Re: Bigelov's projects

I seem to have so many projects that it's hard to focus on one thing. But I have been slowly progressing with my narrow gauge loco shed. I printed a lot of details that have been sitting around for about a year and a half... and then got sidetracked with US TT rolling stock. So I am finishing off wh...

Re: BTTB 1979 product catalogue

I love old catalogues :) A while back I found a Polish website that has scans of pages of lots of catalogues. Unfortunately they are jpg images one page at at time rather than pdf's, but it does have this 1979 BTTB catalogue on there as well. The link is https://as.rumia.edu.pl/tt/kat/ and it has th...

Re: Bigelov's projects

The most I have made from these jigs is two items and haven't had any problems. The pins stay in the MDF, except in the bending jigs, so it would just be moisture absorption, hard handling and heat that would affect the jigs. Two pieces are just not enough for any problems.

Re: Bigelov's projects

Below is the jig and a pair of handrails I started for the Caboose end platform. It was at this point that I stopped working on the caboose as I couldn't get my head around how to make the rest. But back to the jig... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51549702089_09aa1b7efa_z.jpg You can see on th...

Re: Bigelov's projects

Late last year I was talking a bit about handrails and jigs, initially related to the Meeker Southern caboose and I mentioned that I would go into more detail. Better late than never... Here are a few of those jigs. They are basically 1mm (0.040") piano wire poked into holes drilled in 3mm (1/8...

Re: Bigelov's projects

Some time back I got a Shapeways Russian narrow gauge TU7 body print and I have finally finished detailing it and applied the basic colours. It is shown alongside my old TU7 that I made from styrene. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51627846294_91a6661cea_z.jpg The new one is only a static model,...
