    Sorry if this is a bit off topic. But seeing as their is a few train spotters here.:lol: I thought it might be of intrest.

    This is my own design slot together 'Jinty' Fowler Class 3F locomotive.

    Its taken me a week to design just the chasis(the hard part). One hour to cut. Pictured is the MKI version(after been tested by my 2 lads for the day). Just made the MKII and its perfect. After making this push along version. I am hoping to put an electric motor in the MKIII. Loco will be approx 500mm long.

    I promise the next one will be a slot together Spit. With working retacts, prop and flaps.

    Wow thats very cool man!

    The old Jintys were a great workhouse, especially helping those goods trains up hills when the Black 5s couldnt quite do it on their own.

    My grandfather was a fitter at Derby MPD for LMS and then later BR.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for the kind comments guys.

    Wurger- I use a homemade 3 axis cnc to do the cutting. Cutting area is 670mm x 1150mm. An awesome tool that allows me to do signage and even 3D sculptures. I even have a program where I can scan an object(Say a person). Take that scan slice the the CAD model of the person and then machine it. The best bit is supping a cup of tea while it does the work.

    Vicking Berserker - I am trying to sell some at the weekend at the local market. I have been busy cutting some free downloads of dinosaurs, planes,insects,trains etc.

    I choose the 'Jinty' as this was my favorite loco on my Grandads train track as a kid(I still have it).

    If all goes well at the market. I will have to design a Spit with at least retractable undercarriage.

    I will have to learn how to do muliple quotes in a single post.
