a bit more formal?
Oh yeah 3D print of course ... duh!.

So printed out line marking and chevrons at 0.3mm thickness not perfect but a hell of a lot better.

Sometimes you just want to miniaturise yourself, Zestie's is looking mighty inviting this time of year, looks like they're doing good business too.

My daughter made me promise to put some roadkill on the track so....

Also anyone guess what the new resident in the garage is.

Thanks for the accolades.

There's a lot of trial and error going on, more error and trial than right.
But its fun, relaxing and a lot of learning as you go.
Beer helps a lot, fills in the time when you are standing around thinking how the bloody hell am I going to do this.

The camera has a lot to do with it too, is a cheap phone camera which I find hides all the mistakes.
By getting in close and focusing on the finished parts It also makes it look a lot more finished than it is.

........

I had to go to Jaycar today to get more printer filament and bugger me if they had a mini camera on sale, well just had to get that.

So what do you do first with it.

Show everyone my beer gut and unfinished track of course.

Here's a quick run showing just how much work is yet to go, I think it is going to take years.

Thought it time for a small update.
Not a lot of advancement except for mountain scene and railroad crossing.

Railroad crossing is a ramp up and down, can negotiate at a reasonable speed, but too fast and you get airborne going down the hill into the far end loop seen in pic1.
This is eventually going to be an orchard but I need to put some fencing up first, similar to the uphill side of the rail crossing, to stop cars plowing into the trees.
There will be transmission towers, last pic that will be going up along the ridgeline of the mountain range.

ZeGas, looked at all your photos nothing more i could say that hasnt been said .BUT The idea using the pop rivets brilliant. The other thing youve said is some of your resin builds may not concours but posting photos and descriptions gives me, an average builder inspiration to keep trying THANKS JOHN , AUNTY 69

Thanks John,

My building & painting must be getting better as the Corvette C1 podiumed third in last years IPS for concours.
This year I didn't spend as much time trying to go for concours with the ISO Griffo as I was developing a chassis system which took most of my time and I wanted to test that out, hence the comment.

Nice job mate . The lighting adds that little more. Glad the loco isn't live as you wouldn't want to brake down on the crossing :o :D .

You know what would make this really interesting to drive is for the steam engine to be connected to a randomly timed actuator that pushes it out of the tunnel every once in a while. Now there's something to add a bit more variety (like you need it) or wreck your cars. ... ps. ... It's coming along nicely.
