Plymouth 2 1/2 ton at 1/13.7 scale

Postby franckcombe » Tue Oct 29, 2013 8:21 am

My Friend Bill Martinsen build a Plymouth 2 1/2 tons at 1/13.7 scale. He has always the flair to find good model with a strong character. His model inspires me a lot. Bill Martinsen kindly send me datas and photos of the models.

I choose to build it with my friend Jean-Pierre Duval two Plymouths (one for each) because we have complementary competencies and we find fun to build it in common. We decided to build them in 3D and 2d with CNC machine in order to gain time and eventually to share it with other modelers. Jean-Pierre Duval is a talentuous modeler in 3D / 2D, he has already built a lot of locos at various scales.

This is the model from advertising

This is the true model

Jean-Pierre draws a general view of the loco and in a near future will post a complete and detail drawing for the locos

The link for the drawing is http://jpduval.free.fr/Plymouth-2T5/Plymouth-2T5.PDF

You can also visit his web site specialized in live stream garden loco http://jpduval.free.fr/ (the web site is in french but you may find many interesting drawings)

Thank you for the drawings.
No guarantee that I will ever make a model of the loco, though :D

Hello Franck,

a lovely Loco.

Please allow me one question: Can anybody get those printed parts and if the answer is yes, where?

Thanks for showing us this very nice Plymouth

... Franck's first posting includes his offer and links for purchasing parts:
... Franck hat die Moeglichkeit zur Bestellung einiger Teile in seinem ersten Posting angeboten und verlinkt:



... drop him a PM in case he only drops in here occasionally ...
... schreib' ihm doch eine Nachricht, wenn er hier nur gelegentlich vorbeischauen sollte ...

Cheers
