Atso-Cad Models is pleased to announce our latest 3D printed loco body: The Fowler Patriot.

 

(Note: tender not included) 

Also the N2 has been redesigned to fit a modified Graham Farish 3MT chassis.

 

Please visit our products page for further information. 

 


Due to changes in personal circumstance, production of the LNER Dia. 120 Passenger Full Brake kit has been suspended. At present I am unable to commit sufficient time or resources to manufacture this kit and I am presently unable to comment on when this situation is likely to change.

I apologise to those of you who are still waiting to purchase a kit and I can assure you that I share your frustrations.

While I am unable to commit much time to Atso-Cad Models, I am determined that the business will continue to operate in some format for during this difficult period. Therefore I have made several of my CAD models available to purchase as 3D prints directly from Shapeways. My Shapeways shop can be found at: http://www.shapeways.com/shops/Atso-CadModels

You will need to sign up to Shapeways and possess a PayPal account to purchase these models. Shapeways will usually supply the model within ten working days. Postage and packaging is a flat rate of 8 Euros.

Presently available are:

  • LNER Thompson L1 body
  • LNER Gresley K3/3 loco and tender body
  • LNER Gresley N2 body
  • LNER Bogie Brick Wagon
  • LNER Group Standard Tender
Further information on these products can be found here.

Please note that these models usually require some light sanding to gain the best surface finish before painting.
