A new range of 3D printed silos in N Scale have been in production and are currently on track for and end of June 2023 release. These include an S008, S016 and an S024 silo, and will be 3D printed.
There will also be a range of HO Scale silos that will also be 3D printed, they will include the existing range of S008, S016 and S024, as well as the S027, and The 50,000 bushell range of sil0s listed elsewhere on this web site. The Z20 Class Loco kit will be released at the Epping Model Railway Exhibition at Rose Hill Racecourse May 2023. With constuction classes being held later in the year. In the mean time the instructions will be slowly uploaded for modellers to read and understand. These should start in shortly.
The Z20 Loco Kit is built on an Etched Nickle Silver frame, 3D printed parts, mastered into brass castings.
Slaters wheels with a Roxy Mouldings 40:1 gear box driven by a Mashima 1833 motor.
I have had 3D prints made in clear plastic for head lamp inserts and the back head sight glass. The inserts will accept small LED's or fibre optics.
The kit will have 2 options for speakers and will have advice as to what DCC sound decoder will be suitable to add to the kit. The 2 locations will be in the Smoke Box and or the Bunker. The speaker boxes will be of the sugar cube variety. They will not be included in the kit, but a link will be provided for you to purchase both the speakers and the boxes in the instructions.
The kit will come in a timber box with each kit numbered, that will act as a carry box when the model is complete.
I will also be holding build days at my home in Picton, later in 20230. The dates will be published as they become available and will allow for plenty of oppurtunity to be involved with these build days.
Please e-mail me with any enquiries, or questions.
While the above are my objectives, it may take some time for these things to be realised, so in the mean-time, have a look at some of the other pages on my site, and if you feel inclined to do so, throw some feedback at me via e-mail , it would help to improve the site.
