Looks good, glad to see it up and running. The builders plates are 7mm standard gauge size ones I ordered by mistake, but the do look about right.

I just remembered a few other references I have, and have emailled them to you (hopefully).

PM me if you don't get an email with some pictures in.

As far as I'm able to tell there aren't any photos of that actual type's backhead. I use photos of other bagnall 040st to work out the piping on mine. There are several preserved so they're not too tricky to find online. I think there's a site called bagofbits or similar which has a few good detail ...

The size of the loco means that to produce it in one of the finer detail materials (smoother) would make it cost a fair bit over £100 for the body. You would undoubtedly get a nicer surface, as my O9 versions are produced in FUD, but are half the size in scale, which means only 1/8 of the volume. Sh...

next project is a small Couillet 040t, though I have another sipat to finish in the mean time, and a layout to get on with!

No plans for Ozymandias, but a full article detailing its building has been submitted for inclusion in a forthcoming 7mmNGA publication. I'm afraid I'm not planning on doing a 3D printed version - the outisde frame conversion and reversing the cylinder positions requires a bit of chassis work. The f...

Thanks Simon. I'm pretty happy with them, I've actually agreed to let the open cab O9 Sipat go, thinking I only need the one (you know how you're always somehow more attached to your last built loco) but then I saw a suitable chassis come up for sale cheaply and I had a few things to order anyway....

Following today's successful arrival of test prints, Leo70 in O9 is now available in my Shapeways shop. The Gn15 (1/24) Bagnall Sipat has also printed successfully. It fits on a Bachmann Percy/Greg chassis with some modifications. It needs a chassis with a wheelbase of approx. 31.75mm-ish, and WSF t...

OK, The second test print of Leo70 arrived today and is perfect, so that oen is now available on my shapeways shop. The 1/24 (Gn15) Bagnall Sipat also arrived and has printed OK (eventually). I also got another O9 Sipat after agreeing to sell one of mine, I found another chassis cheap so I had to....

Leo70/Bagnall Sipat

I didn't have any plans for Leo70 in Gn15 as such.... The difficulty with Gn15 is that the volume of material involved increases dramatically with the bigger scales, so the price gets high. I'm still working on getting the Bagnall in 1/24 (I've prepared a 4th version of the CAD and asked shapeways t...

As far as I can tell the bunker is purely cosmetic (or a handy outside shelf). I did toy with making it functional, but thought I'd follow prototype. It's drawn from drawings of a similar loco supplied by febalok (who I think made it!) Slightly modified to match photos. As soon as shapeways are back...

Bill - here are a few shots of my first test print, in primer, propped on the chassis. I've put one of the black dog steel tipplers in for scale. I'm afraid I only had time to spray a little primer on it, I haven't finished cleaning up the print on this one (the print quality on this and the other i...

The loco is very interesting and looks great. I am modelling a similar location around Sudan/Egypt/Eritrea (not yet decided). I have a few 1/48 camels and arab figures. I've spent a good while looking and there aren't many around. The camels are from a company called red zebra, whilst Evolution mini...

Acrylic paints mix well, so a metallic paint mixed with a standard colour paint gives a good metallic sheen to the base colour I managed to make a perfect match for the burnt stainless steel part of a bristol pegasus (on a fairey swordfish) using GW Macharius Solar orange and GW Boltgun metal.

As you can see from the webpage, the sub 2ft version is actually slightly longer, taller and wider than the 2ft one to fit the drive chains in, but you couldn't physically fit the drive into a 15" gauge Ruston without doing some serious redesigning, so it was only built down to 18" gauge. ...

If/when I redo mine, I might make parts with CAD/3D printing, so I'll let you know (if I remember, and if I do it - I have too many projects on the go)
