Great job! This is a very good looking fleet.
These are 3D printed right? The surface finish and crispness of the details is really impressive. Can I ask what your process is to get to this finish? Design, Printing material/process and hand finishing. I’m getting more and more interested in the possibilities of 3D printing, but wary of the process to get to these excellent results!
James I do all the printing for the loco's on resin printers. It's really a lot of fun. My son got me started with it a couple years ago and it makes a great retirement hobby. The advancements in printers and resin are amazing. Getting nice smooth surfaces is all about how you position pieces in the printer. I sometimes make several adjustment until I get it to the best I can do. Although I make these items for myself and the members of a small group of 7/8ths guys I also started to offer prints on my etsy site. Not getting rich but offsets the cost of my R&D. As I said all for fun.
Djjerme I use an Epax x10, e10, x1, elegoo mars2P, and a elegoo saturn. No finishing machine (my opinion total waste of money). I think the best value on the market right now is still the elegoo saturn. My son (who got me started in this hobby) has in addition to the above a couple uniz ibee's and as of today the new Phrozen mega8. The ibee prints in his opinon best but is pretty expensive compared to the saturn. You would be hard pressed to tell the difference in the prints. It's truely a lot of fun. Of course this is all just my opion. Any advise I can help you with I am more than happy to share. Just keep in mind it's just my opion.
