Re: Borkum Match Light Railway - the Workbench thread

Does anyone know anything about the colours on these wagons ?

Only remaining powder wagon has evidence of red and "some kind" of yellow on the doors. But question is how they were painted while still inside the Arsenal. ..?

Re: Suitable Plaster

For bigger scales I can see the need for brick-by-brick but in G scale I just buy brick sheets from Jackson miniatures or make myself from hardcard. DAS clay is another way of doing it. Sorry can't help with plaster for your version.

Re: Borkum Match Light Railway - the Workbench thread

I did prepare a drawing which a friend did a CAD drawing from, then shapeways did the rest. The one at the far right is a none painted one. A friend did tip me to use graphite in the form of a normal pencil (since it contains graphite..) so I sand the axles a bit conical and then put on as much from...

Re: Borkum Match Light Railway - the Workbench thread

Weekend once more and time for modelling! A few days ago I tryed 0.5mm plastikard in the machine and it does not cut through as I hoped, but it scores good marks which is very easy to snap of from the sheet when done. Also bought some new glue. Both Tamiya extra thin and Humbrol liquid poly. See bel...

Re: Simplex in 16mm scale, now painted!

S scale is indeed a very rare scale these days and even if most things are made in the states there is also a very active group in UK building in this scale. I intended to use ready made parts much more than I actually did.. Wheels for example is much to small so I did fix 3D printed instead. Switch...

Re: Borkum Match Light Railway - the Workbench thread

Hi Henrix Was that card or plastic? David (Doc) Plastikard. I guess 1.5mm would work to, since on this thickness the machine makes scores you use to snap of the edges of the piece you want, it does not cut all through. 0.25mm however cuts through (so does the previous Cameo..), but hope that also 0...

Tried to cut 1mm this evening. Works the same as 0.75mm, no problem. No reason for me to go any thicker.

That really looks good. I didn't know that you could paint them yellow. I thought they came in any color as long as it was green! David (Doc) Thanks :P The idea with sand yellow sounded right at first but now after I am not sure. First it looks more like on fire then sand yellow plus I am now leani...

Re: Borkum Match Light Railway - the Workbench thread

I wonder , are there online companies ho do this silhouette cutting. It is just that I looked into laser cutting, and it was too expensive for what I wanted because cost is based on number of cuts. Shapeways now charge for space used, so some hollow items don't use up as much space as they look lik...

Re: Borkum Match Light Railway - the Workbench thread

just done some experiments removing unwanted flat areas on some of my 3D printed stuff. Does not make a huge diffeence for my track, but the small amount saved and the ability to say use an engraved surface might make it worth while. It also dramatically reduced file size so it would be possible to...

Re: Borkum Match Light Railway - the Workbench thread

I've looked at this machine and my question is "Will it cut 1mm card?" Then you could laminate layers like the laser cut ply folks do. David (Doc) It "might" cut 1mm plastikard, but there is no need since you stack the layers like plywood. If your final need is say 1.5mm thick, ...
