Hi John!
That would be, indeed, a good option for a pair of good eyes.

But I couldn't imagine Mr. Magoo here using such a glue for glueing those super tiny bits.Niether could I imagine myself trying to remove it for repair or whatever.And the face of Mr. Wallet discovering I have used his account for orthering a replacement BullAnt boguie because the glue has covered the brass gear, axle and retaining plate, is really far beyond my imagination.
Anyway thank you for the hint.It's  good to know you are here too.  :2t:

Daniel

Finally both tender mechanisms have got their motoriuzing.
One is still nacked but is here early in the morning so...

I think I will send boith to my friend John Vogelaar for installing the RC stuff and go later further with the clothes, paintings and all that stuff.

The construction of the tenders may make laugh every experienced modeler but is simple and Daniel friendly so if I ever decide to build more locos this will be probably my way again

Yes, it is a cage 3D printed in WS&F, the cheapest and strongest plastic material available at Shapeways with styrene clothes on made of .020 styrene

The2mm massive brass floor helps to provide some weight for the otherwise much too light construction. The motor bogie, the LiPo batteriy and all available corners filled with massive brass from the scrapbox will ensure a decent pulling force... If not the brass will be replaced by lead.

The underframe, which I wanted with acceptable detail, is 3D printed in FUD. A better option would be the new harder flexible black plastic added to the Shapeways range, but that would requiere also a better wallet so...

The opening at the top of the tender is mean to allow -if needed- a bigger nbattery taht would be disguised under a load of firewood, but I don't think such a big battery will be needed.

These photos shows how the printed cage is fastened to the brass plate

and this is one of the wooden buffer beams Pete had prepared for the brass locos. They are nice done but about 2mm too short so I will re-do them. Still, he did really very nice work

...and now, seeing the enlarged photos, I realize I must lower the tender body about 1mm or even more ...!:shocked:

Looking very good Daniel and those 3D prints have come out very nicely. Presumably there will be some sort of a "cap" over the motor and flywheel to protect them and the RC equipment from each other.

Hi Doug

Yes, there will be a layer of card or something like that but first I must know the size of the batteries.
There are several possibilities with one, two or three batteries.
(I assume yoiu remember the clothes of the tender are handmade in styrene using my selfmade rivetter.)



Now something else:

The ordered leaves arrived.
I feel really frustrated because for two boxes I've paid 20 euro (incl. post) but there are too few leaves for a wineyard. It would cost sixty or seventy euros to get a bit of a vineyard presence. So it will be just a small vine in the yard of the higher house extending above a pergola as the one in the house of my grandpa sixty years ago.

As soon as I get the chance to talk personally to Michael Carl I will see if he wants to made a serie of paper cuttings with the laser. I have already the design in mind for make a lot easier and chipper to cut and to display very convincing vines and other types of greenery.

Here the photos of my frustrating aquisition:

They are really beautiful ...

but see what one box contains:

Mr. Magoo is trying to convince me about letting these locos aside as they are now and, with the experience and knowledge we have gathered so far re-desig the components for a much better version that can be used as a kind of basic kit and would allow me to build as many locos as I want...
(Magoo is dreaming with a big area with a loco & car repair sheds...)

Gosh, there really are only a very few leaves in those boxes Daniel! You might have been better to get one of the many leaf cutters available for EUR 9.00 or EUR 10.00 and make your own. The examples look just as good and you could select the paper colours that you prefer.

And yes, I do remember that the tender's covering was produced using your own riveting machine and very nicely done. If you're going into mass production, I wonder if Shapeways printed coverings would be cheap enough and save a lot of time - assuming they can be done with minimal strata marks to avoid sanding off the rivets!!
