Hi all from Italy

Postby Edgardo_Rosatti » Wed May 11, 2016 8:35 pm

Hello everyone, I'm Edgardo and I am writing from Italy.
I write my first post in this section of the forum because I do not understand well how should I present myself. Using an automatic translator.

I saw your forum some time ago and I'm part of an association that promotes the Italian TT scale. I saw that you know our group called GAS TT.

I decided to enroll at your forum to make known our activities we do here with us and I hope they can be of interest.

In Italy the TT scale is poorly understood and when can we participate in exhibitions and events.

I thank the forum administrators for having accepted my membership.

Yes, Welcome Edgardo! Anyone in TT is welcome here, I think you are the first from Italy.
I would be interested in seeing some pictures of Italian TT, Please post some if you can.

Welcome, Edgardo,

I've seen some beautiful models of Italian steamers and electrics--in HO scale. :eh:

I spent a couple of months running around Italy in the summer of 1968. Still a few steam locomotives in operation. It was great! Love to see what you and your compadres have going in TT.

Thank you all for your warm welcome, for me it is a real pleasure.

As I said in the previous post, in Italy the TT scale is poorly understood and we don't have producers involved with Italian models. Here in Europe we often look to German producers, Tillig in particular but also other brands like Arnold. So let's modify those models for our needs and what we fail to realize the produce ourselves.

In our association we have good modelers and thanks to them we are implementing a series of models using the technique of photoengraving and 3D printing via shapeway.
I am fascinated by the photoengraving, and I made a series of accessories and a shunting locomotive.

Below pointing you the link of our website and our forums prior translation you will see our work:

I apologize but other images are not able to post them.
I hope to do better in the future.

I can show you a new blog about the electronic application of model railways that use Arduino and Processing. The blog was created recently and over time will be enriched by interesting articles:

Hi Edgardo

Welcome to the board. I also studied your blog and will recommend to my son, he is the ardunio expert in the family. :-)

A question: Can we get somehow an etched plate for those railway crossing? Last year I saw such gate in Tirano and it would be nice on our new layout.
Greetings from Austria

Hi Edgardo,

Great stuff! I love the look of FS equipment from the 50s-70s.

Were you involved with that lovely E444 (I think it was?) made from photoetched parts?
