Still looking for the right headlight casting,

like it had in its later years (Pyle style).


Thanx for following along.

...cheers

Hi Mikel

These shouldn't be too hard to track down in the US.
Cal-Scale, Precision Scale did them in metal.

There are also some showing up on Shapeways.
One of the bigger hobby shops locally with an on-line store.

Hope that this helps.

I first bought a number of 3D-printed Pyle headlights at Shapeways.

But was unhappy with them, as they were printed shut on the back,
and when I tried to drill through, at least 30% broke.

Have now had some local printer design and print some for me,
with a hole right through, so a 3mm LED will fit right in.

However, for such small vehicles they are a little large,
maybe I will order smaller ones, and fiddle with SMD LEDs then.

Hi Mikel  :wave:

I saw this, I think, back in the late '80s ...  :old dude:

... in the 'Narrow Gauge & Shortline Gazette'.


BOTH as the 'Durango Press' you've made ...  :)

... & as plans, I think, by some dude as well.



I was modelling in 1:24n3 at that time ...

... & thought WOW it'd be a C :cool: :cool: L build !


BUT the plow blade had me stumped ...  :us:

... even as a fairly intrepid determined draftsman.



Anyway ... Your No.2 looks  T :cool: :cool:   C :cool: :cool: L

Your shed, with its crane & ground, GREAT too !


:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:


Si.

Thanks !

Yeah I have been collecting all the views I can find,
and tried to base my build on them.

It has made me want to build it again,
in another (larger) scale...

Maybe someday.

Cheers
