Also; by coincidence; I was rooting through a box of miscellaneous bits and pieces at the "Famous Trains" building and would you believe came across two packs of LNWR seats under the trade name "Shire Scenics". Needles to say these have been liberated and I attach a quick photo from my phone camera.

A quick search shows them on the Shirescenes website as..... (LNWR) SEATS 00/N S44.

All the best

Thank you Jol - e-mail sent to Dave.

Peter - didn't know about the Shirescenes seats but they look to be easier to assemble with no metal folding, but not as accurate with the metal being on edge instead of flat. I do however like the back rail with the routed section for the station name.

Hi,

I've just had a seat printed in the UK by 3D print 'N Scan at http://www.3dprintnscan.co.uk - they've done a very quick service and were very nice to deal with - I'll report back with some photo's once I receive them.

Can someone recommend the paints to use please - I want the seat in LNWR colours.

Many thanks.

Regards
Paul

Just got the parts from 3DprintNscan..

Really pleased with the quality ... 3DprintNscan were really nice to deal with and did a very fast service.

The only problem is I can't figure out how to put the parts together - my fingers are just too big relative to the parts.

The CAD drawing was originally done in Sketchup then converted to STL format.

Cheers
Paul

Hi,


I've just had another set of 3D printing done for the model by Rhys 3dPrintNScan .. http://www.3dprintnscan.co.uk

- they are just so nice to work with and really fast making the parts.... here are the next pieces which I think are just amazing...


waiting room signs, station running boards, LNWR station direction sign "To the Motor Car Railway" !! - window frames, and doors....

I'm just so pleased with these parts and the wonderful service from 3dPrintNscan

The posts are long on the running board to allow for it being sited on an embankment as in the original CAD images.

Cheers
Paul

Just to let you know there are Southwark Bridge models 4mm items on Ebay though I am bidding for them!!

I'd hate us to be driving the price up between us though if other are going to bid then perhaps we should keep each other in the picture? In the old days when you could see the other bidders I always knew that F Webb was Steve Weston!


all the best

The Southwark Bridge seats have more prototypical end supports and would possibly be more robust in a larger scale. I am sure Dave Hammersley at Roxey Mouldings would be willing to help if the artwork still exists and is in digital form.

Unfortunately, six weeks later, he is yet to reply to me, so I conclude he doesn't want to do it. Looks like I'll have to do it myself, which is a lot more time consuming. Fortunately I have a real one to measure!

Those window frames are extremely fine Paul. Very nice. The style of the lettering on the boards is interesting and not like LNWR ones I have seen - where did you get that from?

Hi Peter,

I won’t bid on them - you spotted them first !

Good luck.

Cheers
Paul

Hi Mike,

I copied the style of the running in board from those at Shepshed and Loughborough Derby Road - however I’ll study the lettering again to see if I’ve got it right or not - thanks for pointing this out - I’ll report back.

Cheers
Paul
